Al Gore: “Web 2.0 has to have a purpose”

“The purpose, I would urge all of you — as many of you as are willing to take it up — is to bring about a higher level of consciousness about our planet and the imminent danger and opportunity we face because of the radical transformation in the relationship between human beings and the Earth,” Mr. Gore said Friday evening at the Web 2.0 Summit in San Francisco.

  1. Has anyone heard of the Open Sustainability network? You can find information at http://www.appropedia.org/Open_Sustainability_Network. It is supposed to be a Web 2.0 resource to bring together social entrepreneurship, service learning and education, etc. Seems sort of pertinent?
    Also check out the article http://nciia.org/conf08/assets/pub/pearce.pdf by Pearce et Al, called “Leveraging Information Technology, Social Entrepreneurship, and Global Collaboration for Just Sustainable Development”
