Q: How many bloggers does it take to screw in a light bulb?

Rene Daalder, said @ SpaceCollective Project:

'The real answer to this timeworn question of course is one. It took just one Gandhi to set off a wave of enlightenment across the planet; and one maverick scientist by the name of Nikola Tesla to invent the electric age, prompting us to screw in a never ending supply of lightbulbs. On the other hand, the will of just one zealous despot, Adolf , almost succeeded in throwing us back into the dark ages.

It only takes one mutant cell to change the course of human evolution. And every time one internet user shares a good idea, it may exponentially reach the minds of two, four, or perhaps a million people who come across it on their non-linear path.

We owe the rapid rise of human civilization (and our ability to screw in a light bulb) to a simple evolutionary modification of our digital extremities known as the opposable thumb.

Now we have the mouse, which at this very moment puts you just one click away from playing a role in the future of everything.'

Go figure?!
