“While every instinct is telling us to engage and participate in this new era of collaboration - for most, it can feel vulnerable, seem unsafe and project uncertainty. When I came across Alfred and Katja's trailer via twitter, I realized the documentary revealed a path of hope and unprecedented opportunity for those who choose to collaborate. So, we'll be showing the trailer at the very beginning of the Health 2.0 India conference in Bangalore, knowing it will be a catalyst for a global community of health innovators who believe there is much we can learn from each other.” — James Mathews, Chairman - Health 2.0 India
"This documentary explores the edge of what's possible with collaboration. I truly believe people will look back at this time as the Age of Collaboration. This is the first documentary tackling this subject. Please support this important film" — Tiffany Shlain, Filmmaker and founder of the Webby Awards
Collaboration lies at the heart of many discoveries and inventions. The Internet has become an increasingly useful tool that facilitates the discovery of people with common interests and a medium through which collaboration can be executed. This documentary illustrates in a powerful way the core importance of collaborative work in a complex world. — Vint Cerf, Father of the Internet
"By sheer coincidence, I met Alfred while I was reading "What Computers Still Can't Do"--written by Hubert Dreyfus, Alfred's very scholarly host at UC Berkeley. From the start we were off comparing perspectives, sharing stories, and introducing each other to writers and thinkers we follow. It was a privilege to participate in such a thoughtful foray, a peek at the world--connected, virtual, physical--and how we learn (and have learned) to work together, including through the bay area--a unique but microcosmic place." — Matt Senate, Collaborative pioneer.
"Solving humanity's greatest challenges rests upon moving to a model of collaborative science” — Maneesh Juneja, CEO & Founder, MJ Analytics.
"More than ever, we need widespread and understandable critical inquiry into the many ways that digital media are affecting our lives. I've participated in hundreds of video and film interviews and my time with Katja and Alfred is memorable for their deep knowledge, critical thinking, and ideals. Their documentary film project is well worth supporting." — Howard Rheingold, leading thinker, author and teacher at Stanford University.
"In tomorrow's knowledge society, will some of the major political conflicts be about control over research and knowledge, and on the interpretation of risk and the allocation of resources for research. If public and private research is to produce socially robust knowledge and technology, it is essential that the communication between science and society is significantly improved." — Maja Horst
”Die ’Geisteswissenschaften’ dagegen müssen, um streng zu sein, notwendig unexakt bleiben. Das ist kein Mangel, sondern ihr Vorzug. Dabei bleibt die Durchführung der Strenge der Geisteswissenschaften leitungsmäßig immer sehr viel schwieriger als die Ausführung der Exaktheit der‚ exakten‘ Wissenschaften”. — Heidegger
"The space of flows is the material organization of time-sharing social practices that work through flows." — Manuel Castells
“I have sought to offer humanists a detailed analysis of a technology sufficiently magnificent and spiritual to convince them that the machines by which they are surrounded are cultural artifacts worthy of their attention and respect.” — Bruno Latour
