How about this?
Instead of mapping our tummy aches, let’s apply the algorithm to social challenges.
Imagine it: a real-time map using cues from social networking sites (a la Facebook, Twitter, Blogs, Media) to capture the most pressing challenges our communities are facing. Building awareness of what our neighbors struggle with creates a demand for solutions. For social innovation. For the importation of proven solutions from our network of 3,000 (and growing). Might just work.
