The Digital Stranger: Education, participation, social networking and creativity
Digital strangers are people we interact with, people we are inspired by, people we understand (even a little) about their views and their position in a specific network, but know very little about. We can still learn from and with them. We can create and share. We can innovate and solve problems. We can increase awareness and affect change. We can engage, entertain and provide comfort or inspiration.

Eight Dangers of Collaboration

Eight Dangers of Collaboration | The Digital Stranger: Education, participation, social networking and creativity | Scoop.it
Most of what is written about collaboration is positive. Even hip. Collaboration is championed enthusiastically by the Enterprise 2.0 experts, as well as leading thinkers like Don Tapscott, as the crucial approach for the 21st century.

Collaboration just likes everything.  Use it correctly, it helps; use it incorrectly, it hurts.

David Hain's curator insight, January 28, 2013 4:32 AM

Sound sense.  It's often portrayed as "four legs good, 2 legs bad". But the cost of poorly thought out collaboration is high and only breeds cynicsm against the best reasons for applying collaborative methods.  Also, collaboration takes more than one form and the method should be chosn carefully for the problem and context.

Love this Guy. Orphans vs. Empires: Andrew Slack [founder Harry Potter Alliance] at TEDxYouth@SanDiego

Andrew Slack shares how the universal story of the orphan versus the evil empire (think Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz, Superman, Luke Skywalker and, of course, Harry Potter) has the power to be a game changer in the story of humanity and how we see ourselves as human beings. Slack's "novel" approach to activism inspires us all to join forces, to use our powers for good and to know that every wall has a secret door just waiting to be found. Fantasy is not an escape from our world -- but an invitation to go deeper into our world. Slack passionately reveals that banding together, reaching out and reveling in our interconnectedness makes us not orphans, but siblings -- who sleep together as a family of heroes under one sky -- where we are home.

Andrew Slack is the co-founder and executive director of the Harry Potter Alliance (HPA). HPA fights the dark arts in the real world by using parallels from Harry Potter to do good - such as sending cargo planes to Haiti, building libraries across the world, and advocating for human rights, media reform and equality on LGBTQ, immigration and class.,...

Spreadable media is ispirational for the next tv. It's about spreading contents through media. It's about web 1.0 and 2.0. It's about retro culture. 

 

In this interesting interview what comes out is that storytelling and simplicity is a winner in a spreadable world.
