“We choose to go to the Moon! We choose to go to the Moon in this decade and do the other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard; because that goal will serve to organize and measure the best of our energies and skills, because that challenge is one that we are willing to accept, one we are unwilling to postpone, and one we intend to win...” President John F. Kennedy
“Moonshot” refers to any awesome, fantastic, almost impossible goal to be achieved, often through the use of new technologies, in order to solve a vexing, complex, and/or wicked problem.
Moonshots require people to “think different,” approaching a problem in a radically different fashion, rather than making incremental improvements to an existing system. What are the vexing, complex and wicked problems that face our community? Are there any Moonshot solutions that just might be crazy enough to work?
At this Moonshot Social, we will invite candidates to share their “moonshot ideas” in an open, respectful, and non-confrontational setting, as well as let the public to ask questions and proffer their own ideas.
