Making Ideas Spread
Alexis Ohanian Talks About the Internet in this Digital Humanitarian Keynote

By: Andrew Robertson (Star) Jun 27, 12

Co-Founder of Reddit Alexis Ohanian talks about how to make the world a better place in this digital humanitarian keynote. Today there is no shortage of individuals who want to improve the world, just as there is no shortage of things that need improving. With the Internet being a universally accessible technology it is the most fluid and perfect market place for ideas.

In regards to humanitarian endeavors the Internet has made the “Sally Fields network model” outdated and inefficient. Rather than being guilt-tripped into donating money, people can now take an active part in determining where their money goes and who benefits from it.

In order to exact a positive influence on people one must understand the medium and generation in order to make an impact. Interconnectedness makes it possible for donators and charity supporters to see exactly where their money is going, encouraging individuals to stay involved. For good ideas to take route it is necessary to ensure that they are Internet-ready. Think about how your idea can be spread, how it can be worth spreading and how it cannot be restrained.
