A crash course in changing the world.
For the first misson you must pick your favorite of the 33 secrets to social intervantions, then write what you think of it. This was my favorite:
"If somebody already invented it, you don’t have to"
It made me stop and think, and although I liked the one about thinking like a kid, this one really stuck with me. My mind just flashed to all the usless products everyone is coming out with now. Take the Ipad, Itouch, Iphone, Ipod for example. There are already so many laptops and such out there in the world; we don't need to be wasting supplies and money to make all these new products when everything that goes into that could be used to better help a country in need.
I think could better help others as well as myself not to focus on bettering something useless we already have, but to creativly think of new ideas for the world at large. I can see me creating a new style of laptop, but the world has so many of those and they are not helping the countries that need help. Now I know, forget laptop I'm going to create a cheap way to save energy, or a tablet that eliminates hunger while giving all the vitemins and protein that humans need. We need to create items the will HELP the world not use up it's natural resourses.
