Us Now Film Screening


I attended a film screening of “Us Now” in London on 10 Dec 08. UsNow is a documentary film project about the power of mass collaboration, government and the internet. directed by Ivo Gormley, the film takes a look at how the web is changing the ways we organize ourselves. using examples such as 35,000 fans running ebbsleet united football club online and the bank zopa, where everyone is the bank manager, ‘Us Now’ explores whether these online participatory networks could deepen our democracy and even transform the way that countries are governed.

This movie captures the film screening event – it is not the documentary. To learn more about the UsNow documentary go to: http://www.usnowfilm.com.

The movie was thought provoking, inspiring, and timely.  For good reasons, the film maker was unable to capture stories from many countries and cities and most of the people speaking in the film are from the UK.  The film does a good job of showing the potential of Web 2.0 and mass collaboration.  I walked out with many new ideas and renewed energy.  I created this blog (my first one) after seeing the movie.  That says a lot!
