An idea worth spreading
Most of the problems of the world are a result of structures and process of the Information Age. Hierarchies don't scale well.
The underlying problem is that information is isolated, communities are opaque and deriving profit from information discourages the inevitable and necessary shift to transparency, access and a prevailing meritocracy which is the environment in which wisdom can be achieved.
Society has crowd created connectivity (internet), information (world wide web) and software (open source software communities). The community needs to create Wisdom (knowledge and action) in a person to person. We need accountability and transparency person to person.
