Wisdom in the Age of Information and the Importance of Storytelling in Making Sense of the World: An Animated Essay ~ brain pickings

Wisdom in the Age of Information and the Importance of Storytelling in Making Sense of the World: An Animated Essay ~ brain pickings | Linguagem Virtual | Scoop.it

by Maria Popova


"For my part in the 2014 Future of Storytelling Summit, I had the pleasure of collaborating with animator Drew Christie — the talent behind that wonderful short film about Mark Twain and the myth of originality — on an animated essay that I wrote and narrated, exploring a subject close to my heart and mind: the question of how we can cultivate true wisdom in the age of information and why great storytellers matter more than ever in helping us make sense of an increasingly complex world. It comes as an organic extension of the seven most important life-learnings from the first seven years of Brain Pickings. Full essay text below — please enjoy."

Does Reality TV Affect Our View On Surveillance?

What have you been watching lately? There's a good chance (whether you admit to it or not) that you've been watching some reality TV. The "Reality TV" genre is mega popular, a massive cultural force, even though it's not really "reality". Contrived situations and manipulated scenarios make these shows entertainment rather than documentation, but they still feature real people who are willing to have their lives recorded. As a culture, we've become accustomed to watching people, but how does that affect our ideas about BEING WATCHED, especially given the recent NSA controversies? Check out the episode and find out!

Are you an Internet addict? | Linguagem Virtual | Scoop.it

The average British web user apparently spends one in every 12 waking minutes online. Does that sound like rather a lot, or do you check Twitter before getting out of bed?
