Thank you so much for this rich collection. I followed your link to Clay Shirky's presentation (video 42:12) at the Berkman Center. Resonating where he says.


Ridiculously easy group-forming improves: sharing, conversation, collaboration, collective action.


Such as this Pepper Spraying Cop made into a meme on twitter and an art form in other places.

thank you for your words and the meme contribution:) didn't see it, quite a brilliant play.
Prompt me to think we are learning to use reflectivity differently, as if connectivity and tools allows our use of reflectivity to be lighter, faster and still intelligent and - differently from wittiness of intellectual hero - easy to interact with, work in process type, if this would Indeed rewire some of our relational dynamic...

the description of Shirky you mention indeed add clarity to experience. He actually quotes Seb Paquet on "ridiculously easy group forming", one more important aspect of 'what changed'.
