About TEDGlobal 2012:
The the inspiration for the theme of TEDGlobal 2012 is Radical Openness. As the world becomes ever more interconnected, the ways we relate, the means by which we learn about one another and develop mutual understanding, and the rules about what we hide and what we share are changing. The world is becoming radically open, manifesting itself in open borders, open culture, open-source, open data, open science, open minds, open worlds that breed transparency, authenticity, creativity and collaboration. And also, the loss of privacy — an openness that carries its own set of perils and promises. All bets are off as to what openness and collaboration in an ultra-connected world will mean for human potential. Traditional top-down models of organization no longer reflect reality. Social capital and influence are becoming stronger currencies than hierarchy and formal power. We now have new, collaborative ways of creating meaning, and we’re making changes at breakneck speed. Only one thing appears certain: secrecy is no longer bankable. Impact is. The future will be built on great ideas, and for that, great ideas need to circulate freely, broadly and openly.
