Clay Shirky on Institutions vs Collaboration

Yet another brilliant TED talks video.. Some of the community organizations which I have been looking at are aligned along similar principles.
Weak institutions, loosely organized groups.. Interestingly, low on technology… In Shirky’s video there is an emphasis on technology. How can we explain heavily linked, continued, collaborative action that does not rely heavily on technology in today’s day and age? What motivates these people to cut across notions of time and distance that most of us navigate with a heavy reliance on technology?
