Hi All,

I’m surprised no one has mentioned Clay’s Shirky’s Here Comes Everybody, a seminal work that explains a number of shifts, including the unprecedented expansion of global interactivity ushered in by the availability of social media. I found that his treatment of mass amateurization, bonding capital vs. bridging capital, and power law effects explain some phenomena that I’ve been noticing for a year, such as the net loss of members in some very old, established associations. Shirky includes a rich annotated bibliography as well. Highly recommended.

Regards,
