I just watched this video about the next Revolution we are experiencing as a society and culture. The last revolution was the Industrial Revolution, and the upcoming revolution has to do with interconnectivity of people and the power of the mind used during free time. Its a fascinating talk that really makes you think about the future and how things will be so much different for our children as they learn to interact and use their minds to contribute their knowledge to others for the good of all. I don't know if that makes sense.
The guy in the video talks about the man power or volunteer work force it takes to produce articles for Wikipedia, and talks about how this Revolution is occurring as people chose to use the internet rather than watch TV during their free time. The video is 15 minutes long, but good to watch if you have time.
