Clay Shirky on Cognitive Surplus… or Turn Off TV! Now!

I had not heard about this guy before. I found this video in Seth Godin’s blog. But I agree so much with him that I have to share this video.

He talks about media and how it’s changing a lot, but the keypoint for me is when he addresses how much time we spend watching TV and all the things we could do with that time. One example: with the time spent on watching TV in the US in a year you could produce two thousand Wikipedias.
