+Ron Garan Just wanted to mention this article from yesterday and how it reminded me of some lessons and examples you described in the OP: 
http://www.wired.com/2015/03/google-builds-new-tablet-fight-ebola/

You may be interested in archiving it as an example of ad hoc non-traditional (i.e., not top-down hierarchical structure) collaboration where ideas came from multiple industries and volunteers with unique perspectives to tackle one aspect of an immense problem (in this case, IT infrastructure and medical record keeping for the latest Ebola outbreak).

From our friends at +SPACE.com: "This Astronaut's 'Orbital Perspective' Could Change The World"  [Video]

 http://dlvr.it/8wjdmw 
NASA's Ron Garan spent over 177 days in space, looking down on the planet in his spare moments. This 'life-changing' experience made him rethink his view of our interconnected world. He shares how he developed this perspective with Space.com's @TariqJMalik in support of his new book "Orbital Perspective". (Available on Amazon)

It was thrust upon you Ron. :)
How could a man remain silent after witnessing that?
We are the same family, in the same house.
A lesson that eludes us scratching around here on the ground.

Your comment at landing in Kazakhstan - "I am home" brought the change you experienced clear to me. I will never forget it.

+Michael Flinchbaugh i agree, we can not ignore social media, but few months ago some kid who was playing some computer game (computer games are part of social media) asked another to meet with him and stabbed him 17 times, killing him ofcourse.
In the last months is a huge number  of teens (girls) to whom judges took the passport away because they want to go to serve isis.  They ware lured by others like them, looking very happy in pictures ... and all that in social media...
We can not ignore social media indeed, and this (from the article) was done properly... but what about after? These kids have to be educated regarding the dangers in social media.

I usually say "You don't have to be in orbit to have an orbital perspective" I now realize I'm wrong - you do have to be in orbit.  It's a good thing we are all in orbit around the Sun

Story
Tagline
I think we live on a pretty cool planet (and by "cool" - I mean awesome)
Introduction
Recently returned to Earth from 5 1/2 months onboard the International Space Station. I want to use Google+ to share the experience of living and working in space with as many people as possible. The "orbital perspective" has inspired me to help make the world a better place. I hope that by sharing this perspective of our Fragile Oasis, you will also be inspired.
