Cognitive surplus : creativity and generosity in a connected age

Summary:
Since the postwar boom, we've had a surfeit of intellect, energy and time, a cognitive surplus. Shirky argues that this cognitive surplus, rather than being some strange new departure from normal behaviour, actually returns our society to forms of collaboration that were natural to us up to and through the early 20th century.
