Could we be making more progress, faster? Are there problems to solve, or capabilities to gain that are "unlocks" for the next steps of civilization?
Imagine writing down 99 problems for your domain. Alongside a million other people! Now make it easy to gather the problems into maps. It’s a network of problems!
Or let’s start from the top. How do we chart - and fund - humanity’s challenges, from cracking climate to exploring the cosmos?
The point is not to agree; some solutions will seem like problems to others. The point is to coordinate with those solving similar problems, to find and fund new opportunities.
A good way to figure out if such maps are useful is by prototyping them. For that, we need an app that allows you to contribute, fork, and iterate.
The main $60k prize is for creating such an app.
[Or, you can constructively tell us why we’re wrong and win a $1k bounty.]
Create a fun app to open source collaboration on maps of problems (Miro-style) through crowdsourcing (Wikipedia-style) and crowdfunding (Kickstarter-style).
The app should allow the creation of maps that are …
