This, from Sunday's New York Times Magazine:
On the human network, people everywhere are experiencing a new kind of day. Encyclopedias update themselves every minute. Movies appear wherever there's a screen handy. And a phone can double as a train ticket or a lift ticket. Welcome to a place where wikis, collaborative applications and social networks are making us smarter, better and faster. Welcome to a network where anything is possible. Because we're more powerful than we could ever be apart.

I love it. I love it because it is a campaign to the masses which will educate, create curiosity, and spread the right message...to those outside the early adopter/Web 2.0/social media/Silicon Valley-centric crowd. And, meeting after meeting with major corporations recently have told me one thing, if nothing else: this education is sorely needed, and desperately (yet cautiously) sought.
Go, Cisco. Great blogging, too.
