Serendipitious Findability

Serendipitious Findability, aka, Chance Meetings.
What happens when we decide to live our lives in public, via Facebook, Twitter, etc., as defined by Micah Sifry, co-founder and editor of the Personal Democracy Forum "Chance meetings between people, facts, and people and facts."

Micah spoke last night at a wonderful new program called The Little Idea. In his short, 10 minute talk, he noted that "information isn't power: disproportionate access to information is power."

And on the topic of science and communication, Micah continued, "Geeks are taking over the earth. We feed information to them because they feed information to us."
