Bio: I guess good, and I sent my first email in 1985

Area of Expertise: Advocate/Voice of the People

Topic: Community/Culture

Headline: Virtualized Socials Go Public - A Chic Clique Culture

Nutshell: Cultural bastions (country clubs, private schools...) enabled by wealth, hubris, dogma and technology are socially crippled with membership declining for decades. Technology innovation, which replaced information and entertainment media giants of the early 21st century are maturing into far more inclusive pluralist late 21st century commons.

Vision: Virtualized social tools (like Twitter, Voice/View Vitter...) are common enablers. Enablers breach social contact complexity and inhibitions and drive public demand internationally for small safe, clean, shared and scheduled or rented collaborative community commons/parks for meet-ups, mash-ups, act-ups....
The chic clique cultural bastions (country clubs, private schools...) enabled by wealth, hubris, dogma and technology are socially crippled with membership declining for decades. Technology innovation, which replaced information and entertainment media giants of the early 21st century are maturing into far more inclusive pluralist late 21st century commons. More folks using social enablers recognize that information- and education-limited members are dogma-afflicted people that never reason effectively.
Personal, enabled social participation in public domain commons/parks do obviously build strong cultures, education, citizens, economies... Communities.
An old dogma-cliché, "Reality is self-induced hallucination," used by individuals at private functions/parties is surprisingly self-descriptive and ironic.
