A crash course in changing the world.

Crisis Networking - Imagine


Who would YOU call on to make a heroic effort during a pandemic?

In this week's episode, Ember designed her own crisis networking solution. She asked ALL of the doctors in China to log into an emergency website to help run virtual Pearl River Flu clinics -- to answer medical questions from faraway patients, and analyze patient photos taken on mobile phones.

Ember's solution was an ideal emergency call to action. Why? Because:

  1. It's an easy-to-accomplish task,
  2. in a short amount of time
  3. that doctors already know how to do.

Ember played to the doctor's strengths -- and helped amplify their ability to help with an online network.

Not everyone has medical training. But everyone has a part to play during a crisis.

Your mission this week: Design an emergency call to action for a NON-medical community. Who else could log in and make a heroic effort during a pandemic outbreak?

Be creative: What could non-doctors do online during a pandemic to help? It can be anyone -- teachers, cooks, artists. Who else can you imagine saving the day during a pandemic?

Your objective:

It's the year 2011, and the next pandemic flu has just reached YOUR part of the world. You've been asked to organize one group of people online to do something that matters. Who are they, and what heroic effort will you ask them to make? Tell a story in a video or blog post about the crisis networking solution YOU devise.

This objective is worth +15 resourcefulness.

I would organize a group of doctors, and politicians to come up with ways to stop the flu and find an effective vaccine for it and have the politicians relay messages to the public keeping them informed and as calm as possible. I think that this wold be effective in a given situation such as a pandemic flu.

The non-medical crisis networking group I would put together for this outbreak would include the world's top chefs and vitamin experts. Because different spices and cooking ingredients effect the body differently, the chefs in my networking group would be able to inform people about what foods they can prepare to help them feel better faster. Furthermore, the vitamin experts will be able to give recommendations about what natural supplements can be taken to reduce the effects of the pandemic flu so people can start to overcome the illness faster.

get all the top doctors in the nations together!

Comment by Celeste Cooper on December 18, 2012 at 12:31am

I would call on my mom because then we could alert the president and more important people about the crisis like doctors and scientists.

Comment by Jacob Brunson on December 14, 2012 at 3:13am
I would get a group of highly trained doctors from the CDC and the mayo clinic to help figure out a way to stop the pandemic.
Comment by NaamaErez on December 14, 2012 at 3:04am

I would create a "safe zone" where only healthy people could live while they try to find the cure.

Comment by Joshua Bennafield on December 12, 2012 at 11:24pm
I would ask professors and doctors to work together and find out solutions on how to make a vaccine or cure.
Comment by Elise Flanagan on December 10, 2012 at 1:56am

I would ask the top doctors in the nation to inform me about disease and cures to help figure what we could to do make a cure.

I would round up the amazing scientists of the time to help cure the pandemic. If they would succeed they would wipe it out, so the remaing lives would be saved. If they fail though they could keep the flu contained to allow the others some extra life.

Comment by madalyn lieberman on December 9, 2012 at 3:21pm

I would call my mom and dad. Both of them are very smart and logical.

Comment by Arthur Sigfried Miltner on December 8, 2012 at 1:27am

I would round up a group of the world's greatest geniuses (like Hal Olson*) to form online conversations to come up with solutions to current crises.

Comment by Mary Crawford Esslinger on December 7, 2012 at 2:48am

I would call my dad. He is very smart and encouraging and I trust that he can fix any situation

Comment by Peter Thomas Duncan on December 6, 2012 at 11:28pm
I would get a mix of intelligent thinkers and medical helpers to help the worlds health. The could help make tips with each other about preventing sicknesses and harmful things that can threaten you.
Comment by Christian Sutton on December 6, 2012 at 10:37pm

I would gather some of the smartest people in th world and find a cure for the disease. Also, I would say some tips about being safe and clean during the disease.

Comment by Lauren Keen on December 6, 2012 at 10:27pm

i would get a bunch of smart people to come together and think of creative ideas for a solution.

Comment by Hal Olson on December 6, 2012 at 9:46pm

All of the engineers in the city, be it electrical, civil, industrial, mechanical, etc. would be of great use during the pandemic. They would be able to build temporary clinics for all of the infected, so the uninfected would not get infected because those affected by the virus would no longer have to go to clinics in the crowded areas of town.

Comment by Mahzuza Rahaman on December 6, 2012 at 9:44pm

To cure the pandemic flu I will try to gather anyone who is willing to help people in need.We will ask people to support the people that are sick, and gather scientist also.

Comment by Brian Adam Smith on December 6, 2012 at 2:36am

I will get my best thinkers on the job and scientists to cure the pandemic just enough so the world wouldn't be overpopulated anymore but i will tell them to fix it as fast as possible.

Comment by Olivia Koenig on December 6, 2012 at 2:30am

I would get nobel peace prize winners and creative thinkers to come together to think of logical solutions and to get them to communicate.

Fourth of July on the Lake

This past weekend was the annual celebration at the lake house in Connecticut. It is amazing that the lake is still so clear and beautiful after all these years. The watershed association has done a wonderful job protecting these waters from the damaging effects of development.The wood grill was finally ready to cook on, so we didn't miss the propane tank fueled grill anymore. The food actually tasted fresher than in the past and was easy to keep fueled.Dad was very proud of the solar hybrid…See More

FutureToday is 2020/1/1. It is just like yesterday. The war is still continuing. It has started since 2010. In 2010, that year was a horrible year. Almost every energy ran out. Every country’s governments were crushed down at the same time. There were riots everywhere. All of the big company’s bosses were killed xdeadx in the riots. Troops fought each other everywhere. Food was bought up xawayx at once. There were no more food supplies in any shops. The economy was all crushed down. All the…See More

public servants

The exchange works directly for state and public workers and servants. It gives them credit in exchange for the amount of public work they contribute to the community. The more constructive they are based off a base rate the more credit they recieve.

Where I will be in ten years.

Ten years from now I will be in a political job assisting with people in the midlands of South Carolina particularly the rural working class and farmers. As the class of people that feed the nation I find that it is imperative that we assist with making sure they produce as much food as possible. I would like to support local scientists as well that are leading in research on how to produce food more efficiently. I will also be participating in missions to foreign countries to help people with…See More
