Interesting idea this. Broadly I agree. You can plan and theorise all you want, but it’s not till technology gets into the wild, and in the hands of users, that you can really see what it offers. And it is often the enthusiasts who lead... the ones who experiment, who knock off the rough edges, who show what is possible.
Another great quote from Clay Shirky, as noted by Russell Brand.
Clay has a real talent for summing things up in an eloquent, yet down-to-earth, way.
