Clay Shirky about how technology is changing us from consumers to collaborators

24 June 2011 BY

Clay Shirky is a teacher at the Interactive Telecommunications Program at NYU, where he also researches the interrelated effects of our social and technological networks. He is somebody with a firm opinion and somebody who knows about the evolution of search engines and the web in general.

Last year Shirky visited Google as part of the Authors @ Google series. There he talked about how technology is changing us from consumers to collaborators, part of his book “Cognitive Surplus”. Luckily for us Google puts these videos online ;). Enjoy!

Nice job, you found it!

Now, go try out the 12th one:

Use Google Translate to bypass a paywall...

Ran into a page you can't read because it is blocked or paywalled? Here's a quick trick (doesn't always work, but often does!):

Type the page into Google translate (replace the example with the page you want):

http://translate.google.com/translate?sl=ja&tl=en&u=http://example.com/

How about that!?
