    Story
    (85)

    A revelatory examination of how the wildfirelike spread of new forms of social interaction enabled by technology is changing the way humans form groups and exist within them, with profound long-term economic and social effects - for good and for ill. A handful of kite hobbyists scattered around the world find each other online and collaborate on the most radical improvement in kite design in decades. A midwestern professor of Middle Eastern history starts a blog after 9/11 that becomes essential reading for journalists covering the Iraq war.

    David Turkington says: "Sorry I don't see the magic"
    "Great explanation of how ideas spread like fire"

    If you could sum up Here Comes Everybody in three words, what would they be?

    thought provoking communication


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Here Comes Everybody?

    The opening story grabs you with a "truth and justice" story of disparate and diverse people communicating and joining forces.


    What about Eric Michael Summerer’s performance did you like?

    Everything, he's one of the reasons I got the book.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I read during my commute, so the option didn't even cross my mind. If I were driving for 10 hours, I could have done it easily, though.


    Any additional comments?
