Urgent Evoke

A crash course in changing the world.

Week 9 seemed so far away in March when I signed up for UE – my how time flies when you are having funJ.

This week is all about how to network in a crisis. For me (and I bet for many) when I think of the word network, computers automatically spring to mind. Looking up “network” on various online dictionaries, the word is most commonly defined as “an interconnected system of things or people”.

Reflecting on this, the week’s mission, and Alchemy’s chosen proverb for the week - The crowd does not lie, I feel more and more that although the “technology” behind the network is important, the people need to be the focus. Who am I talking to, why am it talking to her, what do I want to tell her, how can I tell it to her, what language does she speak, how/where will she receive this message … So as I develop my black site, these are the questions I will be striving to answer.

May I suggest that as you develop your black site, please visit the 10 tactics website which highlights different ways digital tools can be used in disaster management . The 10 tactics are:

  • Mobilizing people
  • Witness and record
  • Visualize your message
  • Amplify personal stories
  • Just add humour
  • Manage your contacts
  • How to use complex data
  • Use collective intelligence
  • Let people ask the questions
  • Investigate and expose

A most interesting site that I hope you will enjoy as much as I did.
