My TED story

I'm a huge proponent of TED. We watch it in our home in place of less productive 'entertainment' programming. TED has been a true comfort and inspiration to my family and I, in showing us just how easy it can be for us to achieve meaning through service. I have a vision, of a single web platform that makes use of simple, extant applications to harness the world's interest in resolving our ecological and sociological problems quickly, safely, cheaply and legally. Planet Victory is my proposal to develop just such a website, and my goal is to organize a developers community around the concept, and expedite the world's first techno-organic, Gaian immune system. The great green eye of Sauron. Come see.

Implementing a Star Trek Economy
OK How about a participatory global 'immune system', built with today's web tech, to aggregate and catalyze interest in resolving global crises? http://prezi.com/fmt2uwopzx5g/planet-victory/

What if the masses had access to a web platform that allowed each individual to contribute to and participate in action campaign for global reform, according to their own interests and abilities? http://prezi.com/fmt2uwopzx5g/planet-victory/

This isn't enough to motivate people? http://vimeo.com/1709110 Bare in mind, we only need ENOUGH people working the problem, not all. Check out the platform I'm building: http://prezi.com/fmt2uwopzx5g/planet-victory/

Implementing a Star Trek Economy
I've said as much to friends. I've sited the Star Trek global culture as a plausible goal to shoot for. I think there are many paths to the top of this mountain, with many massive steps to be taken. This is my best foot forward with regard to righting this world. Please give it a look and let me know if you'd like to help; I'm currently recruiting a developers' community. http://prezi.com/fmt2uwopzx5g/planet-victory/ The sooner we get this, or something like it online, the sooner we can fix the world without doing anything horrible.

Let's Create a Global Declaration of Loving Intention
Hi Don, weighing in. 1) I think that written declarations will be de-emphasized as the market will favor functionality and the mission statements of sites/companies that put forward that functionality. What I see coming is a world with nations of ideas rather than walls. 2) There's SO much reading to sift through on this thread! D = It's easier to absorb information via text in short bursts. 3) The global enlightenment has already begun. We are at the beginning of a Galactic Renascence. Between now and the time when we start colonizing space, there is only progress or doom. Thank you Don. I hope you'll follow @Planet_Victory as we build up a developers community to build a single open source site to expedite the resolution of all Earthly ills.

To build a single web platform with the exclusive goal and all necessary functionality to resolve all socio-ecological crises on Earth, now.
Please explain what you mean by filtering, and thank you for writing in. I'm debating whether or not nods for Crises, Solutions and Realizations should vary in size or not, and I've already thought of a few different toggles for what shows on the map; like only Crises, only Solution, or only Realizations. Also, what kinds of issues one wishes to view; ecological or sociological, local or global, like that. And I was think of adding an aura to the icons to convey urgency. The primary search filter is simply brightly colored regional divisions on the virtual globe map. Continent, nation, province, city borough. Just that would make it a badly needed exercise in geography. I envision a pattern minuses, light bulbs and pluses that give the viewer an instant understanding of how our biosphere and our humanity are doing.
