Al Gore electrifies Web 2.0 Summit

[ Music ] ^M00:00:05 >> Great. Thank you very much. Thank you very much. Wow, that's an unexpected welcome. Really, thank you. Thank you very much. I appreciate that. Some week. [ Laughter ] >> Some week. [ cheering ] >> Each of you could probably share personal stories about what got you the most, emotionally. I'm going to resist the temptation, because I have a long list. Really. It really was overwhelming. And I know you've had some discussion here already about the meaning of it all in connection -- how it relates to this gathering. And couldn't have happened without the world wide web, without the Internet. And the fund raising extension was only part of it. The new possibilities in -- on the web -- have revolutionized almost every aspect of running for president. And the -- the electrifying redemption of America's revolutionary declaration that all human beings are created equal would not have been possible. [ Applause ] >> Would not have been possible without the additional empowerment of individuals to use knowledge as a source of power that has come with the Internet. When people are displaying interactivity or user generated content or social networking or whatever, that's kind of the gee, whiz stuff. I'm not trying to diminish that at all. But I am saying that our challenge really, those of us who are excited about the speedier development of the potential that we have here, we need to move past that as quickly as possible to a time where all of those features are just taken for granted, and are just like the water the fish doesn't know its swimming in. And how do we get there. And I think that the incredible explosion of new ways of collaborating, securing information, if you want to talk about that, of introducing new levels of creativity and quality into everything -- I think that web 2.0 has to have a purpose. We have to have a purpose. The purpose I would urge all of you as many of you are willing to take it up is to bring about a higher level of consciousness about hour relationship to this planet and the immanent danger and opportunity that we face because of the radical transformation of the relationship between human beings and the Earth. We have everything that we need to save it, and in the process create millions of new jobs, reduce our national security exposure to a sudden cut-off of oil, and solve the climate crisis. But just as Barack Obama's election would have been impossible without the new dialogue and new ways of interacting on the web, the only way this is going to be solved is by addressing the democracy crisis, and we -- the country hit a great blow for victory this week. But we have to take this and raise it in the awareness of everyone -- and the solutions. Anyway, that's what I wanted to say. I'm looking forward to the interactions, and thank you very much for having me here.
