Finding Meaning Together on the Real-Time Web

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.


Excerpt:


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.

The Question: What is the most interesting thing you came across today?

The Question: What is the most interesting thing you came across today? | Exploring Change Through Ongoing Discussions | Scoop.it

Great piece by Ross Dawson about Twitter, and how people can add something to what he refers to as the "global brain" which is a knowledge network that he says will become Twitter News Network.


Very interesting links to other discussions with Gerd Leonhard and the future of Twitter.


Twitter has moved from asking ‘what are you doing now?’ to ‘what’s happening?’, and now describes itself as an ‘information network‘.


**The Twitter News Network is a manifestation of the global brain, in which we create value for others by contributing to the visibility and availability of high-value information.


While many contribute nothing of value to Twitter,


****many extraordinarily talented and interesting contributors are doing what they can to add value to others. It is a choice we make, by how we engage in our social networks.


****If we consider what we can best contrbute to global consciousness, it is very likely the most interesting things we come across.


**The most intriguing, through-provoking, stimulating ideas, whether they be in the form of an article, a video, a conversation, or anything else from the vastness of media and ideas we encounter each day.


**If everyone just shared the single most interesting thing they came across each day, we would all be so much better off.


****This tiny effort would add value to everyone. We could all ask ourselves: What is the most interesting thing I saw today?, and share it, since it would very likely be of interest to many others.

Thought Leaders Discuss The Future of Curation & Social Media

Thought Leaders Discuss The Future of Curation & Social Media | Exploring Change Through Ongoing Discussions | Scoop.it
We asked Mark Cuban, Dennis Crowley, Gina Bianchini, and more than a dozen others. Here's what they said.


This article by Dan Frommer and Jen Ortiz for Business Insider links to a slideshow with quotes from major Social Media company CEOs and co-founders, intellectuals and a Curated Twitter persona, among others about their takes on the future of Social Media. 


Here's just one of them, from Dae Mellencamp, CEO of Vimeo:


**** "The future of social media is the loss of the distinction between media and social interaction online. Mass media and social media will be seamlessly integrated across devices and platforms to offer relevant, dynamic, personalized experiences for people anywhere.


**Discoverability and the import of editorial curation will not be lost, but rather inherently incorporated into the environments for richer and more customized experiences."


The full article has many more gems and is well worth a few minutes of your time!
