We’re (Really) Changing the World

The Internet allows people to work together on a scale never seen before. A few projects take advantage of this and allow people to collaborate on content that benefits humanity. Projects such as Wikipedia, OpenStreetMap and Zooniverse contribute to creation of a diverse body of knowledge such as a multi-language encyclopedia, detailed geographic data, discovery of new planets, and historic climate change information.

As these project grow we continue to see them be used in ways that creators could have never imagined. In this panel we’ll discuss why these projects work and if there are things that could be done to make them work even better. We’ll also show some of the new developments in these projects.
