He teaches New Media as an associate teacher at New York University's (NYU) graduate Interactive Telecommunications Program (ITP).

Shirky divides his time between consulting, teaching, and writing on the social and economic effects of Internet technologies. His consulting practice is focused on the rise of decentralized technologies such as peer-to-peer, web services, and wireless networks that provide alternatives to the wired client—server infrastructure that characterizes the World Wide Web.
In The Long Tail, Chris Anderson calls Shirky "a prominent thinker on the social and economic effects of Internet technologies."
