using our superpowers for good
Time O'Reilly (tech editor and expo producer extrodinnaire) said recently on the O'Reilly Radar
"What good is collective intelligence if it doesn't make us any smarter?I am too often afraid of what I'll say or do wrong to really make a difference. What if none of us were afraid to operate at full capacity? What if we weren't concerned with what am I getting out of it and instead focused on what can I do about it?
In an era of looming scarcities, economic disruption, and the possibility of catastrophic ecological change, it's time for us all to wake up, to take our new "superpowers" seriously, and to use them to solve problems that really matter."
If we all are given different talents and capabilities, maybe it's time to start working as a team. Maybe it's time for me to stop wishing/complaining/whining about the current circumstances around me and start using my superpowers for good. I know they are in here somewhere . . .
