How can we create meaningful solutions when there is no "big data" to inform how to deploy and prioritize solutions?

Physician, CDC veteran, former tech analyst and homeland security advisor, Joel Selanikio, co founder of DataDyne.org, shares how he and his team have created magpi.com, the most widely adopted mobile data open access software in the world of international development. Magpi overcomes obstacle to getting better data for health and other programs. A major component is SSWFt (self-service, web-based, freemium tech) approach to technology use, adoption, and funding for international development.

With more than 14,000 users in more than 170 countries, it empowers a range of data-informed solutions in regions of the world where such information is dangerously scarce.

OK, make that non-existent.

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
