Clay Shirky on Cognitive Surplus

A truly impressive and visionary speech, summing up why we do web 2.0. Must see Clay Shirky explaining what TV has grabbed for the last 50 years: our cognitive surplus. (of course, you all have already seen it, its from April 2008)

Excellent quotes (some literally, some only overlap in meaning, wasn't quick enough to type everything)
(telling a story he experienced)...
TV Reporter: Where do people find all the time to do wikipedia?
Clay Shirky: No one who works in TV gets to ask that question.
You know where the times comes from. It comes from the cognitive surplus you have been masking for the last 50 years.

At least they are doing something.

... the amount spent watching TV worldwide equals to creating 10.000 wikipedia projects each year...

She looks behind the TV fumbling through the cables, and we wondered... she said she is "looking for the mouse"
