Treasure Hunt with Clay Shirky

Here’s a game. Watch this twelve-minute TED talk with Clay Shirky, and find the following:

* an analogy

* an emotional appeal

* a metaphor (hint: it’s in someone else’s argument that Shirky is paraphrasing)

* antithesis

* Fun fact: I quoted Shirky a whole lot in my dissertation. Like this, for example.
