Thoughts of a Feather Flock Together

You've changed the way you think, and may have changed the way others think, but is your message getting out past that point?

Below is a snapshot of two different Birder conversational hubs. [Birders are those who keep an active count of the bird species they see.] Hardcore birders have friends all over the world and yet the conversational links show how they stick with their flock. (thanks eCairn)

One color represents the US Birder connections and the other UK Birder connections. You would think that the crowds would overlap more. 

It made me think about other silos-of-though that we operate in -- are we just talking to others just-like-us, or should we spread our wings and ideas further? It's something to consider for your next world-changing event.

wow, very cool visual that startlingly illustrates just how confined we can get. Hard for good ideas to spread far in a silo, isn't it?
