- I need to give credit where credit is due. While I reference Clay Shirky’s book in the article and build on his work in original ways, the term “half-life of knowledge” is his. While I turned it into the “half-life of discipleship” and feel confident that the rest of the article is acceptable, I wanted to ensure that Shirky got credit for that particular term. Read his book, it is amazing:
- Clay Shirky, Here Comes Everybody: The Power of Organizing without Organizations (Penguin Press: New York, 2008)
