Empowering the Cognitive Surplus
The Cognitives vision is not just to build technology that empowers brands to publish their story online, but to provide a leading edge platform that provides brands with the ability to leverage the Cognitive Surplus of their customers, readers and industry thought leaders.
The Cognitives Surplus explores the concept that since the 1940s, people have found more constructive ways to spend their free time, rather than consumptive ones. The introduction of online tools has resulted in new forms of collaboration - enabling brands, organisations and businesses to lean on a wide net of skills, resources and interests to find new paths of opportunity.
Clay Shirky has been a powerful advocate of the Cognitives Surplus, and in the many way that it can be harnessed for personal, communal, public and civic purposes.
