Cheers to London 7

Posted by josh Fri, 08 Jul 2005 16:56:00 GMT

We are heartened by the stories we are reading of 43 Things users in London. The interweb is amazing for bringing us closer together, where we can cheer folks on across the big pond, and share the photos together on Flickr.

We spent yesterday arguing in our office about how to make the world a better place, while our world was reminding us it needs us all to share our ideas.

Sure, it is naive to think that 43 Things, Flickr, Wikipedia and all the community driven sites can change the world by helping us better understand each other and share experiences. But perhaps it is not naive to think our world needs exactly this sort of naiveté.

    In order to get deeper you need to raise discussions regarding various aspects of the subjects including its pros and cons.<br /> <br /> No Download Casino

    It is important to notice that not too many people take non-popular sides of the discussion. Lets think how to encourage a broader view of the subject.<br /> <br /> Palace of Chance

    I just got directed to this site.<br /> Interesting site. But I am having<br /> hard time finding anything more<br /> than one line “stories” and aggregation of photos from flickr.<br /> <br /> I was hoping to see more personal<br /> accounts and photos from the actual<br /> travelers.
