Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Got an idea for a specific focus? Or just a boilerplate statement of global problems and everyone have a go at hashing out solutions?

Right now compiling all the diaries, and the ensuing discussions, in one place would be a good start.  

Then abstract the various Topics: GM, water depletion, transference of food crops to bio-fuel production, rural economic diversity, overpopulation, Climate Change, & etc with their associated diaries/comments -- something like I did here.  (which I then let lapse, my bad.)

Then construct a flow-chart or Fuzzy-Cognitive Map or some other Modeling tool to provide a Top-Down and Bottom-Up Index.

Goal: provide a quality Information Source for position papers and decision-makers.

OK, one, I'll pool the diaries together into the Occasional Series box.

Next, I think a debate might be the occasion for identifying the issues & topics, as well as sketching the outlines of solutions (debatable of course).

Then attempt the type of tool you suggest, for which we don't have a slot. The ETwiki was supposed to do this kind of thing, but it's spam-botted to hell.

The fuzzy-cognition tool I may leave to others... ;)

This week is going to be too busy for me to devote to non-money making activities.  I'll do what I can, when I can.

I'll start with the first part, then we'll see about the second?

If you can put up the Debate Box and whatever you can find I'll plug away filling the gaps.

As to the second, I know how to do that.  The challenge will be getting enough time to do it.  But that's OK.  My feeling is it's better to start with high-quality but limited rather than lots and lots of nuthin.
