Wiki Unit

Clay Shirky (via Boing Boing), has just posted a great essay on where the time necessary for writing the Wikipedia came from.  Briefly he has posited that the cognitive capacity required for creating the site was equal to 1/2,000th of what was dedicated to watching TV in the U.S. last year.  This is a brilliant comparison to my mind, and really makes me want to find the time to read Shirky’s new book, Here Comes Everybody.
