This is an inspiring piece by Jeff Pulver, Founder of the #140 Conferences, angel investor, curator and so much more. I have had the good fortune of attending the #140 Conferences, meeting people in real life, hearing about miracles that occurred as a result of connecting through social networks.
We are seeing what happens when you are living in a world where hundreds of millions of people can discover each other, and communicate directly; where barriers to entry and in fact gatekeepers slowly go away.
We are seeing what happens when people discover each other, discover that they can feel and connect, and can touch and engage.
We now have generations of people who realize that they are living in a world of 7 billion other people, and where for the first time in our human history every voice matters. There is profoundness in terms of where this brings us.
There is a virtualization even though we are in the physical. There is still something happening spiritually, that is touching, changing, and connecting many of us.
Some of us, unfortunately are kind of numb to it. They do not get it. They feel something but they do not know why they feel it.
There are other people who actually have this intense ability not only to feel, but sometimes affect positive change. So these technologies are helping us accelerate some things.
