We're Looking for the Mouse

Clay Shirky shares a powerful argument for why people will continue to move to participatory media and away from TV.

He outlines what he calls society's "Cognitive Surplus" and re-frames media's future as a triathlon - consumption, participation/producing, and sharing.

One of my favorite lines: a screen that ships without a mouse, ships broken.

That was a great line of Clay's at the Web 2.0 Expo!

Unity, I love Clay Shirky too - I nearly fell out of my chair at Web 2.0 when he gave his mouse speech. We invited him to talk at Health 2.0 and he accepted!! We have to follow up to figure out details.
