While it is important to address the safety of women in public spaces, many incidents of abuse and assault actually take place in environments that are assumed to be safe - homes, schools etc, and are perpetuated by people who are known to the victim

Eugene commented on Create an Epidemic of Safety

I really like the idea of an "epidemic of safety".... There are many good projects on the ground to address the issue of women protection and empowerment... However, for these projects to spread and grow, it needs a "mode of contagion", a way to repeat itself and expand the scope easily and quickly. The key is providing a platform which will allow momentum to grow and ultimately explode once it passes the tipping point.

Eugene commented on myStory.com - an online autobiography for everyone

Hey Ashley, yes, absolutely. should be a service to print a physical book based on the online version.

Hey Annie, again, yes, absolutely. I think family members should be able to contribute content as well. Content can be in the form of pictures, videos, scanned images etc... However, the differentiation of myStory from Facebook is that these content should follow a structured flow that makes sense from a biography perspective. Otherwise, it will just be a mash of information like we already have on social networks.

Eugene commented on To speak freely and be heard

Hi Nick, I agree with your point absolutely. I think we can broaden our view of communication as well. It may not be just verbal communication - it can be through writing, through art, putting together collections of their memories etc etc... The issue of helping young people listen better is tougher in my opinion. I think ultimately only people of a certain life stage / age can really empathize with others of their same age group. So one area to look at is really how to broaden their connection to other seniors, to make new friends and keep old ones...
