An ideation destination for The City 2.0

This Year's TED Prize is fantastic in idea and scope...

I am proposing an online forum to start specific interest groups in turning ideas into action for The City 2.0.

We start here... and gather both online, and in locations on the planet that can serve as Idea and Action hubs for City 2.0....

      The question is, how do you do it in a way that not only gets a following but also has powerful action behind it?

        I think the historical tie breaker is, this moment in time and TED. the former meaning, the world is in intense high need, economic downturn, real sustainability issues, global interdependance, and yet, unprecedented connectivity/ communication. ADD to this the synergy and brain trust of TED... it's a most amazing time to be alive and focussed on how to live differently on this round mobile home....
