How cognitive surplus will change the world

by garimaraina

The internet allows us to contribute content, not just consume, and is largely built on freely contributed content.
We should celebrate and support projects with ‘civic value’. For example, wikipedia, free and open source software, artists and musicians who freely distribute their works, and so forth.
Creating and sharing–sharing laughter and civic value are really BOTH important. We need to celebrate, support and reward all aspects of positive interaction. We need love and laughter to support us getting down to solve big world problems. Solving world problems comes from love as well, love of ourselves, each other and earth. Great talk, but I think laughing at cute cats or anything else that’s joy spirited only lifts us all up! 🙂
