Here is a sample of what we at OpenSimSim have been working on over the weekend. In this version, we looked at adding comic book elements to help explain the story behind each unique idea generated and give the book a bit of personal character. What do you think of this layout?
The second day at OpenJapan was really great. All nodes and cities were working very efficient and we produced at the end of the day around 70 problem descriptions and ideas. It seems also that OpenJapan was very well published all over the world - we counted around 650 tweets with our hashtag #OpenJapan.
With a lot of energy and a great Red Bull, Pizza and Sushi breakfast we started into the third and final sprint.
THE JAPANESE “AMBASSADOR” - AN INTERVIEW WITH TAKASHI SUGIMOTO
The 72hr work-sprint started in our node in Tokyo where our collaborators at studio-L together with Hiromi Fujii and visitors discussed about the problems that people are facing now in the disaster areas.
Additionally to this local knowledge we had at least one so called “ambassador” in each city node. This ambassador was discussing with the people in the node the feasibility and always watching that the proposals were in-line with Japanese thinking and culture.
In Lisbon we had the pleasure to welcome Takashi Sugimoto. Have a look at his interview.
A massive amount of building materials and time will needed to rebuild the homes and buildings destroyed by tsunami. This proposal looks at the potential that the cleaned vacant land can act as a temporary program that aids the reconstruction of the Japan and jumpstarts a sustainable revolution.
[…] Since the first invitation to organize the event, till the event it was a crazy month to set all up in record time. Everyone in Lisbon loved the event, and was amazed on the number of people participating worldwide.
I’m really proud on what we all achieve, and even more proud to be apart of a such big project on such young age. So all good news!
We Lisbon are ready to continue helping in every way possible, and to continue this global network so needed to make people came together and help each other. […]
It was fantastic working with all of you, looking forward for the next one.
