Project: How to Marry the Needs and Offers
This is a continuation of conversation started in another thread but which deserves its own Project.
It seems to me that there are a lot of people out there who wonder what they can do. My interpretation is that this doesn't only mean to sort our the recycle-bins and have short rather than long shower and switch the light off when not in the room, but they also may mean: 'how can I help'?
At the same time there are many ideas for projects that are struggling to start - because they need help. Sometimes that is financial help, but many times they would benefit from a good brainstorming session, or from bouncing the ideas around with other people, or maybe they need an expert help for a few hours every month and maybe somebody could sponsor this expert to actually help them? There are so many possibilities...
But where can one state one's needs, what infrastructure exists, what could (easily) exist if it doesn't already etc...
One thing to try and understand is the Murmurations protocol (mentioned in the thread ...) https://murmurations.network/2022/07/05/what-can-you-build-on-the-murmurations-protocol/
some other links that could be useful
So... what does already exist and serve the purpose or marrying the needs and offers? What could easily exist and what is needed for it to come into being?
Then how to spread it, scale it, grow it so that we can say to everybody who wonders how they could help: ok, put your profile here, tell us what you can do/offer, and see who needs that in your locality or elsewhere? And equally, we can say to struggling projects: tell us what you need, put your profile here, and see who has what you need in your locality or elsewhere?
Then some kind of matching algoritm does its thing, et voila! we get the ball rolling a bit more...
Thoughts? Ideas? Reflections?
