Connecting People With Wisdom

Sometimes questions can be even more inspiring than ideas. A great example comes from the New Scientist, which basically asks, how do we prevent old people becoming a cost, and make them a source of social income?

Or to put it another way, and partly answer the question in the process, how can we help connect people with wisdom?

What a great way of thinking about the ageing society: as an opportunity, not a problem. And an opportunity which dovetails nicely with the massively accelerating ways we have for sharing pretty much anything: photos, information, recommendations…

…wisdom.
