Imagine. Evidence part 2.

Started here

There will be also 3 more places where I can be found in 2020.

  1. Study
  2. Garden
  3. Rescue mission


Why? `Cause it`s another part of educating. Studying.
Another reason - writing. One of my dream is to become writer. Nope. A lie. I…

Act1: My hero: Brian Conley

The first hero I want to write about is Brian Conley.

You may not have heard of him, but for the last years he has been doing impressive work in helping reports from hot zones around the world reach us. Unfiltered, co-created by locals, raw at times.

His first video project that I became aware of was "Alive in Baghdad". For a few years, they sent out videos…

it has to be the very first point made by Ethan Zuckerman - innovation (often) comes from constraint. You do not always have the resources you need and this requires one to be creative. Its this creativity that brings about innovation. You need to be able to really think out of the box. Creative ideas will not appear, if you are too focused on the resources you do not have. Look at the resources you do have and make a list of the positives of those resources and from there begin by thinking of… Continue

Along with this.

Listen to the right people, Come on people? We all know how to do it, but sometimes we don't and it seem like we went the other way and found the wrong person, but they are out there and when you find them stick by them and listen to them, because they are the people who are going to be helping you out in the end no matter what you do, Listen to them and always make sure they listen to you as well. Don't think about what or how they do it, just get down there and talk to them and do it with… Continue

What will I be doing in 10 years?

Well 2020 is quite a long way off. But I hope that by the time it rolls around I work in a museum and am the best uncle I could possibly ever be. I am currently enrolled in university at and I am working towards a degree in History with a specialization in European. I hope to spend my days talking about history and having discussions about…

My favourite innovation tip

The Entry I liked most is:

Tim Brown spoke about this in one of his TED talks and it is awfully

Friend people who are on the right track. But be discerning. This will naturally breed recognition of intelligence and improve exposure on all social networking mediums.

IMAGINE 1: 10 years from now...

10 years is a long time.

Its hard to even decide what I'm going to do with present issues. 10 years from now I hope to have finished with graduate school and obtained a career that i love. I plan on having my B.A. and Masters completed in Communications, Public Relations and Marketing. I'm halfway to my B.A. so that seems much more than reasonable. If I were called upon to help out in the Tokyo Food Crisis, i would hope my education and experience in the communications field would help… Continue

Problems are not that far

"Problems are not always obvious from afar (You really have to live for

a while in a society where no one has currency larger than a $1 bill to

understand the importance of money via mobile phones.)"

I think problems (and solutions) are around us. You don't have to live in Africa, to see powerty. Try to help the poor people around you. I dare anyone to say, they don't pass someone poor on the street almost every day.

I think it's easier to help poor people around you, and… Continue

Barbara Hogan!

My mentor is Barbara Hogan. Her life is an inspiration to anyone who knows anything about her actions. Beginning with joining the banned ANC during apartheid South Africa and currently serving as the Minister of Public Enterprises in the South African cabinet, her life has been filled with adventurous action which has improved the lives of millions of South Africans.

Her role in the…

People with problems are not the problem : they're the solution.

This rules seems the more important to me : don't pretend to know what people lives.

Experts are educated in universities, that are socially and historically determined. We can't just wait for experts to analyze a social problem, or try to be an expert.

1/ People must find their own solutions.

2/ People must be part of this solutions.

The better exemple is the Foucault's commitment against prisons in the 70's. Some rules… Continue

My favorite secret of social innovation.

My favorite secret of social innovation is that coming up with a solution to a problem on limited resources requires using existing platforms upon which to build a solution. Bringing in new technology or products requires massive amounts of resources. Therefore, being creative in finding a solution using existing platforms will bring about change more quickly.

Mike Feinberg KIPP

I chose to follow Mike Feinberg. Mr. Feinberg created the Knowledge Is Power Program <KIPP> the objective of this program was to prepare children in underserved area with the skills and education they will need to go to college.

He does this by extending the schools hours, and days the students attend. It is a pre-k to 12th grade school, and hopefully it will set a new standard for all schools.

The schools also contract the parents to dedicate their time to the success of…

2020...(A Merman I Should Turn to Be) [Mission 1.3]

Today is March 3rd, 2020 and I have been dancing for five hours in this crazy red rock desert. The quarter moon works its way slowly across the sky, marking our ritual progress. Friends are here too, bodies pulsing rhythmically or beating the drums in frenzied time, their active tattoos weaving bright contrails of color in the darkness. Photos are taken, videos uploaded; evidence for the mission. We are gamers, and we play a long game.

Ten years ago I went into…

Listen, Indulge, Learn, Teach

It is better to teach a life long skill rather than giving the final product up front. Education is something that one can never lose or run out of unlike the final product. Taking from an ancient saying, "It is better to teach one how to fish with a net then to just give them the fish because the fish is only temporary but the…

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.
