On the Brink - The past, present and future of the networked society.
Just finished watching this wicked mini-documentary called ‘On The Brink’ which discusses the past, present and future of the networked society with a mix of people including David Rowan, chief editor of Wired UK; Caterina Fake, founder of Flickr; and Eric Wahlforss, the co-founder of Soundcloud.
It’s a really interesting, thought provoking film. David Rowan made some interesting points about the future of creativity as a result of the new, connected society.
“It provides borderless creativity. Borderless entrepreneurship. A more democratic feel, where it’s not only the big companies that can do things. But that does not mean that every idea is a good idea, or that everyone will succeed, or even that it’s easy to become successful. It’s no easier to become Lady Gaga today than it was 20 years ago. But just the fact that people can try is something that I like a lot…”
Anyways, check it out. It only goes for 20 minutes. Short but sweet.
