Clay Shirky on collaboration

Interesting perspective on the web. interview and at TED

Here is a more recent youtube video, author of Here Comes Everybody.

His speaking style is particularly effective- posing questions, thought experiments, limited but clear AVs, lots of big ideas and very specific support for each point. He also seems genuinely curious about every question he asks.

from June 2008 Entrepreneurship Educator Newsletter:

" as a Classroom Tool
Avanta Corp. has created a website called where entrepreneurs and small business owners have a chance to win $10,000 each month for being voted the best idea by visitors to the site. Think of it as an on-line American Idol for business ideas. Several universities have begun to use this site in the classroom. Some faculties are having their students analyze the viability of ideas proposed at the site using techniques learned in their classes. Others are having their students develop ideas, post them at the site, and actively learn from the feedback offered by visitors to the site. Several of the monthly $10,000 winners have been college students. The site is a good fit for today’s college students who are active in social networking sites and prefer experiential learning."

cognitive jolt

According to a NYT article, biometric studies of successful TV ads use a cognitive jolt to gain attention:

"Although winners of Lions are replete with emotional appeals meant to engage viewers, they also use what Ms. Moses called a “cognitive jolt,? a twist or surprise, to earn interest."

This comes up in Sticky Ideas, Van de Ven research and 3M coversations about the difficulty of changing behavior. How to teach this? Or better, how to use it to teach more effectively?
