Circumventing the Language Barrier
Tech literacy is a key component to the success of many of the inspirations here. Meena offered a great starting point with the use of Mobiglyph ( http://bit.ly/fthHZQ ). Can we make this more powerful by adding a translation component?
Language barriers are always a consideration with global issues such as this one. By adding a easy to use translation component to a communication tool like Mobiglyph, users can now reach a much wider audience (with more opportunity for feedback) perhaps through social media.
Making a solution easy to use and understand regardless of how tech savvy the user is will be key in widespread adoption of any solution.
