Freedoms Realized

Today is Remembrance Day and it is given due respect around the world with presentations, ceremonies and personal sharing of those who made the ultimate sacrifice for us to enjoy our lives today.

Sadly, conflict continues and probably always will but the only way for us to get our minds around it all is to cherish each other's ideas and innovation in business, medicine, science, technology and relationships.

Our lives are busy with workflow and corporate climbing, deadlines and responsibilities, making ends meet and realizing our dreams.

The explosion of the social web has given us access to each other in a way no one could have predicted. There are almost two billion of us connecting online.

They gave us our freedom.

When we talk about the freedoms, we often refer to the ability to realize dreams and have a safe place to live, clean water and our ability to create our own path.

We must remember everyone who put their lives in harm's way every day.

So today, I thought I’d share a video from TED curator Chris Anderson who discusses the rise of the web which is driving a phenomenon he calls Crowd Accelerated Innovation. This is about much more than technology.

This is about our visceral desire to connect, share and advance our knowledge. It is a freedom we need to cherish and nurture.
