Do Great Things: Your Role in the Human Project
We have greater capacity to change the world today than kings and presidents of 50 years ago. Technologists have astonishing leverage to tackle the biggest problems and take on bold missions. And, facing severe threats to our long-term survival, it's essential we use our gifts to foster happiness and alleviate suffering -- for us and our fellow beings.
This talk describes the opportunity to come together to create unprecedented global human thriving and a vision for a World-Wide Collaboration in which humanity acts coherently and with purpose (and even Love), each contributing our unique gifts to the unified Project of building our future.
Justin will explore how a radical shift in consciousness from Me to We redefines our understanding of everything from entrepreneurship to capitalism to Facebook -- and reveals our opportunity to consciously co-design the evolution of humanity together.
