At a time where we have realised the power of ideas to change the world, it is surprising how disinterested most of us are with real change. Even with our new found interconnectedness by way of the internet most of us still perform the same rituals.
The most viewed youtube videos are those of popstars and sneezing pandas, facebook the planets biggest online social space is used primarily for self promotion and a virtual farming game and most comment threads are rapidly filled with unverifiable baseless opinions of individuals who are more than happy to rant while hiding behind a pseudonym.
In spite of all this ideas have still flourished and if you are prepared to step away from the comfort zone of your standard social networks and your shopping bookmarks you can find a wealth of ideas which will profoundly change your perspective.
I am just sharing some of these ideas so take from them what you will, but if you like them don’t just stop there carry on down the rabbit hole google the speakers, find out more.
Happy Birthday Mars. Hopefully by the time you are in your teens some of these ideas would have started the paradigm shift.
