The Internet has become an integral part of our personal and professional lives and has transformed the ways in which we connect and collaborate with one another.

Clay Shirky’s book provides a lucid and penetrating analysis on how technological advances have empowered people to do things together, and how those tools can upend traditional organizational structures to meet people’s needs. In an engaging style, Clay Shirky’s Here Comes Everybodyillustrates how everyday people are taking advantage of new technologies, such as social networking and peer-to-peer applications, to share information, work together, and take public action in the “virtual” world to affect great social transformations in our real one.
