Hi, Seth. Sorry for my late response! And thanks for the info. The progress in your city is encouraging, but at the same time, it seems that a major challenge is making all these collaborative efforts more cohesive (and, perhaps, getting more people involved to reach a critical mass?)
There are so many good ideas on openIDEO in the inspiration stage as well as in the conception projects posted so far. But I'm left wondering as to how to bring it all together.
Nice post, Seth. In your opinion, as a Detroiter, do you see the outlook improving for the city? I encountered some Detroit-based initiatives in some of the inspiration posted on OpenIDEO, and I'm wondering how successful these initiatives, and others, have been in bringing people together and improving vibrancy (whatever the term may mean). Or is it too soon to tell?
