Wake Up Sydney!

What is Wake Up Sydney about? In their own words: “Wake Up Sydney! is part of the largest movement the world has ever seen. Millions of people, just like you, are waking up to a bright new way of thinking, a brilliant new way of being. It is a profound revolution in human consciousness. It is the coming world. This is a defining moment in history, and in each of our lives: an opportunity, and a calling, to be part of an extraordinary movement toward a life-sustaining global community.”

Simply put, it is a Social Networking group. Social networking as a form of crowdsourcing.

To illustrate, I will be using a lot of words that you may never have heard of. New, because there is no precedent for what is happening so people are thinking up new terms as well as clutching at old straws. Terms like ‘social networking’ and ‘crowdsourcing’ maybe recent, but others, like: mass collaboration, collective intelligence as well as, tribes, swarms, hives, are not so.

Many more come to mind, but when I stop and think, they all mean the same: Coming together to leverage the power of the crowd united by common motives, goals, aims. For those of you who understand ‘geek talk’, something akin to Bit Torrent protocol, except using people.

Now is the time for the tribes of Sydney to gather, collaborate, be entertained and accelerate this revolution toward a more kind, conscious and sustainable world.”
