Us Now is a documentary film project "about the power of mass collaboration, the government and the internet" The New York Times describes it as a film which "paints a future in which every citizen is connected to the state as easily as to Facebook, choosing policies, questioning politicians, collaborating with neighbours." The project claims the founding principles of mass collaborative projects, including transparency, self-selection and open-participation are nearing mainstream social and political lives.

It's an hour long but really worth the watch. Originally posted on OpenIDEO here. Grab a cup of tea and be prepared to be inspired by the times we live in!

Hi Meena,

My tea has gone cold so I will have to finish this at a later date, but I wanted to thank you for posting this idea! This speaks a lot to ways in which tools are being used by people already! We just have to leverage that for social good! I like the idea of how Open IDEO fits into this as well!
