Sept 5th - Come over to SP for some fun with moi!

That's right >> come over to Soulpancake and let's get deep and wacky!

I want to hear your own personal mantra - I want you to tell me all about your best friend (uhm in 5 words only!) and let's talk human race - like why are we here - really?

What could be more fun during Shopping Week at school? I know it will keep me going!

The evolution of culture through social media

Do you ever think about this?

It is on my mind constantly these days as I see us moving in leaps and bounds. I wonder things like:

 - who will be left behind?
 - what can we do to help people move forward, catch up, or be involved?

And with the opening of social media, developing world information gaps are slowly closing. Take for example villages who can now provide classes to people via MOOC (Massive Open Online Courses) learning, with only a meeting space and a internet connection required!

It's funny because when I think of these developing world cultures that will be learning so much and moving ahead, I don't have the same questions as above. Because of the ways family and society are structured, I don't think many will be left behind, rather I think that the knowledge will be used for the betterment of the group. But that is my opinion.

I think in the first world we can work towards the betterment of the group, and we are in some ways, as we reach to implement new systems in health care etc., but is it enough? What else are we racing towards? Then I wonder:

 - who will be left behind while we're working on solutions and then trying to implement them?

I would love to hear what you think.

(Thank you Joyce for fuelling the flame for these thoughts with your recent fb post.)
