How to become a super hero

March 30, 2008

Last week, I was invited to a meeting with Bill Buxton at Montreal’s Society for Arts and Technology. During that meeting, we informally discussed collaborative experience design. One of the questions raised was: why aren’t today’s content creation tools truly collaborative. One of the main reasons seems to be that modern society is built on Pillars of Ego. I’m still thinking about this, but the main point is: we all want to be heros.

Now, here’s a very tangible way for all of us to truly become super heros. And it’s really easy: fill up a form, and you could save a life.

Here’s a poor man’s screencast showing how to register to the local stem cell donor registry in Quebec, Canada. It’s so easy that you can even do it from your iPhone. For a slightly better encoding quality, visit http://blip.tv/file/786438 .

Emru is still looking for a matching donor. So are many other patients. Please visit healemru.com, visit your local registry’s web site, fill up the consent form and register, today. It’s really that easy.
