Two dogs share the same fleas.
It's just another way of saying we are the sum average of the people who hang out with. (That explains the food on my shirt. It's my 4 yr old's fault.)
The flea thing work both ways. So if my friends are smart, worldly and fun to be around, some of that goodness will eventually rub off on me.
The key is to choose one's friends wisely...
Imagine a 24/7 version of SXSW. Maybe there's a single virtual mic and presenters around the world submit topics. Users upvote the more interesting ones. The event is scheduled and held live. Since time zones may get in the way, the presentation is recorded and available for playback.
The content can be curated over time and organized into tracks for around-the-clock learning and discovery. Free.
Can someone build it, please?
