Just imagine

“Imagine a world where everyone was constantly learning, a world where what you wondered was more interesting than what you knew, and curiosity counted for more than certain knowledge. Imagine a world where what you gave away was more valuable than what you held back, where joy was not a dirty word, where play was not forbidden after your eleventh birthday. Imagine a world in which the business of business was to imagine worlds people might actually want to live in someday. Imagine a world created by the people, for the people not perishing from the earth forever.
Yeah. Imagine that.”

(Maybe it’s because I’m a sunny, little optimist, but I love that quote from Christopher Locke from the Cluetrain Manifesto so much that I wanted it to stand on it’s own. But I must point you to the link I got it from, which is a must read piece by Manisha Verma, “On The Evolution Of Open Source” on 3Quarks. I’ve read through it quickly twice already and must do so more carefully again. I suggest you do too.)
