Networked Society 'On the Brink' - Emerging Opportunities Enabled by Technology [Video]

I rescooped this from one of my other topics because I thought it might be of interest to you. What these people are talking about effects all of us personally and professionally.

****On The Brink is a discussion the past, present and future of connectivity with a mix of people including David Rowan, chief editor of Wired UK; Caterina Fake, founder of Flickr; and Eric Wahlforss, the co-founder of Soundcloud.

**Each of the interviewees discusses the emerging opportunities being enabled by technology as we enter the Networked Society.

**Concepts such as borderless opportunities and creativity, new open business models, and today's 'dumb society' are brought up and discussed.

Hi Oliver, Pretty amazing stuff right? It really gets one thinking about at all the possibilities, innovation and things that haven't even been created yet. Exciting times to say the least:-)

"Connected" A Film: Explores How Social Media via the Web Has Changed Our lives

"Connected" A Film: Explores How Social Media via the Web Has Changed Our lives | Curation, Social Business and Beyond |

This post was written by Susan Karlin for Fast Company

This is an excellent example of curation in the form of a brilliant film by Tiffany Shlain.

Great article about this film in Fast Company - You should not miss it, it's amazing.


Have you ever faked a restroom trip to check your email? Slept with your laptop? Or become so overwhelmed that you just unplugged from it all?

In this funny, eye-opening, and inspiring film, director Tiffany Shlain takes audiences on an exhilarating rollercoaster ride to discover what it means to be connected in the 21st century.

****Connected is a tapestry of specially filmed and archival footage, home movies, and animation that juxtaposes mankind's increased shared experience against her own place in the world.

****Jumping between overarching historical context (narrated by Peter Coyote) and autobiographical transformation (narrated by Shlain), Shlain explores how increased connectivity via the Internet and social media has both improved and impeded our lives, and the planet as a whole.

****She asks how we can use connectivity to its advantage in solving problems related to the environment, consumption, population growth, human rights, the global economy, and interpersonal relationships.

****"It feels like we're at the beginning," she says. "Collaborative tools are going to help us come together in new ways, with people participating. There's a book called The Rational Optimist, that talks about how, throughout history, most innovation has taken place in cities, where people with different perspectives live close together.

Similarly, the Internet has provided a framework for people around the world to share ideas in new ways."
