One in every nine people on earth is a Facebook user and Twitter manages an average of 190 million tweets per day. If you’re not communicating with your customers via social channels as well as through email, you’re not reaching your audience where it lives,works and plays.
Berners Lee, the originator of the world wide web said that "the web is more of a social creation than a technical one, I designed it for social effect - to help people work together and not as a technical toy. The ultimate goal of the web for me is to support and improve our web like existence in the world. While businesses, governments and other social bodies often wish to control the web to further each of their interests, they are the background to the web, as far as I am concerned not the foreground..........the web university leads to a thriving richness of diversity."
A Stanford Professor quit his job. But he doesn't plan to go to another prestigious university. Nope. He, like others has discovered the power of teaching online; in his case, he reached 160,000 students in a single online course on artificial intelligence. This is more than a story of online learning or mass dissemination. It proves a point: What once required a badge and a title within a centralized organization no longer does.

Most modern institution promote mass education, one sze fits all, an international curriculum that remain eurocentric. However; the cyber culture is here to change that and it bears similarity to the early adoption of letters that broke free from the religious medieval universities.
Steve Jobs statement on intelligent ideas "Creativity is just connecting things. When you ask creative people how they did something, they feel a little guilty because they didn't really do it;they just saw something. It seemed obvious to them after a while. That's because they were able to connect experiences they've had and synthesize new things."
