Here's a shout out to something I got in my email to today. OpenIDEO (an opensourced innovation platform) has just started a new challenge to figure out how to rapidly help communities transition into renewable sources of energy. Anyone can create an account and contribute in whatever phases of development they like. Here is a trailer for how OpenIDEo works:



Here is the schedule for this challenge:

December 11: Research phase ends
January 14: Idea phase ends
January 21: Feedback phase ends
February 2: Refinement phase ends
February 9: Evaluation phase ends
February 10: Announcement of top ideas
February 17: Impact phase begins

I think they might like what some permie-minded people have to say!
