A Declaration of Interdependence


A just got an email from Tiffany Schlain, who had just seen my post on how hyper-connectivity is literally bringing the networks to life. I know of Tiffany as the Founder of the very influential Webby Awards. What I didn’t know is that she is also a filmmaker. Tiffany pointed me to the film she’s currently working on: Connected: A Declaration of Interdependence. The awesome trailer is below – well worth watching. It simply poses the question we are all facing.

Also here is the commencement address Tiffany gave at UC Berkeley, which tells her inspiring story, including the story of Connected, how we need to engage with our intensely interdependent world, and the how the global brain is coming to life (from around 13:45).
