6 billion others and what we have in common

Life does get hectic and time can get away from you. This happens with all of us. It's one of the many commonalities between us-- time. We tend to look at what keeps us apart, instead of what unites us and binds us together. A new project called 6 Billion Others helps us see on the broadest of scales, how closely we are linked. They have set quite a goal for themselves, amassing thousands, soon tens of thousands, of video interviews of people from all over the world.

We are much more alike than we are dissimilar. Take a look. Listen while standing in curiosity and you will hear people of all different walks of life, countries, colors, ages, talk about their own journeys. You will hear how they differ and come to know them better. And you will hear how much they are like each of us.

Hats off to this group. Take a look...gain some new knowledge and insight into our brothers and sisters. That is what our work as knowledge managers is all about.
