Elon Musk has clinched a deal to buy Twitter for $US44 billion (A$61 billion).
"Free speech is the bedrock of a functioning democracy, and Twitter is the digital town square where matters vital to the future of humanity are debated,” Elon Musk said.
IdeaSpies is contributing to a book about an ideas- informed society, edited by Professor Chris Brown and Professor Graham Handscomb. It will talk about why we need an ideas-informed society and how to make it happen. "Democratic societies thrive when citizens actively and critically engage with new ideas, developments and claims to truth" they said.
I saw this book in the Laugh and Learn toy shop in Randwick Sydney last week and love it. The book perfectly describes my feelings in developing IdeaSpies.
"What do you do with an idea? Especially when it’s different or daring or just a little wild.
This is a story for anyone, at any age, who’s ever had an idea that seemed a little too big, too odd, too difficult”.
The message is clear-welcome and nurture ideas with patience and persistence, no matter how big or small, no matter how unique or popular, and they may grow to change the world.
