Organizing people in real time in a community to improve health.

I had the pleasure of meeting with Joe Edelman at Groundcrew this week. Groundcrew is a new service that matches need with human ability in real time in a given location. It can connect to Twitter, Facebook, and Foursquare. Groundcrew is agnostic. It can be used for any reason to organize real time meetups.

How can we leverage Groundcrew to improve health?

Emergently disseminating vaccines to a community.
Organizing emergency services in disasters.
Organizing pick up games for sports.
Sellers at urban farmers markets can announce their crops.

There are always many other use cases. Super excited to see where this platform goes.
