Today we see the OLPC or One Laptop Per Child program help bring emerging nations into the 21st Century and children can communicate with one another from other nations, they can work together and collaborate using computers to do projects and group thinking. This is a wonderful thing indeed, then there are international blogging groups where bloggers from around the world communicate and discuss things. We also see how sporting events like the Olympics and Soccer have united the world, and let’s not forget the Space Program too.
Still, it makes sense to continue to unite the world and ditch the misunderstanding involved in the vast differences in culture, religions and customs. Another way we can do this is through online gaming communities that use networks that go worldwide so that the players can work in teams and even compete against each other, thus building camaraderie too. Luckily, this is already taking place and many computer gamers are linked up and participating in online gaming, with folks not just in their own nations, but half way around the globe.
This new trend and the availability of high speed networks and internet is making it all possible, and the speeds are similar to being in the next room and on the same network, imagine the future possibilities for peace, all through something as simple and fun as online gaming. Recently, the Online Think Tank noted the speeds and increasing ability of international internet networking, mostly due to online trading, where everything happens instantaneously. Nevertheless, borrowing these ultra fast systems, means ultra fact communication in gaming and perhaps the ultimate in new way to unite the world.
