Dorthea Nie, our collaborator from the future, released yet another video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v…..Gy6VyLbkZE

In it, she poses two more questions:

  1. Where can you go to find cutting-edge ideas that could lead to major change?
  2. How do you prefer to get new information?

We think these are important for us to think about in both the short and long term.

Inna Kouper sent us the following responses to these questions:

Where can you go to find cutting-edge ideas that could lead to major change?

I'd say start with yourself. Often we think that it's other people's
job to come up with ideas and offer us solutions. But each one of us
has ideas, we just don't have time to develop them. Believe in
yourself, turn your imagination on and start changing the world today
:) Some other places I like to check often: offline – MCPL (stacks and
bulletin boards), online - ted.comfreecycle.orglifehacker.com

How do you prefer to get new information?

I try to get information from as many sources as possible. Via email
I'm subscribed to many listservs of interest (related to language,
technology, culture, internet, etc.) I use google reader to subscribe
to blogs, news services, journals, podcasts, etc. My google buzz and
facebook feeds are other great sources of information. Twitter.
StumbleUpon is a way to get to things that I may not find otherwise.
And wikipedia, of course, when i need to learn about something i don't
know.

What about you? How would you answer these questions?

Hi again Dorthea!
In response to your questions:
1. Where can you go to find cutting-edge ideas that could lead to major change?

I am amazed at the wealth of information that's available online – we have access to more information than any other point in history (thus far) –  and I can only imagine that will continue on into the future. 

 

2. How do you prefer to get new information?

I am addicted to the Zite app on my iPad – it learns what I like to read and sends me new things that match my interests each day.  It saves a ton of time…but I can't help but wonder what all I'm missing out on but letting the app customize to my preferences… 

 

ciao!

-Jen
