Reading on a political blog, discussing why the “Occupy Wallstreet” will fail – the author makes this point:
It will fail because the protesters are still stuck in the paradigm of having to occupy territory when the battle should be fought on the Web with ideas.
And, as a point, he posted how an idea can accumulate such great random talent from all over the world for a beautiful purpose.
First, the TED video for the background…
Yes, the bad is getting worse.
But, wow, the good is getting greater.
We live in amazing times.
(ed: I changed the post a bit – it is the accumulation of the random talent that adds to the amazement – it was a bunch of unconnected, unknown people coming together to create the beauty)
