NYU’s Clay Shirky was in London this week to promote his new book Here Come’s Everybody. I was lucky enough to interview him on Monday and my efforts published in today’s Technology Guardian.

Shirky talks about how the nature of organisation is evolving because of cheap access to communications technology. I also mention the launch of the Encyclopedia of Life, a thoroughly ambitious attempt to document the 1.8m species on the planet using a similar organistational structre to Wikipedia
