So, in the year 2011, when the next pandemic flu has reached my part of the world, and I need to reach out and organize one group of people online to do something that matters, I will target a group of people who care
. I will use my dark site, Typhoon Times
) to generate the initial email list. This comprises of people who have already proved that they cared through their response to the emergency that was Typhoon Ondoy in September 2009.
In my first email to this group, I will remind them of the essential skills that they will need to use in their collaboration:
This would be my initial emergency call to action.
I have no doubt, that once this email is sent, then this community would get together and display their heroic potential again. And together, as trustful, confident, creative members of a community that cares, they will find the solutions to the problems at hand and will inspire these qualities in others so we can all save the day. Together.
