I think 99% of the humans aren't aware what's happening to us right now. To give you some brief insight's check this links out:
- Thomas Friedman's MIT video webcast about his book: "The World is Flat"
- Paul Graham's "What bussiness can learn from open source" or get his audio presentation (check for the Paul Graham link);
- Jonas Salk's video interview on "Man Evolving". This dude knew it all in 1985!
