Changes in the cognitive surplus are revolutionizing our world

I can't put into words how enormously important this 15-minute video is:

Excerpt: “All of Wikipedia...represents something like the accumulation of 100 million hours of human thought.”

Superb. And I'm hooked on about 8 TED Talks tabs open now.

Interesting. I wonder how music will become interactive.
