I haven't blogged about hat's going on in Iran in large part because I haven't had time to breathe, much less keep up with what's been going on. My knowledge of what's been happening is pretty much limited to the Facebook updates Terry Hummer has been posting--he's been passing along lots of stuff from Twitter, and it's been fascinating.
Anyway, my point is that this video, a presentation by Clay Shirky posted by Ted, is really appropriate given what's been happening in Iran. He's talking about how the internet and communication technology in general is changing the media, and the current rebellion against the mullahs in Iran is just the latest example of that. Obviously, Shirky isn't talking about Iran, but he might as well be, because the lessons are the same.
