The web as random acts of kindness – Another TED talk worth watching

I was scrolling through TED talks today when I stumbled on this hopeful talk by Harvard law professor Jonathan Zittrain.

In describing the underpinnings of the Internet, Zittrain imagines a society with fewer rules enabling more neighborly acts.

His talks bring to mind the extraordinarily peaceful 15 years of WaterFire Providence, which brings thousands and thousands of individuals out on a summer’s evening to experience this inspirational work of public art and community.

If you need a smile and your heart warmed, take the time to watch this video.
