We need to focus on what can be, what will be not WHAT IS.

A thought becomes an idea or dream, becomes a meme (collective idea, or collective mind virus) it spreads following small world math 6 degrees through a population. Poverty is a Mind Virus a meme, a consciousness and a way of life.
Any marketer worth his salt knows that 80% or so of the population react to a pain versus 20% being proactive. This means 80% of people want to loose weight versus 20% getting in shape. This means 80% of people want to Get out of debt now, versus 20% of people wanting to invest for the future.

Well I am here to say, we can stop the pain. We can get out of debt now, and we can solve the problems facing us today. Innovation, that spark is the only way. Not the government, not an industry, that spark starts with us, right here and right now.

  21. 21. The Internet demands that we notice. It illuminates that which we least want to see. It shows many of our youth struggling and hurting and crying out for help. Of course, the Internet does not do this by itself. It does it because we’re looking. But we’re not seeing. We’re giving agency to the Internet so that we can blame it for what it reveals, rather than forcing ourselves to contend with what we see. At the end of the day, the Internet is not the issue. The issue is us. Citation: boyd, danah and Alice Marwick (2009). “The Conundrum of Visibility.” Kevin Leverseekevin@startupdragons.com
