A different way of looking at journalism– idealistic but inspiring. The authors believe that the problem with journalism lies not in the lack of good, positive news alone, but rather failing to raise the attention to innovative technologies that could be to the benefit of humanity.

I stumbled across this video while aimlessly browsing the Internet. I thought it showed an interesting perspective on journalism. Although I’ve always struggled with the negative news journalism (especially broadcast) spews, I never considered the need for the media to provide solutions to these issues it makes public.
