Video, Complete Program: Clay Shirky Interviewed on C-SPAN + Video from "State of the Net" 2011

From a Program Summary on the C-SPAN.org Web Site:

The Communicators sat down with Professor Clay Shirky at this year’s “State of the Net” conference. Given the growth of smartphones, Shirky speculates on the future ways users will be able to access the Internet and uses the political unrest across the Middle East as an example of the value of social media in political revolutions. He currently teaches at both the Carter Journalism Institute and the Tisch School of the Arts at New York University

The program runs 21 minutes.
