Today I read about the removal of city benches, new funding proposals for Translink, and how to support and finance new immigrants to our city. I became so enthralled with the 'Community of Interest' bloggers, I have not yet made it back to the main pages of the Sun...but then, I already know that Tiger Woods won his golf tournament on Sunday.
One of the stories, Kennedy Stewart's piece on the removal of benches reminded me of an excellent book I read last year Here Comes Everybody, by Clay Shirky While the sub heading is 'the power of organizing without organizations', it is really about how technology is changing how we communicate and take actions. It is a very good read, and I highly recommend it, especially to those of you who are not yet 'Wickipedia' regulars, or signed up on Facebook!
