How flat?

Exactly how flat is it? The world.

Pretty flat.

And getting flatter.

The more we share the flatter it gets. The more we open up the flatter it gets.

Flat is good... mostly.

Software-innovation-flat is riveting. It does not matter where you are. APIs connect.

Open-source flat is a revolution. Nothing less.

Hardware-innovation-flat is happening. Kickstarter helps. The maker movement helps. 3D printers help. Shenzhen accelerates, but might matter less as local eco-systems pop up everywhere.

Social-capital-flat is empowering. Kiva.org removes barriers to capital, in Kenya, in New Orleans, in Cambodia... in places where not much is needed to change lives.

Starbucks-flat is convenient at times, but really just the yuppie version of McDonalds-flat. I like the local coffee shop... if they have good tea.

Democracy-flat seems slower. Consent of the Networked explains why.

Flat is mostly good. Unquestionably happening. Unquestionably powerful. Unquestionably subversive.

Just like in brick and mortar stores you can also find discount shopping online as like anything else you can find anything you want with only a few clicks of the mouse. While the brick-and-mortar is a plus for getting outdoors it can also be inconvenient and stressful.West Palm Beach car accident lawyer
