Under The Sun
I have several ideas that could change the world. I'd like to share and develop them. What would be the platform? How to keep my ideas safe?
I have three online projects on my mind. They are so complex that even one is more than enough for one lifetime.
1) I've thought of and sketched out a workflow to work on collaborative governance. It would be a way to structure collective discussion and voting on a question - answer and project proposal base. The more I look at it, I feel it will work. For the moment I study quora.com to learn how it organizes the interactions. The Berlin Pirate Party are working on Liquid Democracy, a system that allows for voting and discussion by the broader audience.
2) I've had the idea to build a project like WOT, (web of trust) on the value of information. It could be integrated in something like stumbleupon, which already does a selection of information. I'm trying to find the right factors to asses information. I feel this might make a big difference on the web.
3)I'm building a project to connect complementary medicine and regular healthcare. To have better knowledge management in these topics.
I see it as slightly attainable to work on the third project alone, but the three of them is really to much, but I believe so much it might work I cannot let it go. I'd like to share my ideas, find a platform to develop them.
I'm talented as an artist and I've put that talent aside because I felt I could do more through other means than art. I hope I don't sound to boastfull, I try to be honest to my ideas and I feel they really could make a big difference. My mind is boggled by the complexity but I feel I do not want to waste these ideas.
Who could help? Who would like to listen? How do I make sure my ideas are falling into the right hands?
