The Problem 

We are completely overwhelmed.

Do you ever feel that some of our society's problems are so complex that you can barely comprehend how your community will adequately address them? Do you ever get concerned that some of these problems are just spiraling out of control with no end in sight?

The crisis of our age is that the problems of our modern world are so complex that they surpass our capability as humans to comprehend or develop efficient Interventions to remediate them. Even when working in groups, it's all just too much. 

We can turn this around using modern technologies coupled with a new approach to how we think about, structure and manage our efforts.
