TV = 10,000 entire wikipedias per year! [May. 2nd, 2008|02:00 am]

Short and brilliant talk by Clay Shirky on New Media earlier this week, titled "Where do people find the time?", that's been making its way through the Internets. My favorite quotes:
Desperate Housewives essentially functioned as a kind of cognitive heat sink, dissipating thinking that might otherwise have built up and caused society to overheat.
In response to a TV producer being contemptuous of World of Warcraft:
However lousy it is to sit in your basement and pretend to be an elf, I can tell you from personal experience it's worse to sit in your basement and try to figure if Ginger or Mary Ann is cuter.
