I want to include the following example because I find it very successful in promoting members of a community to stop and think of something more ephemeral outside of their everyday lives and interact with their environment:

Carola commented on Simplify international donations

Hi Michael, Thank you for sharing the bone marrow donors world wide link. I was not aware of it. Having had to search for a match for my boyfriend I found Hospitals and bone marrow transplant centers have access to international information and there is such thing as a world bank of marrow. Some countries don't have a donor center or barrow bank so when you are looking for a specific nationality/ethnicity it becomes more difficult if there isn't a local bank.

Hello Vincent,

Thank you for your comment. I proposed the concept along with a supportive website and/or partnering up with existing site(s) such as marrow.org which already calls a robust set of educational content and database about existing bone marrow drives. For example, O.S 10.6 already has apps available for computers....so I envision in the future apps/urls will have a common ground and it would be interesting to design for that middle ground. In this case, whatever is more accessible to the vast majority would be best.

Thank you Gabby and Eva for your comments. Jim, I was very inspired by how you organized yourselves at the office and wanted to figure out a tool to help groups and individuals reach the information easily and effectively as well as share the information with you contacts with a few clicks.
