Mass Problem Solving

We Solve For X. What an interesting idea. In a world where collaboration has become commonplace, and networking with individuals across the globe is RIDICULOUSLY simple, could we encourage the general public to use it to solve real world problems? I mean, Angry Birds is great and all, but I want to do something REALLY meaningful with my time. Not only that, if I come up with a great idea, I want it to be MINE and get recognition (and hopefully some money) for it!

Aside from this guy's sweaty armpits and lack of finesse in describing these ideas, this video is indicative of what I hope people could achieve together in the next 10-20 years. I'd encourage you all to check out and see what it's all about. Not for you? Just wait 10 years, and I bet you'll be surprised at the new social networks that crop up...

  1. You might also consider watching Jane Mcgonigal's TED talk on using gaming to solve a world. It proposed a very similar idea several years ago and this is actually happening in various places around the world. It's pretty exciting stuff!
