Innovate on existing platforms (We’ve got bicycles and mobile phones in
Africa, plus lots of metal to weld. Innovate using that stuff, rather
than bringing in completely new tech.)
The best way to innovate is to recycle unused items. This way you will not only be helping yourself by bringing income to the place but also helping clear the area of trash. Continue

Well the idiots went and did it. NO ONE would come together. No one saw
that we all matter and that each life touches the other. One argument
escalated to another. People could not overcome their egos and see that
there is a beautiful world out there. That an ocean of people could come
together in one massive wave and put aside differences. They flat out
forgot the word Love. So we don't really know how or who, some say they
heard a person with his… Continue

If there was a tornado or other crisis in the town i am living I would utilize text messageing, actual phone calls, facebook, twitter and actually going door to door to alert and help people. the ushahadi project is excellent but we need to have one for each town in the US! I would also use the TV and any local chatrooms to check up on people and what they have heard. I would be calling everyone I know.
short but sweet.
grace and peace sunnydupree

The Ushahidi project is a platform which allows users to report important information by utilizing their smartphones. They can use video, pictures or text message to report the problems that are occuring in realtime. Ushahidi uses a filter so that they can plow through all the messages and find out what is really going on instead of having to go through the massive amounts of data that is transmitted on Ushahidi.
- What are the most likely natural disasters, food shortages, power…

I think that phrase "the crowd does not lie" can be utilized in the technologies that we have on hand. If one were to use their twitter account, facebook or other networking sites to report immediate problems the urgency would be evident to others as people report personally on what is happening. You can have one person saying something and it might be wrong but if a mass of people in separate areas are saying the same thing then you can pretty well bet it is true.

n the year 2020 the girls and women that I have helped will be happy and
confident. The world will be changed greatly because my women have
advanced their lives by coming together under the Idea that all people
are valuable no matter what their station or condition in life. All life
will be valued and therefor both sexes, men and women, will learn what
it means to care for their fellow man in a humane and moral manner. Wars
are no longer fought but hard won… Continue

I have come to this day for a purpose. I am not here to elevate fear. I am hear to help women fear less. The thing that most people need to know is that rape and other physical abuses are the most common problem for women and young children. As I have said before just about all the women I know have had someone molest them at one time are the other. I want women and children to know that they can arm themselves with knowledge and learn to keep an eye out for those who would hurt them.Because I… Continue

Economic Sustainability is key to a continous social innovations.
Without it, being dependant on fundings, continous presence of an NGO/INGO to making a difference to a society would be chronic at the level of "investment dilemma" -- the more you are investing your time and funds in that particular community, for particular issue, the more 'addicted' society is to the funds, and the more failure it becomes.…

two of my favortie secrets of evoking is listening and observing the situation. There are alot of people who say they know what a person is going through but, really they don't! Find someone who really has gone through the hardships of life and listen to what they have to say. or better yet think about it, put yourself in their shoes and search yourself on what you would do if you were going through what they were going through?

the biggest crisis i could see, occurring locally, here in Antelope, California would be electrical and gas shortages. the best way to deal with that would be to become energy independent. but for alternative energies to be possible we first need to find affordable ways to distribute these technologies to each resident. for these technologies to become affordable we should not be exporting industry and jobs as well as resources to other countries to make a "quick buck for the short run" but… Continue

Here is my answer to Quest 006: So what kind of world-changing action do YOU want to design? Your quest this week: Create three original calls to action: for an individual, for a crowd, and for a massive community.
If you had the power to convince today one person to do one thing, who would it be, and what would you call on him or her to do?
For an Indiviudal call to action: Pay it Forward
