Clay Shirky is blogging again

at It looks like the first time I referenced Mr. Shirky’s work was in July 2001 back when I was still using Blogger. Irritatingly, the article I mentioned “Java is Essential to the Software Ecosystem” has suffered terminal link rot on both shirky dot com and oreilly dot com. Kudos to for preserving their own writing about his open letter.

He writes about higher education in this new space. He’s clear-minded and smart. I’m delighted to see he mentions being on a podcast with Paul Ford, another web stalwart I’ve been reading for a long time. I’ll queue up the Postlight podcast for myself.

What else did he post in November 2021?
