the ... century



from here, found here.

i like it a lot. my one thought, however:
if
the 20th century = mass production for mass consumption
factories, cars, televisions, and fridges


then not
the 21st century = mass innovation

i still think it's missing the point a little. innovation is the sideproduct.
the "cashification" and "monetization" capable aspect, if you will.

it is
the 21st century = mass creation for mass communication

people want to communicate and connect, and so share. not innovate; that's secondary.

i like your equation better. i also disagree with the statement that the internet creates more equality... socioeconomic stratification still determines who has access to the internet and who doesn't. not everyone can share their ideas.

but all in all an intriguing video. nice blog.
