If you want to know 'Why democracy matters', or 'Who controls the world', or 'What is the self-healing asphalt made of', in other words, if you want to be aware of all the innovations developed by human mind, so you are welcome to the one of the 'Ideas' communities that have become more and more popular for the last recent years. Just consider a pair of examples:
„Ideas Worth Spreading“ is in particular the motto of TED — an organization of world conferences, where the most amazing people with innovative thinking perform. The little app 'TED' from the Android or iPhone markets will allow you to focus on the most interesting content and keep track of all new performances.
Another example: Google hosted a new project last week — 2013 Solve for X event, which gathers proposals of scientists and innovators aimed to resolve the global world problems. They call every idea a 'moonshot'(huge problem, breakthrough technology, proposed radical solution) — something that is placed between the 'audacious projects and pure science fiction'.
There is no app related to this web site yet, but we hope that it will be at our disposal in the foreseeable future.
Anyway, I wish you happy watching and new discoveries with these two wonderful web resources!
