Do intellectual property protections run afoul with collaborative consumption?
Well, my thought was that IP rights create a protection over IP in a manner that does not allow us to pass on our 'used' items. For example, I can pass on a cd or dvd under the first sale doctrine (its why video game resale shops were popular for a bit) but the same would be difficult in the online world- both because of this hyper need to overprotect from piracy and because of technology that prevents the transfer. So, I was questioning if we should rethink IP Protections that do not allow me to pass on my online purchased items to firends- as long as I dont post things online for the world to download....... I just struggle with the fact that I do not own much of what I buy online- and what I do own I cannot pass on without being an online pirate....

When and why did we move so far away from paying for goods with cash?
I find this a very interesting and key tidbit to consider. Consider the impact of this- in the UK there is oftentimes few ATMs that give out 5 bills. Could the argument be made that because I draw out a 10, I will be less likely to spend it on a small item- and this in turn would mean that banks that dole out more 5's are actually helping the economy?

Misha Glenny: Hire the hackers!
Misha- first, thanks for this TED Talk. I am really sad at some of the comment below that seem to have missed the point 100%. I wonder if your talk isn’t a call for the world to reconsider the justice system and its use of prison. I know this goes beyond your basic premise- but couldn’t we also make the same argument for all 'troubled' or 'misguided' teenagers that are caught up early in the criminal justice system. I have always thought we lock up too many people- instead of helping them steer their intelligence into a more appropriate avenue. And this is another sad example of a much larger problem- the idea of criminals needing to be locked away from society. I however, do believe as we are not going to change the system as it currently is overnight- that these individuals are considered criminals under the current system and as such- the punishment is usually jail not jobs. But I agree, we certainly need to be doing more- but not just for the cyber-criminals in desperate situations, but for all kids who need more guidance.

When and why did we move so far away from paying for goods with cash?
I agree, people dont have cash to spend- but that is a sneeky bit of my point. Do you think people would spend less- and on those things they really needed- if they had to hand over a wad of cash in situtations that it was possible. We have always had a disconnect with paying via check or debit card- but maybe we would have a better idea of how much we really spend if we paid for those non big ticket items with cash. I went to the grocery store today and paid for cash- I had an amount to spend, and I had to take my time to find things within my price range. Would this appraoch help keep people from spending too much- or from just grabbing the first item they see, instead of really looking at the cost and thinking- do I really need this??? I certainly dont know the answer- but I do wonder if this isnt a little bit true. Debit cards are like the game of monopoly-- its all play money.

If you could do a TED talk, what would you talk about?
If I had the opportunity to give a TED talk I would speak about the poor state of US education. I would address two key issues- first, we need to return to teaching critical thinking skills to all students instead of teaching rote memorization or to the test. And second, and most importantly (maybe) I would speak about the need to begin to recognize various learning styles, without needing to label every variety. I found it incredibly discouraging that the educational system promoted (and still promotes) a style of learning that insists on the ability to sit still and be quiet, instead of allowing students to learn in the manner that they are best able to learn. As a student that needed to explore, be inquisitive and move around- I speak from experience that an educational system that values quiet, seated, and non-inquisitive students really doesn’t teach the skills necessary for the future. Consequently, my two topic areas merger into one- the educational system in the US needs to begin to teach critical thinking skills while giving teachers the support that allows them to recognize and support the various ways that each student learns.

How Do We Teach Children Compassion and Empathy?
I guess, I just hope that at an early age we can surround our young people with the right set of influencing individuals, who not only set a good standard but also teach critical thinking. While I do 100% agree that one exciting negative can destroy a lot of demonstrated moral integrity, I hope that part of teaching is to instill critical thinking. My hope, is that the combination of critical thinking and empathy will lead to thinkers that can examine the behaviors of corrupt community leaders in the context of the long term harm they cause to society.
