How are we shaping our brains? How do we think about how we think? The internet might be a good framework with which to understand this, but it is in its infancy compared to a child's brain. Consider this: If webpages were neurons the internet has a trillion; a child's brain has a hundred billion. But if hyperlinks were synapses the internet has a hundred trillion and a child's brain has a quadrillion! Learn more about the vast potential of the human mind in this eye-opening...and charming...video from Let It Ripple: Mobile Films for Global Change.
