If you didn’t already know it about me, let me let the cat out of the bag. I am a techie geek! In the last 2 years I have become an incredible Web 2.0/Social Media/Social Learning junkie. I have taken it upon myself to evangelize the benefits (while still being cognizant of the potential risks) of all of the amazing technologies available to us. [Warning, I am certain many people will disagree with the next statement!] By far the most valuable benefit we have received as a result of social media is that we are now a far more connected, communicating society than at any other time in our world’s history. I want to emphasize that I just used the term ‘world.’ The Web 2.0/social media revolution has taken us well beyond any geographic or geo-political boundaries that were previously created. We are finally becoming a global community of human beings, sharing our stories and our lives with one another.
This is an amazing video that highlights just how far we have come. If you have any doubts about the enormity of the revolution, just watch…and learn!
