Cognitive Surplus visualized

I was listening to writer Clay Shirky talk about cognitive surplus – the idea of spare brainpower in the world’s collective mind just sitting there waiting, wanting, to be harnessed.

He had a stand-out statistic that snagged my mind. I thought I would visualise it.


Shocking proportion. Interestingly, when I sketched the diagram, my imagination had the scale way wrong.
