Texts are meant to be played. That might sound weird, but think about it. Texts can be daunting. Often we see a really long article and we really ask ourselves if we want to invest the time and read them.

Have you heard of HeroX yet? I want linear thinking solved.
The problem I want solved is isolation (we still live in an age of isolation) and linear thinking. I love Abundance (the book) ... but there are quite a few things that bother me about the forces that will supposedly lead to an age of Abundance. The biggest problem is isolation of everything and how highly we value competition. The big technology corporations want to lock us into their cloud. There is no competing effort that gives people control...

The Right Focus
Focus is important but it can also be a dangerous thing. Being obsessed with something means you do not look into some things that might be important. Everything is connected, so knowing a little about the context is always important. But there is also too ...

https://herox.com/challenge/42-open-source-entertainment-franchise/
Huge entertainment franchises like Pirates Of The Caribbean, Star Wars, The Avengers, Jurrasic Park, Firefly and Terminator have a huge emotional and financial appeal. There can be whole industries around them - and obviously there are, but they are not exactly open to Average Joes and the Plain Janes.
