A TED Talk A Day, Day 61: Day 2 of the Ze Frank trilogy. Again I’m amazed and how his projects have brought people together in a funny yet poignant way.

  1. The Internet allows him to connect with people through his projects.
  2. There are moments in our lives when we are living our lives in the networks — moments where we stare at our screens and smile.
  3. Connecting is to feel and be felt. But it isn’t easy.
  4. Connection is happening in both virtual spaces, not just physical ones, and we have to figure out how to do it.
  5. Likes buttons are primitive! Like something we do in third grade.
  6. Many of his projects take submitted content and pass them on to professionals or other users to remix, with often touching results.
  7. Somehow his projects all turn pain and negativity into something more human, and more positive.

Suggested action step: I’m not quite sure what, but if anything these Ze Frank talks have gotten me to think about how we can use the Internet to bring people together in a better way.
