From the Ted Talk by Jeremy Heimans: What new power looks like

Unscramble the Blue Letters

Finally, think about new power being more than just an entity that scales things that make us have sgltlhiy better consumer experiences. My call to action for new power is to not be an ilnsad. We have major structural problems in the world today that could benefit enormously from the kinds of mass participation and peer coordination that these new power prayles know so well how to generate. And we badly need them to turn their energies and their power to big, what ecnmotsois might call public goods problems, that are often beyond metraks where irtvesons can easily be found. And I think if we can do that, we might be able to fundamentally change not only human beings' sense of their own agency and power — because I think that's the most wnerdfoul thing about new pweor, is that pepole feel more powerful — but we might also be able to change the way we relate to each other and the way we relate to authority and institutions. And to me, that's absolutely worth trying for. Thank you very much. (Applause)

Original Text

Finally, think about new power being more than just an entity that scales things that make us have slightly better consumer experiences. My call to action for new power is to not be an island. We have major structural problems in the world today that could benefit enormously from the kinds of mass participation and peer coordination that these new power players know so well how to generate. And we badly need them to turn their energies and their power to big, what economists might call public goods problems, that are often beyond markets where investors can easily be found. And I think if we can do that, we might be able to fundamentally change not only human beings' sense of their own agency and power — because I think that's the most wonderful thing about new power, is that people feel more powerful — but we might also be able to change the way we relate to each other and the way we relate to authority and institutions. And to me, that's absolutely worth trying for. Thank you very much. (Applause)
