Thank you Meena!

Joshua,

This directly relates to the question " How will you keep the people who use your service safe?" Yes it would be ideal if everyone has a smart phone and know how to operate a minisite but my concern is that we might be working with very under-developed area with not much exposure or access to new technology. I think in reference, Dan's Hope idea of using trader and merchant (http://www.openideo.com/open/usaid-humanity-united/ideas/courier-trader-network/) might be a good way to use people power to drive information traffic.

You are right about if this market place with all kiosk / outpost be very visible to the threatening source, it will be terminated. We should bring it 'underground' , maybe build up with youth group and let them be the forefront owner who will go back to report news to their families. The reason why I mention youth group is because I always believe the generation who adapt the fastest and who protect what belongs to them the most is young adults. That way, all virtual skills such as texting internet searching, twitter hashtag, etc are already learnt and ready to implement. But then maybe it is not a good idea to risk the lives of such young people.

What do you think?

Thu commented on Weather Balloons for Real-Time Surveillance

Hi Kenneth,

This is a very interesting concept. And low cost to implement too!

My question are:
- how can we protect the civilians or workers through the task of launching the balloon into space.
- how do we protect the balloon when it is up in the sky. Is it a certain height which can not be reached by weapons? Is it international airspace?

Just some thoughts. I hope these help and will continue to follow your concept.

Thu.
