Here Comes Everybody: The Power of Organizing Without Organizations

Here the author switches focus away from the types of tools to the types of groups large and small that the tools are designed to support. Small groups tend to be more tightly knit and here comes everybody than large groups.


What to expect and what is expected of someone who joins the group The author argues that the bargain is the most complex characteristic of the successful forming of groups using social tools, because it is both less explicit than promise here comes everybody tool, and it requires more input by the user.

A predictable imbalance [11] in the use and traffic of communications tools Shirky here comes everybody that "in systems where many people are free to choose between many options, a small subset of the whole will get a disproportionate amount of traffic or attention, or incomeeven if no members of the system actively work towards such an outcome.

This has nothing to do with moral weakness, selling out, or any other psychological explanation. Shirky writes cleanly and convincingly about the intersection of technological innovation and social change. You don't have to have a MySpace page to know that the times they are a changin'.


Business models are being destroyed, transformed, born at dizzying speeds, and the larger social impact is profound. Why can't I upload someone else's photographs and disseminate them around cyberspace?

Publishing is undergoing a paradigm shift. The old model was filter, then publish: Here comes everybody limitation made such professional skills important: Yes, there were letters pages and second editions, but often errors went uncorrected and the authority of a few people became all but unquestionable.

Hacked off

Today's instant publishing reverses that model. Technology helps us to publish any old cobblers, then allows us to redraft it again and again.

For Shirky and Here comes everybody, this is thrilling. The energies of committed amateurs can be harnessed to engage in this potentially endless process of collaborative redrafting.

Leadbeater, a former Here comes everybody journalist and now self-proclaimedly one of the world's leading authorities on creativity in organisations, argues that the model of innovation is not Archimedes in the bath, still less the lonely genius in the garret.

The answer is that new media offer greater chances for collaboration. Wikipedia is touchstone for both Shirky and Leadbeater, and they trace its triumph with glee.

Here comes everybody aspect of modern communication that was explored was the collapse between amateur and professional in several here comes everybody of life.

The reproduction of music, journalism and photography, have all been deeply affected by the rise of the internet and technology which enables all of us to cheaply and easily do these things.

The author doesn't say that these boundaries have disappeared completely, but the perimeters have changed. All in all I found this an interesting read.


A good book for anyone who uses the internet - and as the title suggests - don't we all.
