Whoever belittles another lacks sense, but an intelligent person remains silent.*
As automation increases, people hungry for more personal and authentic experiences begin to put a premium on advice, services, and interaction involving actual humans. […] Humans stubbornly seem to prefer other humans.**
Menneskebiblioteket = Danish for “human library” – an illustration for “human mode..” – another of Rohit Bhargava’s trends for 2018.
I like this idea of checking out real people from a Menneskebiblioteket for a half-hour conversation because it connects with #libraryofawesome, a concept I and a number of others play with from time to time.
What if it were possible to walk off the street into such a library and ask a “librarian” (though we thought they should be called “wizards”) what recommendations are possible for doing something different with their lives. The wizard would find the resources, including people, to help the person change the direction of their lives.
It’s about life becoming more human-intensive rather than technology-intensive but in a more savvy way.
Every day we can help one another upgrade our lives.
