How social media can make history

Somehow I have missed the talk by Clay Shirky which he gave for TED.com, however now it is on my weblog.

"While news from Iran streams to the world, Clay Shirky shows how Facebook, Twitter and TXTs help citizens in repressive regimes to report on real news, bypassing censors (however briefly). The end of top-down control of news is changing the nature of politics."

Clay Shirky also maintains a great website shirky.com which I can advise to read from time to time.
