Tom Hanks Clay Shirky header

Ever notice how writer-thinker Clay Shirky is particularly witty and engaging for a tech pundit? That’s because he’s Tom Hanks in glasses and a bald cap.

    Doing finals research, was watching Clay Shirky give a talk (I’d read Here Comes Everybody, but not seen the man speak) and I was all “Damn, this guy looks like Tom Hanks,” so I typed in “Clay Shirky is Tom Hanks,” on Google. I knew I wasn’t crazy. Score 1 for Slacktory in the fight against filter failure!
