Gulf Oil Spill Design Jam 5/25-6/1

[tweetmeme]

  • Are you an innovator?
  • Are you a designer?
  • Are you an ideator with ideas swirling around in your head?
  • Are you an engineer?
  • Are you a creative collaborator?
  • Are you concerned about the short & long-term impact of this oil spill?
  • If you can identify with any one of these statements, then you are cordially invited to participate in a one week Twitter event to invite the collective creative expertise to step in and solve this crisis.  YOU CAN make a difference – participate in this DESIGN JAM …

    HOW DOES IT WORK?

    Post your initial ideas on Twitter using the hashtag:  #oilspilljam.  Use your blogs as a way to capture more details about your ideas and post the link to Twitter.

    Search the Twitter tag #oilspilljam, glance through ideas, comment, and build upon the ideas of others.  This collective collaboration is a platform that could produce critical solutions to solve the most devastating man-made disaster ever experienced in this part of the world.

    WHAT CAN I DO?

    Besides participating in the jam, you can spread the word.  We have the memorial holiday weekend coming up in the US this weekend, but time is not our friend with this crisis. It’s a simple three-step process:

    1. POST your thoughts on Twitter via #oilspilljam
    2. COLLABORATE by reviewing others’ posts and building upon those ideas
    3. SPREAD the word via whatever networks you have: Twitter, Blog, LinkedIn, FaceBook, email, etc…

    WHY IS IT CALLED A “JAM”?

    It’s like a bunch of musicians coming together in a jam session – each one being inspired by the other to collectively create something new that the individuals could never have created.  This concept was inspired by the “innovation jam” events hosted within the IBM corporation  (giving credit where credit is due).

    MAKE A STATEMENT!  HAVE AN IMPACT!

    Let’s see if we can generate enough ideas and enough buzz to capture the attention of BP, the US Government, and key decision makers.  With your participation and by helping to spread the word, we CAN make a statement and we CAN have an impact!  What are you going to do?
