Here Comes Everybody

Finally finished reading Here Comes Everybody by Clay Shirky:

Young people are taking better advantage of social tools, extending their capabilities in ways that violate old models not because they know more useful things than we do but because they know fewer useless things than we do.


My students, many of whom are fifteen years younger than I am, don't have to unlearn those things, because they never had to learn them in the first place.

Unlearning is the key.
