An organization to bring all of our greatest tools of awareness, communication and empathy together and help prevent crises of all kinds across the globe, focusing on human interaction and open-source mobile and internet.
Absolutely, I think one of the most powerful advantages of an organization like G.I.A. would be its ability to take advantage of a wide scope of technologies, from the cheapest radio made with spare parts to pre-fabricated link ups. It could be an actuator of any form of communication and awareness that you could conceive.
If internet and mobile communication are the greatest tools we have right now to spread awareness of impending crisis, the ability to institute ad-hoc networks in regions previously without connectivity is going to be vital. I think refining this tech into a package that is easy to distribute world wide will be key.
I think this is a great suggestion in that it takes advantage of the greatest method of helping prevent a crisis, communication, and the greatest tool we have for communicating, the internet. Increasing cellular coverage and internet availability in low-income countries will allow for greater awareness of what's happening. It will also allow for faster, more efficient response and organization in order to stop the crisis.
