Changing the World, One Minecraft Server at a time

I'm a big fan of mindfully using technology to make our lives better. Sure, zoning out to a movie or video game is fun and has its place. But I see huge potential for a more active approach to tech. Combine this with the fact that I'm in the middle of reading To Siri with Love, a parenthood story of a Mom with an autistic child, and you can appreciate why this TED Talk was such a winner.

The talk, How I use Minecraft to help kids with autism, is a straightforward one. An autistic dad, created a virtual space for autistic kids to play, and the results were wonderful.

It's truly a story of using technology to accomplish something profound.

It also underscores that the tech doesn't need to be exotic or cutting edge. The tools are already out there, we just need to put them to use.

Maybe it's time to learn Minecraft?
