Beginning of Russian Pandemic, 2011, Brainstorm between Michele and I:
Michele: panicked people get carelessme: Lets create cla**** for how to make a phone treeand spread the through the countryside by using UshahidiMichele: ok. those are useful, but remember to have bounce back links in case someone remote can't answer because in distressme: AgreedWho can we start with?Someone has to start teachingMichele: will be entire country?or just one city/rural area?me: Its already in the major cities (wink)Michele: ok, but those with must teach those without.me: We need to get the word out to the country side. Lets mobilize using face book.Michele: start in Vladivostok, teachers to inland to train community leaders and youth guides.facebook is good. also I think universities have web links.so can "big brother/big sister" universities with a 'family' of lower-tier schools.me: Ok, you contact some university leaders, I will contact some students, and we will meetMichele: ok.

I thought (for mine, would work in Russia too) that restaurants should agree to prep food inevent of quarantines, for clean prep/delivery; stores should agree topost available goods, anticipated delivery of new, in order to quellpanic buying/hoarding;and if/when any one/group is quarantined, the food/water issue is taken care of... can also use community center/school kitchens for group foodprep (usually stainless steel/sterile)because no one remembers food borne illness exacerbates any bio hazard there is.water too.me: Lets make it happen!
