Imagine Innovation

In one of the recent TED Talks, Hans Rosling said something around which a rally is forming.

The seemingly impossible is possible.
(Rosling, 2007)

He was referring to seemingly insurmountable problems in Africa. However, the quote applies to the Web2.0 education struggle occurring now all over the globe.
As I listen to a victory recording by two interns from Europe, this idea becomes even more true. I am so proud of both of them! They speak German (of which I only know a little) and they both have made the seemingly impossible possible. They have successfully recorded both sides of a telephone call. My reaction is summed up here:

Hamster Dance

Our work is to do the same in our fields. To make the apparently insurmountable easy and accessible. How will we get there from here? Where is our roadmap? Maybe there are no roads...
