Discussion post #1
After you’ve read the Shirky and read or watched the other reading or video you chose, write a response that draws on what you have read (be explicit in naming which pieces you are discussing). You can bring in any other recent examples that relate to Shirky’s points about group formation and what groups can achieve in this age of easy connection via social media and the internet.
Include an image that relates to the topic in your blog post. Remember images you use should be CC-licensed, or otherwise licensed for your use, and properly credited. You may also use screenshots you create from social media.

Apply Shirky’s ideas about group formation to a current activist group or movement that you’ve been following (or are involved with). Make sure to analyze how the group came about, what happened along the way and what goals were achieved by comparing them to another reading or video of the week.
