How Web Video Encourages Innovation
Chris Anderon discusses how online video has done more than just entertain - it has tapped into the cognitive surplus, facilitated Global sharing and inspired innovation.
A recent piece (and TED Talk) by Chris Anderson at Huffington Post discussed what many may have observed, but not necessarily yet articulated: online video, beyond its frequent application to humor, satire and pure entertainment, is also spurring innovation and sharing across disciplines and fields. By tapping into the collective, frequently-cited notion of cognitive surplus, online video is allowing the work product and ideas of people across the globe to be shared digitally. This innovation – and collaboration – is evident in topics and fields ranging from science, to soccer training to Korean cooking.
