Clay Shirky's book
Here Comes Everybody: The Power of Organizing without Organizations came out last year and has started a lot of conversations about the power of online communities.

Shirky explains in his book that, "Communications tools don’t get socially interesting until they get technologically boring... It's when a technology becomes normal, then ubiquitous, and finally so pervasive as to be invisible, that the really profound changes happen."

I recently sat down with Clay Shirky to ask about the changing role of nonprofit organizations in this new technological century. Watch the video below to hear Shirky's response.
