An idea worth spreading
Collaborative creation and collaborative action - be it between individuals or groups - has the potential to solve many problems in the world today. Given the ease of connecting across the world today with internet, a lot of this is already happening. If I need specialized information that is not available on any website, I go to a discussion forum and post a query - and promptly I get a response which suits my need. Similarly, if I want to sell something I don't need, I advertise it online. And if nothing else works, post an update on facebook and some friend will connect me to someone who has the answer or solution.
The idea is how to take this to the next level? How to harness the tremendous latent thought power and energy towards solving each others problems? Wikipedia is one example. But possibly only about .1% of internet users actively contribute to it. Imagine what can happen if even 10% of net users become actively involved in a platform that is more versatile.
