New technologies are enabling new kinds of cooperative structures to flourish as a way of getting things done in business, science, the arts and elsewhere, as an alternative to centralized and institutional structures, which Clay Shirky sees as self-limiting.

Shirky is the author of Here Comes Everybody.
