Here Comes Everybody: The Power of Organizing Without Organizations

Clay Shirky, The Penguin Press, New York, 2008.

By now you are well aware of my penchant for writers who affirm, confirm and otherwise provide research to back up my own assertions.

As we at Bold Enterprises help you empower all people in your company, regardless of power, titles or places on the organizational chart, Clay Shirky examines the impact of the social dynamics taking place on the web on power and getting things done. With interesting results.

Interesting because it is not merely people who are already in a working relationship who are experiencing new effectiveness with the power of the web behind them. That’s old news.

But people who would never have had opportunity to meet much less collaborate are finding each other and making a difference in matters that are important to them.

Who’s choosing these matters of importance? No longer the bosses and others with positional power. They don’t even figure into the equation, except maybe as a source of resistance.

You and I are choosing these issues of personal and corporate importance and connecting with those who can help us and whom we can help as well.
