  • Mother’s Love; nature’s bounty; tomatoes don’t come with price tag. More than a 100 years since he penned those words, we’ve put price tags on thins that Oscar even in his Wildest dreams (or nightmares!) could not have seen coming. For instance, today your company for $10 can purchase the right to emit a metric ton of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. For $75 hundred dollars you can hire a human being to be a guinea pig in risky drug trials. And for a quarter of a million dollars you can buy the right to shoot and kill an endangered rhino in South Africa. So somehow we've managed to put a price tag on life, death, and almost everything in between.In a world everything has a price --- what happens to the priceless and how can technology contribute?

  • In May 1954, on an Oxford track, a guy named Roger Bannister shattered a 4-minute-mile world record, by running the mile in 3 minutes 59.4 seconds. That was headline news everywhere, dubbed ‘The Human Miracle’.  Two months later, in Finland, that "miracle mile" was again broken by Australian rival John Landy, who achieved a time of 3 minutes 56 seconds.  Stunning. The most remarkable part of that history is that over the next three years, 16 other runners broke this record!  What happened in 1954?  New shoes?  Steroids?  Nope.  Humanity just broke a collective mental barrier.  Once one person did it, all of a sudden everyone else thought it was possible.
  • That was the promise of social entrepreneurship; but we muddled the word. Here are two examples of people who got it. Who are the social first technopreneurs?
  • How to become internet famous for $68 – scrivenr name, $50 for 90K followers, $18 for a wordpress site, lightroom to mashup image.
  • Wikipedia: 100 million hours donated on Wikipedia with micro contributions, all voluntary. Clay Shirky: just 1% of the potential.
  • On Wikipedia, 100 million volunteer hours have been donated.
  • This is what social change giants did; but our challenge is to see how we leverage technology for this?
