Hello Ideas : collaborative economy ideas incubator

We're in the midst of the time in our planet's history when everyone gets networked together. HelloIdeas is one of millions of nodes on this network working, and hoping, for an upgraded society. We're a research and ideas incubator looking at where the web and society goes next. How do we make sure technology works for us, not the other way round? How do we get from here to the after-party?

"Humanity is sane, and can make use of its intelligence. We have to act as if this is true. That’s the whole story of the 21st century: Are we a sane civilization or not?"
— Kim Stanley Robinson
