What we're learning from online education | Society 2.0 | Scoop.it
Daphne Koller is enticing top universities to put their most intriguing courses online for free -- not just as a service, but as a way to research how people learn.

Want to innovate? Become a "now-ist"

Want to innovate? Become a "now-ist" | Society 2.0 | Scoop.it
“Remember before the internet?” asks Joi Ito. “Remember when people used to try to predict the future?” In this engaging talk, the head of the MIT Media Lab skips the future predictions and instead shares a new approach to creating in the moment: building quickly and improving constantly, without waiting for permission or for proof that you have the right idea. This kind of bottom-up innovation is seen in the most fascinating, futuristic projects emerging today, and it starts, he says, with being open and alert to what’s going on around you right now. Don’t be a futurist, he suggests: be a now-ist.

Hackers: the Internet's immune system

Hackers: the Internet's immune system | Society 2.0 | Scoop.it
The beauty of hackers, says cybersecurity expert Keren Elazari, is that they force us to evolve and improve. Yes, some hackers are bad guys, but many are working to fight government corruption and advocate for our rights. By exposing vulnerabilities, they push the Internet to become stronger and healthier, wielding their power to create a better world.
Damiens Robert's insight:

I find it very interesting to compare hackers to an immune system ! It makes you think about the internet and its actual role/place in society. Also, it highlights the critical importance of information.
