herecomeseverybody Part 1.

I started reading this book because I’ve always been interested in people’s behavior, and in particular how that behavior is modified when people are in groups.  I’ve read some of Clay Shirky’s work previously and have always found it very interesting and well thought out, although usually it is a bit long winded.

Here I’ll overview a few of the main concepts that Clay discusses in the book that I found the most interesting and what my thoughts were on them.
