The most connected we've ever been. Yet...

The internet has made us the most connected we’ve ever been. Yet, the population of London alone increased by 100,000 in the year to June 2016. 

The internet has made us the most connected we’ve ever been. Yet, you simply “have” to be in Silicon Valley (insert your own local hub) if you want to build a start-up. 

The internet has made us the most connected we’ve ever been. Yet, we have a loneliness epidemic in the Western world. 

The internet has made us the most connected we’ve ever been. Yet, hundreds of millions of people still work in cubicles. 

The internet has made us the most connected we’ve ever been. Yet, I haven’t seen 95% of my Facebook friends face-to-face in the last ten years. 

The internet has made us the most connected we’ve ever been. Yet, I still don’t know the names of my neighbours. 

The internet has made us the most connected we’ve ever been. Yet, I haven’t tried actually connecting all that often. 

The internet has made us the most connected we’ve ever been. Yet, all we do is share cat videos and troll each other.

The internet has made us the most connected we’ve ever been. Let’s do something incredible with it.
