TEDxGlasgow - Joe Tree - Creating a Collective Human History

Human history is defined largely by the information our ancestors were able to create and store. But our record of the past is skewed by the powerful or privileged few who were capable of documenting the world around them. Joe Tree, founder and CEO of the popular photography site Blipfoto, argues that we are the first generation to record and share the smallest details of everday life on a massive scale, and the first with an opportunity to create a truly collective human history. But to secure our place in tomorrow's past, we need to think much more carefully about what we're doing today.More About Joe TreeJoe Tree is founder and CEO of the popular photography site Blipfoto. In 2004 Joe started a daily photo journal, and every day since he's taken and openly shared a single photograph. In isolation his journal is a unique record of one person's life, but tens of thousands more have joined in along the way. He's now at the centre of a unique and rapidly expanding worldwide community of ordinary people who share their lives through photos, one day at a time.In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
