As part of Rollins College’s Founder’s Day 125th anniversary celebration on November 4, 2010, acclaimed author and technology consultant Clay Shirky will give a keynote address titled, “Creativity and Generosity in a Connected Age."

Shirky is the author of Here Comes Everybody, a book which explores the digital revolution of collaboration and how it is changing organizations and industries.

Shirky will discuss Internet technologies (including, social networks) and their impact in creating a “cognitive surplus” of talent and intellect. The event is free and open to the public.

A huge thanks to Mark Baratelli over at the Daily City for forwarding this announcement over here. I have read "Here Comes Everybody" - it's a great account of some of the many ways the Internet is having an effect on how people organize in the Internet Age. I have not had a chance to read "Cognitive Surplus" yet, but I'm sure you will hear a lot of the material from his new book at this speech.

P.S. Clay, if you read this post, I would love to have you on the Florida Creatives podcast. Let's chat.
