Perhaps the best way to unleash the genius in each person,that art that gets them out of bed everyday,to put in the 10,000 hours of expertise, is to set them free, in spaces of permission, where they have nothing to prove.And where there’s plenty of crowdsourcing for gatherings that matter. [ie: finding your people everyday is a breeze.]
How to facilitate/crowdsource curiosities?Perhaps by hastening the time betweenfinding what matters to you & finding your people. closest to now possible how to shrink/hasten/accelerate this time period. everyday.
Could you Whoa. have your That’s how band test it it works? out?Cool jets. A connection is made in real life. App records it as a trail/node.
In order for this to happen, we are suggesting the removal of compulsion from our currentdefinition of public education.No doubt, no delusion, chaos is sure to abound.Perhaps tech can ground that chaos.
An app that would encourage/create/support: 1. People talking to themselves daily, asking themselves if they are doing what matters. 2. People connecting to people in their city/community, a strategic serendipity. 3. People’s mesh network, their footprint or trail.
Julia, age 12, uses a donated/recycled laptop and the donated wifi from the wifi bank, tovoice record the following before she goes to bed: I noticed a lot of my friends’ parents have cancer. They keep talking about early detection. I asked my mom and she said if you find out early on, the cancer can usually be cured, but that not enough people find out early. I also watched a video of a 17- year-old that wrote a recipe to cure cancer and is now working at Stanford. I’m dreaming about finding ways to improve early detection. I want to connect to people who are experts at this and see what I can learn from them.
Vicki, age 25, uses her iphone and texts while waiting at the doctor’s office: I just found out my mom has cancer. They told her they didn’t find it soon enough and that it’s spreading too fast. I’ve got to research myself, find out some other answers for her.
Tom, age 7, uses his mom’s ipad and his family’s wifi access, to record the following: My mom has been doing this healing stuff my whole life. I’ve never believed in it before. But she started doing it with me, because I have/had asthma, and now I don’t have it anymore. I’m really interested in seeing if it can help people with cancer.
The app connects them. A mesh network created for each of these could have one small node representing their intense curiosity and that’s it. Or, it could be the start of an offshoot node, as they advance into the study of health and medicine. Either way, this cancer node could be detected by the app in a couple weeks by someone else talking to themselves about the same things and then they all receive notification of another potential connection.
part of – betting on the sync5 mill – ish: for tech, while none of the ideas are new, combining them might be, being able to pay experts [to write code, for an app to hasten the time between finding what matters & finding your people…] and purchase resources [wifi, devices,..] will accelerate the ability to make this equitable on a global scale.

20 mill – ridiculous?Not if it sustains/creates a new/old society/economy.. We must do away with the absolutely specious notion that everybody has to earn a living. It is a fact today that one in ten thousand of us can make a technological breakthrough capable of supporting all the rest. The youth of today are absolutely right in recognizing this nonsense of earning a living. We keep inventing jobs because of this false idea that everybody has to be employed at some kind of drudgery because, according to Malthusian-Darwinian theory, he must justify his right to exist. So we have inspectors of inspectors and people making instruments for inspectors to inspect inspectors. The true business of people should be to go back to school and think about whatever it was they were thinking about before somebody came along and told them they had to earn a living. – Bucky FullerImagine – if it works.
