I have been wondering around for some time about some of the reasons of why some… not very ethical individuals are able to use certain technology tools highly efficiently, but others with less harmful intentions cannot match the same skill level. A widely known example of this has been the use of radical groups of Facebook, YouTube or Twitter. Although naive, it is not strange to quickly think: ‘well, if some bad guys can do it, why not the good guys as well’.
The origins of ideas, and how it is possible for them to spread around, is a topic that I think is probably more interesting that many people may think. At first sight, one may think that ideas just spread by people talking about it and that they grow if they find enough people that find the idea compelling. not differently as how a social network works, the more nodes it has (or people) the more value it is find inside.
