THRIVE is a movie, free online, created by Foster & Kimberly Gamble out of Santa Cruz, CA. It has been viewed by over 22 million, and contains over 14 bleeding edge possibilities.
The website is just now developing as a hub for a mixture of spirtualist and activist souls. It turns out, as explained by Foster Gamble in one of his many personal appearances, that spiritualists are vastly better able to get a grip on complex and often incomprehensible issue mash-ups, while activists tend to focus on one issue at a time. Hence, it is the spiritualists that are the leaders and the integrators.
The web site provides hours of engagement opportunity, inclusive of twelve critical focus areas and many short videos as well as many links. Academic credit can be earned via Gaia University and Wisdom University. Below is a 2 minute 11 second introduction.

Bob Adelmann is a graduate of Cornell University with two degrees, including a Masters of Business Administration with a concentration in economics and finance. Bob’s career path took him from insurance into estate planning, and then into investment and tax planning.

He then sold the company to his son in 1996 and now concentrates on writing for The New American.
Douglas Rushkoff has been an authority on the intersection of technology and culture since before the word “google” was anything more than baby talk. He predicted the coming centrality of the Internet (CYBERIA, 1992 – a book initially canceled by a publisher who feared the net would be over by the time it came out); he coined the terms “viral media” (MEDIA VIRUS, 1994) and “social currency” (Upside Magazine, 1996); he forecasted the collapse of the dotcom bubble (SXSW, 1997) and the most recent recession in a 2004 column that later became his book, LIFE INC; he even inspired today’s code literacy movement (PROGRAM OR BE PROGRAMMED, 2010). He is the author of a total of twelve bestsellers (translated to over thirty languages), the host of three award-winning documentaries, an award-winning educator and frequent media commentator.
