Doc Jenkins' TEDxNYED Talk

Doc Jenkins recently spoke at TEDxNYED about participatory culture and how that has an impact on people's social activism. He starts with a story about a kid named Pete, who's able to interact as a peer with others much older than himself because of the web anonymity he assumes outside of his "formal" duties as a student. Much like I was talking about yesterday, this loose-knit group is then able to recognize each other for their individual abilities, regardless of social and cultural backgrounds and formal training and whathaveyou, and collectively effect social change.

Here's the full talk...

Heh. Brilliant analogy there, I thought, especially for the comic fanboy. One of the reasons I follow Doc Jenkins' work.
