“Look again at that dot. That’s here. That’s home. That’s us. On it everyone you love, everyone you know, everyone you ever heard of, every human being who ever was, lived out their lives. The aggregate of our joy and suffering, thousands of confident religions, ideologies, and economic doctrines, every hunter and forager, every hero and coward, every creator and destroyer of civilization, every king and peasant, every young couple in love, every mother and father, hopeful child, inventor and explorer, every teacher of morals, every corrupt politician, every “superstar,” every “supreme leader,” every saint and sinner in the history of our species lived there—on a mote of dust suspended in a sunbeam.”
— Carl Sagan, Pale Blue Dot, 1994
Since Carl Sagan’s comments on the greater significance of a photograph of planet Earth taken on February 14, 1990 by the Voyager 1 space probe, the internet has proliferated across this bumpy spheroid we inhabit - causing more frequent collisions of people, things, ideas, and dreams from Albuquerque to Mumbai and beyond.
When COVID-19 shut down local economies, e-commerce growth accelerated even more than before, this time mostly out of necessity.
The way people shop has changed in the last few decades — from visiting malls, to buying online and now virtually trying on shoes and accessories like sunglasses from your couch.
In the intent-driven model of e-commerce—marked by table-like grids of products, filters, and search bars, there are opportunities to create new experiences that promote the sense of serendipity and fun of shopping in the real world.
This was our goal with Mav Farm’s new Global Marketplace and Geo-Drops feature, where anyone can find amazing products and videos from emerging creators and brands around the world.
