There’s so much great stuff in this video that I couldn’t not post it. (And Lefsetz is right; that quote about Ashton and Ellen on Twitter is incredible.)

I have to say, though, that I don’t think the video looks deep enough. Yes, social media/networking is a fundamental shift in the way we communicate — but my question is what’s causing that shift in the first place? It’s partially technology, but as Clay Shirky says:

“A revolution doesn’t happen when society adopts new tools; it happens when society adopts new behaviors.”

More on this idea is coming soon.
