Yes, Shirky writes a lot of interesting pieces. I always read him first
when I get my copy of Business 2.0.

In fact he's on my list of possible speakers for the economics/business
section of Extro-5. One obstacle is that he lives far away, so expenses are
a problem.

I second Jim's recommendation to read his Web site, which gathers a lot of
his writing. Some misses, but a large number of hits.
