Building the #Knowosphere

April 27, 2012

In a talk, “Building the #Knowosphere: How new ways to share and shape ideas can help build durable progress on a finite planet” on Earth Day 2012 at MIT, New York Times Dot Earth blogger Andrew Revkin suggests how to use the Web and other emerging communication tools and networks to make the world a better place

The notion of Knowosphere has roots in the early 20th century, and even as far back as Darwin.

He also suggests reading Too Big To Know. The author, David Weinberger, a senior researcher at Harvard’s Berkman Center for the Internet and Society, says our task, in an age of networked intelligence is to learn how to build “smart rooms” in a talk.
