The Mark Cuban Stimulus Plan !

In response to this from Mark Cuban ,here is my Synopsis of B-Plan in the form of a comment !!


Hi Mark,
Thanks for this cool and great opportunity !!
I am Rajan from India,a major in Computer Science (graduating May’09),with no problem in RE-LOCATION.Looking your rules remind me of a concept I thought about after Terrorist Attacks in Mumbai.

 

Title: *** “WHEN CELL PHONE BECOMES GUN” ***

Meaning: Not literally,but yea the features added will make 911 Emergency Services useless.

Jobs:Will offer thousands of JOBS globally.

Revenue/Profits:I promise you,you won’t have to wait even 60 days after its launched.

Setup Time:Will take bit long,at least 6 months,to be operational city wise (Developing and Infrastructure setting up),once launched,it’s kind of one time investment apart from expansion and improvement.

Causes: REDUCING CRIME TO A GREAT GREAT EXTENT, HELPS PREVENTING TERRORISM, and HELPS CATCHING FUGITIVES AND CRIMINALS and at the same time, can be used for Entertainment purposes (for extra costs) and Ads Independent + Creating hundreds and thousands of jobs globally.

If you thing Youtube,911 Emergency Services etc as next big thing,,THIS COULD BE NEXT.
Now, whats the IDEA ? :
Ever wondered the possibilities of a cell phone, in the prevention of crime? Yes, many of you do. How? If someone attacks you, you dial emergency services (like 911) and ask for help, but then it might take like 15 to 30 seconds at times to report etc. What else? Take a very simple example, have you seen movie “Taken”? If not, please do see it .Let me brief it a bit – “a girl is taken, but at the same time, she reports every detail about the kidnapper to her dad who is an ex-Intelligence officer and on that basis the kidnapper is traced and girl is saved” ,it’s a movie and pretty fictional but the point is that girl was lucky enough to convey her message runtime without any delay to her dad and that saved her, had she depended on gun ( she could have harmed herself too ),had she depended on 911 (it could have taken long enough or she could never had a chance) .So, everything revolves around time latency/delay and the amount/form of information conveyed.
It will be a software,installed in one’s cell phone ( on subscription basis ),giving it the power to fight crime/protection ,backed up by a smart Infrastructure,which will help making this all, very much possible.
If AT&T and Verizon makes 10,it won’t make less than 6 after an year of launch globally.I foresee it ,that BIG !!
If the synopsis impressed you,please shoot me an email for details.Sorry for the brevity .Please let me know any doubt or further queries through email or comments here and I will be more than happy to discuss the same.

Thank you !! Thank you again for this cool thing here ..I am an OpenSource guy,having done online internship at One Laptop Per Child (OLPC – MIT Media Labs) .I have almost a DOZEN of IDEAS which are truly INNOVATIVE,Innovative to the extent that they face 0 competitors..All technology based..

10 things you can do before/on Nov4 to bring people out to Vote !!

So! ,less than 5 days left .. and I am sure most of Americans have made up their mind as in ,whom to vote for .The race for White House is tightest ever , but we should keep in mind “Not to trust any Polls” ,they are nothing more than an illusion …Even now,there are several people who are undecided/independent and many who intend not to vote ..
And as of now,our target must be to bring them out to vote ,VOTE for America !!
Here are some thoughts which came to me while I was attending a boring lecture of mine,so I penned them down and would like to share the same ..

Thing 1 – On the day of election,take with you 3 other people from different families ,perhaps 3 families itself .A chain of 3 can help connect whole nation.Best would be,if you can take with you people who were confused or not willing to vote .

Thing 2 – This one is for girls 😛 ,well !! girls do ask your guy/boy friend(s) to vote and might accompany you.Its a fact ,guys will take talk from girl more seriously than some talk from just another guy.

Thing 3 – Use your Phone answering machine as a tool to convey your message to vote,you can use your home phones for this purpose and tell people calling you that you will be voting on Nov4 and want the person calling to vote too.In a funny tone,you might want to add that if the person calling wants to hear from you,he/she must pledge to vote 🙂

Thing 4 – Okay!!,if you run a company,ask your employees to vote or if you are a Professor/Teacher ask your eligible students to vote,I mean you can always request someone below in hierarchy to vote,the things can be taken vice-versa too.Say,if a student knows that his teacher does not vote or is fed up with current Political situation,he/she can ask for the same.This will perhaps carry more impact.

Thing 5 – Now,this one is very easy to do,but bit tedious to implement.What I mean to say is that create some Posters(2 types) ,1-simple ones using RED-BLUE color (with more Red into it) such that you appear to be independent while 2-McCain posters ..Now search for locations where people tend to queue or stand for a while like Supermarket’s cash counter place,Gas station,etc etc and with permission of owner just paste the same ,if he is a McCainiac paste the McCain poster else keeping our prime objective open ,ask them to vote !! Here,Let the Color speak ..
Now,if you are pretty creative you can create the Comics style poster,with cartoons thing etc,so that it catches eye and people give few seconds to it ..

Thing 6 – Halloween !!,don’t miss the opportunity to use this awesome day for such a good purpose to save the Democracy of AMERICA.Simple Angel/Evil – Voter/Non Voter analogy can be used and posters etc can be set up in the Halloween costume shops.Also during celebration,something creative can be thought of.

Thing 7 – Edit/Create a signature in your Personal emails,Facebook/MySpace Status messages,IM status message etc and try to spread the word and convey your thoughts on the importance of voter.Best is, make feel as if voters are the winners while people not voting are loosers “L” .

Thing 8 – Promote your brand image,o! yes .. you can improve your brand image if all your employees have pledged to vote.You can create posters etc (If you are an entrepreneur ) and ask people to vote + let them know that “This company employs employees ,cent% of whom have pledged to vote” ,its kind of way the companies feel proud of them being green.

Thing 9 – Collect some money or something and try posting an Ad to vote! on some Financial News papers,such that it gives impression that every vote counts and a good government is need of the hour and to take America out of current financial crisis .

Thing 10 – You can ask,as a group or society,club etc to the owners of Cinema Halls,Theaters etc to post at least a TEXT Ad before the beginning of movie,this will target youth etc who many times just don’t care about voting and take it casually .But the Ad must be inspiring enough(even Text) such that it helps people motivating.Since,its not promotion rather something for countries benefit.I believe that Cinema Theater owners etc won’t mind the same and might even do the same for free..

So,these were some points,some thoughts of mine ..some easy,some bit tedious.. but might eventually help get the purpose solved to some extent ..
Hope it helps.

Few Blogging Tips !

[Original Post on July15’08 at McCainNow.com]
Hi everyone,Though many of you are professional bloggers out here and much much experienced than me,but still I would like to drop few tips which might help your blog coming up in Google Search.
1-Title the article ,as if a person might be using those keywords for searching something.Generalize the same.Just get into the boots of visitors and think what keywords you might be using to search something which your article contains and this will give you title of article.Adding TAGS to the same is very important and add maximum of them ( all Nouns at least).
2- You can improve the rank of your blogs by increasing the number of high-quality sites that link to your blog .For example , Letsgetthisright.com is soon gaining high popularity with 80,000 hits (and Google does not ignores it),so if somehow your blog is linked from LGTR,you will get a high rank in Google search for sure….Plus help others to be helped,collaborate to rise high where I mean that post links to other similar blogs and ask others to post link to your blog (its a collaborative process based on mutual understanding and the aim to achieve common goals. ) . To make picture more clear see this : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PageRank ( SEE only the IMAGE and the TEXT below it — no need to go through entire content ).
3-Use/Write unique stuff .. I mean something about which stuff does not exist on web .. or may be you can use double meaning words … for ex : ” PALIN EXPOSED ” ,exposed is something used for negative meaning generally and many people to know more about Palin might be searching using this set of keyword I am for sure .. but ENGLISH says that Exposed simply means,that “to make known, disclose, or reveal (intentions, secrets, etc.).” , now here you can tell positive points,her agendas etc etc about her …….Its kind of strategy used by many .. the Double Meaning Word Strategy to catch attention..
I hope it helped a bit at least.If it did? ,then Let’s Get This Right !!

Read People’s mind to increase Donations!- through FAQ’s

[Original Post on June07’08 at McCainNow.com]
Hello Friends,
Now,I would like to discuss something very important ,which covers Donations and Allowing people to know their candidates aspects more strongly ,its a known fact that both these things are directly proportional to each other..Its a natural fact that if next year my friend stands for Congress ,I am going to vote him/her, and donate at the same time .WHY? Because he/she is my friend and I know about him/her.Now to know about a person,there is a section called “About”,which is nothing more than modified Resume/CV.I don’t say that such a page is not needed but it should be presented in such a way that the next link which user clicks at is that of “Donate now”..There is a need of Summary to Entire website ..I hope you are getting what I mean to convey.User is very busy,no time to glance entire website ,no time to read entire Bio about the candidate.So,whats the solution ?
Solution is a FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions) ..at the moment,this is the best solution I could think of,I will continue thinking but FAQ is something which meets the criteria as a solution to above mentioned problems ..
Questions like :
Why should I donate for XYZ ?
I am a College student,how will XYZ benefit me?
I am not a rich guy,will donations less than $5 suffice ? (One can frame it better,and questions like this will invite MANY SMALL DONATIONS = HUGE SUM )
What are hidden traits of XYZ,about which we are unaware of ..?
Why XYZ stood for elections and entered Politics ?
list goes on ………………………..A well Framed FAQ is something equivalent to entire website,in the most presentable manner and Quickest way to browse website.It needs to read voter’s mind and reply instantaneously.All categories of voters and all possible questions they might have in mind must be considered and well thought upon to frame a mind reader FAQ,which will not only build trust for that candidate but get him/her votes and donations.

Let me know,what you feel about the same.Thanks !
