TED explains new media technology to the State Department

I don't know how many of you are viewers of TED, but it is one of the most intriguing sites on the internet. They get amazing speakers talking about ideas from speakers as diverse as Prime Minister Gordon Brown, to inventor Josh Silver, to stunt man Steve Truglia. It's an amazing source of inspiration.

One of the most interesting for us social media hogs is a video by internet icon Clay Shirkey from earlier this year. He offers a speech on the internet and social media's place in history. His full lecture gives amazing examples of how the internet is changing the world. I have edited the talk down to his main points for you here.
