Video of the Day: Clay Shirky on the New Digitally Social Urbanism

Excerpted from Clay Shirky‘s presentation at the Social Computing Symposium 2012

James Brown explains:

“Clay Shirky on social spaces and the changing urban environment: The old stores gone out of business are not going to be replaced by new ones.Rather, the space occupied by the building structures are going to be claimed by new groups of persons having new uses in mind. Whereas it took New Yorkers a generation to learn what was going on with lofts, the learning curve on these new social spaces will hopefully be less long.”
