help the homeless

Dream type: Transformation

I think that California should help the homeless because first, everyone needs a home. Second, in recent facts 1.6 to 1.7 million people under 18 will experience homelessness each year. Isn't that just sad. If that is not good enough, 1 out of every 3 homeless people are under the age of 18. These are some reasons I think California's future is to help the homeless. Thank you.

California: From Sim to Saved

Dream type: Growth

Thanks to a highly interactive, realistic, and dramatically compelling sim application, negotiations and conflict resolution becomes more available and affordable. In a safe, learning environment, people can see the true scope of a problem and experience how it looks from all stakeholders. Then they can work toward a viable solution, which they can then take to the real world.

Collaboration in the Face of Collapse

Dream type: Collapse

After catastrophic failure in the San Joaquin delta, crippling water shortages strike much of California. Economic failure and mass exodus ensue. The wealthy retreat to fortressed communities. Those of us who stay contend with abject poverty. Yet in the face of such desperation, cooperation and efficiency abound. Food, shelter, and services are shared. I start a community garden with friends, watered through rain catchment and greywater. Materials from the glut of abandoned buildings are scavenged and recycled. Services no longer available from the shuttered private sector nor the bankrupt government are now provided through collaborative efforts and the underground economy

Infrastructure and Exports Restore California as an Economic Power

Dream type: Transformation

High tides flood low-lying areas while a series of desalination power-dikes are built. Most of Los Angeles and the Port of Long Beach adapt to higher seas first. The Golden Gate Northern Rail Dike causes inland ports to close. As a result, a controversial port is being built in Half Moon Bay, and most inland oil refineries now produce biofuel from home-grown algae. Because of expensive importation costs, California has become a major manufacturing state, exporting durable goods, vehicles, clean tech, and bio-pharmaceuticals. The resulting economic growth fuels the sustainable expansion of dry cities to absorb migrations from flooded communities.

Critical Party

Dream type: Transformation

"A sober-minded assessment of risks and resources" leads California to re-valuate the breadth and depth of its cognitive surplus. Now "California knows how to party" even better and my work feels moar like play. I participate in a superstructure called Critical Party QG. We mash up pop culture with stigmergy networks to produce lively collaboration contexts and project coordination strategies. As a Memeticist, I research Other People's Metaphors and measure their semantic integrity. The strongest bridges support most of tomorrow's parties (edge innovations). This is planetary stewardship with SyCC beats (strongly connected components)!

onechange

Dream type: Transformation

I imagine this one person is going to work he heads his car but than he thinks, I will ride my bike to work. Than his friend that lives next door and says to the man ''what are you doing?'' asked the friend he says I am riding my bike to work. His friend says '' I think I will too!''. Then the whole city is changing there ways. Just because one made that thought and rode his bike to work instead of his car. So one choice can change a lot of choices you make.

California and the rebuilding over other states

Dream type: Collapse

My dream is that California will fall to pieces, but we can fix it. Its people, its government, the environment will fail. It's all ready bad enough in the United States. It'll do good to fix the U.S., state by state. We just need more effort in the community. That's why I've come up with the plan to fix everything. We'll start with the most visited places. We'll fix these up with funds we'll borrow from the U.S. Once the places are rebuilt we can fix the rest with the funds from the rebuilt states.

The REAL internet of things! The intelligent underground pipline.

Dream type: Transformation

I've got to get my widgets to market! I load them onto an intelligent, autonomous vehicle which ferries them to The Pipeline hub - an underground "cargo superhighway" which connects the world the way the internet connected us electronically. The products are loaded into a pod, propelled magnetically to a distribution center outside the city which has its own terminal. There the widgets are divided and combined with other widgets and sent on their way, autonomously, to depots around the region. Highways are clearer, the air cleaner. Californian companies manufacture and export the machinery, and generate billions in revenue.

Trash? What's that?

Dream type: Constraint

Every take-out box, packaging, utensils are all compostable, or recyclable. All eating facilities, malls, restaurants, cafeterias have a mandatory recycling program for patrons where there are available containers for recyclables and compost. It will become second nature for Californians to know which are recyclables, compostable, and actual trash, and the norm to see those available containers in all public areas. Also, that all households in California recycle everything that is recyclable, and have very little, to no trash. This dream is already a reality in one Bay Area city, a local mall, and in some homes. Let’s continue this dream.

My dream is to have a society with no criminals

Dream type: Transformation

Tired of seeing mischievous kids stealing candy at stores or them toilet papering peoples houses? What if that was your house that or toilet papered? This path will most likely lead them to being drug dealers and violent gangs. Hello my name is Stanford Midling and I want to help California be a safer place for family, friends, and relatives. I live in a small town called Santa Maria and I heard that someone got decapitated. More and more kids are doing drugs and alcohol and we must do something about it.
