http://www.ignitesocialmedia.com/social-media-and-china-its-not-what-you-think-notes-from-sxsw/ Great short comments from the Google founders…
http://socialnomics.net/2011/01/21/googles-social-strugges-reason-for-schmidt-departure/ And the changing dynamics of global social networks as users grow in different areas and the networks compete and evolve… Anyone can help everyone right now just by improving one action or activity a day? What are the easiest and best things to do to help everyone? 1.
Smiling at everyone is easy and brightens up everyones day AND makes you feel good. 2.
Watching and listening slowly and carefully to everyone we meet makes them feel good and reminds us how beautiful everyone is and how all anyone wants is to be happy and how we can all help each other be happy just by being nice 3.
Share or give away as many items as possible to help others when they are not in use as it costs you nothing but can help others if given to the most suitable people as possible 4…. How to remind yourself to do this and more? Maybe by watching an inspiring video every day eg from http://www.WEBiversity.org Is culture the most democratic force/mem there is as it allows everyone to take part in any way they like without using language? Below are some tweets made at Culture Hack Day…
I am looking to collaborate with other people who are interested in enabling and empowering everyone to help everyone using new techniques and technology. Would you be interested in collaborating on this? We will help any charity that is open minded enough to ask for help to creatively innovate their product/service AND invent new ways to solve many different social issues cheaply and efficiently. This will lead to you creating the perfect job for yourself where you are paid to help as many other people as possible. 2.
Do you know anyone we could work with asap to make a Drupal crowdsource version of http://www.WEBiversity.org as a Charity so we can share the best free video’s to help everyone. Who can I talk to in order to do this with you? (starting with a simple drupal build using existing add ons then developing new add ons). We have some funding for this but are building it as a volunteer organisation. Please comment here if you can help or know someone who can and tweet to @whymandesign Want to help house and feed everyone free and also learn? Lets Collaborate.. Would you like to work with others to enable anyone to build their own house for free! If interested in this please join the http://www.WEBiversity.org site and comment on the Facebook group saying what you want and what you can do? http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=352077702670 and Tweet to @whymandesign with your suggestions. We are designing a few simple ways for anyone to build their own house… 1. they can transport it anywhere easily
2. they can build it easily using materials they can grow or recycle What we create will be run as a Not For Profit Charity and Open source so that everyone can create their own job and house to live in so they can spend their whole live working on things that interest them that they can then share with the rest of the world. http://www.WEBiversity.org has inspiring video and http://www.TRUSTlibrary.org has a simple way anyone can make their own public library in minutes and both use the http://www.traidmark.org business model.

http://www.treehugger.com/files/2008/10/30-different-ways-to-put-a-roof-over-your-head.php#comment-128849857 How to enhance important products and services so they become innovative public services that are responsible for their actions and the importance of their service? 1.
How to keep all organisations responsible and run as public services when they are?
(or at least when fundamental pieces of infrastructure that are too big to fail eg an organisation that has a virtual monopoly such as technology/education/finance… organisations)? Many great innovative organisations and innovations are so fundamental that they are too important to be managed or owned by private individuals who could easily succumb to private interest. Imagine if the discovery of the Wheel, fire or the internet were kept private by ownership and licensing we would all loose out! In the same way all technology or inventions are discovered by the people who are at the right place at the right time so they are just ‘lucky’ they are there by chance so have no right to skim the riches / rewards from being there and take them away from being used responsibly to help everyone in the most efficient way (selfless innovation). You could say that any idea/product or service that is patented or copy written is a form of Idea or intellectual theft that harms everyone as we should ALL benefit as much as possible from any idea/product/service and the proven best way to do this is with open innovation AND responsibly managing the products/services as Not For Profit / Charities. 2.
How to keep all organisations innovating as much as possible? Creatively innovating and reinventing products and services have proven to help everyone. Open Innovation has proven to enhance any product or service so is key. http://www.TRAIDmark.org is a free way for anyone to enhance their products and services by creating institutional innovation where 100% net profit is donated to NEW INNOVATIVE CHARITABLE WORK that benefits everyone which creates a cycle of success AND goodwill so that partners/suppliers/customers help enhance your product in a positive Gift Economy way. http://www.FREEtraid.org helps too. http://www.WEBiversity.org has more video’s about this. 3.
The biggest danger with Creativity and Innovation is if the Creators and Innovators are NOT rewarded then their hard work will be unsustainable. There is a danger that many people will use Open Innovation as Idea theft which is incredibly damaging as the people who have the ideas are then not able to go on to create even more ideas that can help everyone and save lives. 4.
How best to prevent idea theft? Make all ideas/designs/products/services owned by the global community so they can be licensed to individuals who can then use them and pay a licensing fee and donate a high percentage of their profits to NEW INNOVATIVE CHARITABLE WORK? As everyone is able to care about everything and we all do care about something plus want to help each other WHAT is stopping us all from helping each other more? 1.
How best to INSPIRE everyone to help everyone in fun ways so it is easy and enjoyable to help others? WHAT do we want to achieve? Simple aims can be the most important and most effective to solve such as making everyone happy? Video’s are proven ways to inspire with Youtube providing the tools people like http://www.TED.com http://www.poptech.com & http://wwww.theRSA.org are providing great content that is being shared. We would like to work with you to develop the http://www.WEBiversity.org site so that we can highlight the best video’s on the web in order to benefit everyone. 2.
How best to ENABLE everyone to help everyone even more effectively? What do we want to achieve? The most knowledge or the most wisdom? Do we have enough knowledge already to help everyone become wise and happy? Linking everyone up with the internet via different software can be great but the software can also restrict our potential. Time is the key currency that is easily underestimated and wasted by software that can save so much time in one way and waste it in another eg forms. The tools that are created need to be open source so that they can be openly innovated by anyone so everyone benefits which means that you individually benefit. 3.
What TOOLS help everyone help everyone even more effectively… The tools / technology we invent and use appear to be the barriers and boundaries that have held us back in the past. What tools are holding us back now and what reinvented and new tools could positively / negatively effect us all on large or small scales? 4.
What TECHNIQUES help everyone help everyone even more effectively… The techniques and cultural expectations we have used in the past appear to have been the boundaries that have held us back. What techniques and cultural expectations are holding us back and which reinvented and new ones could positively / negatively effect us all on large or small scales? Not for profit cooperatives and volunteer groups appear to enable the best selfless collaboration that benefits everyone
eg http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia We made http://www.TRUSTlibrary.org as a free way for anyone to make their own Trust Library in minutes using a few unwanted books that you may have so you can create a free place for anyone to meet, talk and collaborate. Why not try to make one if you have a few minutes to spare and see who you can help…. Would it be possible to work with you to use every empty space or any kind (when temporarily vacant or out of season…) when it is vacant for charity use (on a temporary basis until it is rented:)? We have used 50 empty shops so far to use for charity work where we give away free books to help everyone read more and would like to do this in any/all the spaces you have. The key benefit to your landlords is that they then save from having to pay commercial rates on the shops which is a massive benefit. All we ask in return for saving the landlords this money is that they donate at least 50% of the funds they save to innovative charity projects that we create using the shops. (not to mention how many lives can be improved/saved by using the space to get academics together to work on solving human problems selflessly. Make your own http://www.TRUSTlibrary.org in minutes now anywhere in the world. Everyone benefits and this is a proven activity that will enhance your great work too while saving lives with innovative charity. Also Would it be possible to creatively enhance your great work as the Social Media Manager while also creatively helping you help as many young people as possible? I would love to help in any way and can help asap in these ways… 1.
Any innovation that is created can be run as a not for profit charity (so it is politically and commercially impartial) where any surplus funds each charity makes are used to invest in NEW INNOVATIVE CHARITY STARTUPS which create a cycle of INSTITUTIONAL INNOVATION. http://www.TRAIDmark.org explains more. 2.
I can help set up a website to facilitate this very cheaply using drupal open source software that enables everyone and anyone to collaborate on crowdsourcing what they want to do. This can be set up asap as a charity is i work with one of your programmers (or can get a programmer i know to help). 3.
Can we work with you to create a Registered Charity Communications Agency that saves charities on communications costs while also creating innovative solutions to many human problems. Also Can I enhance your software and social media creatively. As your team is full of open minded pioneers how can i get involved in order to do this? I work with a ‘yes we can’ mentality and hope to help enhance your team with this and my proven skills. A tiny example of this is by embedding video into your open source software. we created a technical example at http://www.WEBiversity.org Do comment on the facebook group at http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=352077702670 Warm regards Ed @whymandesign
How is it best to empower anyone to creatively innovate so they can help everyone selflessly as effectively as possible? For example now that the internet is connecting everything with social & mobile media we not can reinvent everything so that everyone can benefit even more. I would love to help you creatively enhance your work with innovation so please do contact me http://www.whymandesign.com http://www.webiversity.magnify.net/video/Michael-Neill-What-Stops-You http://www.webiversity.magnify.net/video/Napoleon-Hill-Part-6-Success-Pr How best to turn any negative into a positive? Make it a learning experience so you dont repeat the negative?
Share the learning experience with everyone on the web so others do not have to experience it. http://www.webiversity.magnify.net/video/Napoleon-Hill-Think-and-Grow–2
As no one is perfect (so we all need to continually learn and improve often without knowing it) how is it best to help us all learn how to improve ourselves and also to help teach each other what we know and learn in a 100% positive way? Is there a better way than positive peer review of EVERYTHING anyone does while ALWAYS suggesting an alternative that may or may not be better? Do empowering video’s eg http://www.WEBiversity.org help enough or do we need peer review? How about always stopping if you find yourself in an argument and not trying to prove the other person wrong! Is there a simple and effective way to solve arguments and conflicts? Is it not always the case that arguments are caused by misunderstanding in language/interpretation/communication… and often two contradictory views can exist as they may well be ‘correct’ under different circumstances. How can we all remind ourselves and each other to continually have more compassion towards every other fellow human being as we all just want to be happy and loved by others. Looking at the innate beauty in every human beings face or insecurities/failures helps. Complementing everyone as much as possible makes us all feel good and can never be done too much. http://www.webiversity.magnify.net/video/Michael-Neill-The-Principle-of
Do you help others? Let us reward your great work with creative Social Media innovation?

Also join and comment on the facebook group http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=352077702670 If you work on helping as many other people as possible as a Charity, Not For Profit or Social Enterprise that donates we would like to reward your work by enhancing your Social Media and marketing for FREE ( RRP £3-50,000). All we ask in return is that you donate as much as you can (funds/skills/tools) so we can continue to support providing free services for other great organisations like yourself as part of a gift economy. http://www.webiversity.magnify.net/video/Napoleon-Hill-Think-and-Grow-Ri Previous examples of creative & social media work that enhanced many great organizations significantly by enhancing innovation are…
http://www.oxfam.org.uk when setting up, managing and creatively enhancing the pioneering Fairtrade Coffee Shop Progreso.
http://www.BBC.co.uk when creating and successfully pitching pioneering social media multiplatform productions to BBC & World Service Commissioners.
http://raceonline2012.org when setting up and managing the Social Media Strategy.
http://www.b-live.com when consulting on the social and technical potential and Social Media Strategy.
We have successfully pitched several multiplatform (TV & WEB) production not to mention winning a BBC wide TV pitching competition when pitching to Peter Fincham (now ITV Studios Commissioner) and Peter Salmon (Now BBC Studios Commissioner) with a Multiplatform social media production that used the wisdom of crowds to enable anyone to help Charity that raises significant funds for Charity though voting.
Our passion is about sharing all knowledge that ENABLES anyone to be happy for free EFFECTIVELY (everyone can do this easily by sharing free online information that makes EVERYONE happy with their peer group & more)?…
http://www.WEBiversity.org aims to do this and below are two great examples of free video content that can be shared with anyone free. Pass on this free information to any/everyone you know so they can have happier lives (peace and love too:)
