The STUPID CALENDAR OF EVENTS.....divide and conquer....

 Look, I know this sounds stupid; because we all live different lives....but when I was campaigning; I wanted to impose a county wide CALENDAR OF EVENTS and post it so that EVERY EVENT IN THE COUNTY was posted, public, private, and in between.....Perhaps a database of opportunities free and costly, educational and artistic, loving and caring; for the public at large to see and have the timely opportunity to plan and participate in along the way....

 

Imagine every single event in our county being posted on a timeline of events....with filters for everything.....empowering the people to see everything from a philanthropic event to a public meeting....Perhaps incorporating a map of the events too would be amazing.... 

It would also be a wonderful way to asses how time management is being annihilated along our lives...................168 hours in a week, countless events, division of the people, showing how the people are being pulled in countless directions...

If I want to figure out what's going on in the big picture; I have to visit countless websites, seek out different lanes of events, and by that point; there's a chaotic view of opportunities that seems exhausting to visit..... 

We live in a day and age of distractions; overwhelming information overload, and divide & conquer mentality. Every venue is fighting for quotas of people to survive. 

Yet, the distractions keep us unable to engage in a united manner....I believe that there should be one day a year that is totally dedicated to UNITING our county at large outside of a 'festival' but on the level of a CONVENTION.....where all these venues are able to have a space and engage the public at large. 

 

Funny part; we have thousands of not for profit agencies; we have thousands of public entities; we have thousands of private businesses that would be tasked at UNITING for the good of all. Moreover; the reality of countless redundancies that work against eachother and divide the public at large vying for power and control over lanes of social service dynamics would be forced to merge, reduce wasteful spending habits, and unite for the common good of all.....

 

So; while we continually and cyclically divide and conquer the people to points of disenfranchisement and disillusionment; I once again ask our local government to start logging, databasing, and analyzing the waste and cut the fat off the game....SOMEONE NEEDS TO GET BACK TO THE BASICS and BEGIN FILTERING MORE OF THIS CRAP! Start simple.....make the calendar for EVERYONE DOING BUSINESS/EVENTS IN CUYAHOGA COUNTY....The word will spread, accessibility, planning, and engagement will increase...and the public at large should be able to provide feedback on events....but in due time; the information should lead to amazing realizations; tons of engagement that decreases division of the public at large; and increase communication across the board openly and publicly for our people to enjoy the world around them....It seems like facebook is trying to do this in it's own way....but our county should do it for the long term.....

We cannot change anything if we cannot have some transparency and communication that empowers the players to engage the realities and hidden games that entities portray upon the people at large. IT's time for simple, effective changes...that empower our citizens to unite!!!! (Or even to participate when they cannot be at the events.) Just saying.
