** The interspecies internet? An idea in progress...

20:01 minutes · Filmed Feb 2013 · Posted Jul 2013 · TED2013

Apes, dolphins and elephants are animals with remarkable communication skills. Could
the internet be expanded to include sentient species like them? A new and developing
idea from a panel of four great thinkers -- dolphin researcher Diana Reiss, musician
Peter Gabriel, internet of things visionary Neil Gershenfeld and Vint Cerf, one of
the fathers of the internet.

Peter Gabriel writes incredible songs but, as the co-founder of WITNESS and
TheElders.org, is also a powerful human rights advocate.

As Director of MIT's Center for Bits and Atoms, Neil Gershenfeld explores the
boundaries between the digital and physical worlds.

Diana Reiss studies animal cognition, and has found that bottlenose dolphins (and
Asian elephants) can recognize themselves in the mirror.

Vint Cerf, now the chief Internet evangelist at Google, helped lay the foundations
for the internet as we know it more than 30 years ago.

I maintain couchsurfing and crowdsurfing are basically the same thing — you're
falling into the audience and you're trusting each other."
