Help social entrepreneurs drive change    Make government more transparent    Provide quality education to African students    Create real-time natural crisis tracking system    Build real-time, user-reported news service    Drive innovation in public transport    Make educational content     available online for free    Create more efficient landmine removal programs    Work toward socially conscious tax policies    Build better banking tools for everyone    Collect and organize the world’s urban data    Encourage positive media depictions of engineers and scientists    Promote health monitoring and data analysis    Enhance science and engineering education    Create real-world issue reporting system    Create genocide monitoring and alert system

The scattered nature of these “surviving ideas” gives us pause.  Several of them should have been grouped into a Collective Intelligence category, many are so far down in the weeds we have to wonder about the substance of the process by which this final list was derived.
