Histórico da criação: queremos saber sobre seu momento "Eureca!". Compartilhe a história de onde e quando o fundador percebeu o potencial desta solução para mudar o mundo.
While working in crowd sourcing information in Haiti, we realized that the picture of the situation does not lie in the hands of any individual. We were helping thousands of citizens get information based on data from journalist stringers, who went at great pains in understanding the situation in port au prince and missed nuances that were only apparent after the fact. The citizens knew these aspects all along and if we only had had a better way to have people collaboratively build the picture of the situation in the camps, the journalists would have had better information and events like the rapid spread of cholera could have been mitigated better.
Seeing the use of social media tools in the recent events in Middle East, was a confirmation that a tool like this was worth exploring.
Especifique a intensidade e a escala de impacto social desta solução até o momento
This idea is new, but our experience in Haiti shows that information in the hand of citizens causes up to 85% behavior change.
Qual é o impacto projetado para os próximos 1 - 5 anos? A ideia pode ser aproveitada? Como?
Our idea is global in scale and tools exist to create channels (text messages, voice, twitter, etc.) in different countries in easy and fast ways. The impact in each instance will depend on the situation, but will generally consist of a better collective knowledge of a story as it unfolds - including seeing divergent opinions, misinformation and gaps.
