I’m not sure how Solve for X forum would be able to encourage and arrange the average folks who just happen to have brilliant ideas to come together and discuss the stuffs of fantasies that might just fly in real world, but as Steve Jobs’ Apple commercial “Think Different” has been promoting that the crazy ones might be just the kind of people that would positively change the world. Solve for X is a project which Google has been working on. Just now Google has released Solve for X’s website and videos. The website is at wesolveforx.com. The video right after the break introduces you to Google’s Solve for X project.
Perhaps, Google’s Solve for X might only reach out to the people who may have brilliant ideas to come together and promote what might change the world. For an example, the X might be something down to earth as finding clean water for the poorest nations to something up in space as in starting a space voyage for humankind. You never know! Nonetheless, I don’t know for sure how different Solve for X might be if one compares it against TED.
I hope Solve for X would allow the average folks as your next door neighbor (or even yourself) to participate in the project somehow. You never know someone out there, perhaps your next door neighbor or even yourself might just happen to have crazy idea that might change the world in a very big way! Nonetheless, it seems Solve for X does include average folks in its equation somewhat as it allows you to post your own Solve for X talks using Google Plus. In truth, I haven’t tried to do such a thing, therefore I don’t even know how one would be able to use Google Plus to start a Solve for X talk! Do you?
