“When a lot of ideas come into circulation, it changes society. When there are more ideas in circulation, there are more ideas for any individual to disagree with. More media always means more argument. That’s what happens when media space expands.”

- Clay Shirky, quoted in this TED post by Helen Walters, on his talk at TED GLobal 2012.
