Message in a Bottle

PRESENTED ON OCT 12, 2015
IN WESTPORT, CT @ VOL 1

Nina Lesiga’s passion is the use travel as a source of empowerment and self discovery. Her passion for beach combing has led her to collect all sorts of items washed up upon the shore near home and during her travels.  Each piece that Nina picked up “called” to her and she didn’t worry about what to do with it. Then one day during a solitary walk on the beach, she found a message in a bottle.  In an instant she knew what to do - she would pay the happiness forward and this decision began a chain of magical connections amongst strangers.

City Message

BY MASSIMILIANO BONACCI
@ VOL 7 ON NOV 21, 2013

Massimiliano Bonacci presenta City Message:

City Message è un circuito di schermi distribuiti nella città e utilizzato per scambiarsi informazioni fra Commercianti, Associazioni, Pubblica Amministrazione e Cittadini, in tempo reale e con l'ausilio anche solo di un semplice smartphone. Noi vogliamo:


• Creare un nuovo strumento di comunicazione dove tutti possano sentirsi partecipi.
• Portare internet e i Social Network nelle piazze e nei negozi, in modo che anche chi non sa usare questi mezzi possa rimanere aggiornato su ciò che accade nella città.
• Aiutare la Pubblica Amministrazione a comunicare con i cittadini.
• Dare visibilità anche alle piccole realtà territoriali.
• Incoraggiare la condivisione e la partecipazione delle persone, alle iniziative del quartiere.

Sono uscito quest'anno da Ericsson, dopo 21 anni di lavoro, dove ho acquisito una discreta esperienza internazionale. L'idea di Citymessage è nata a livello embrionale all'interno dell'Innovation Garage di Ericsson, vincendo anche premi in Silicon Valley come l' "Innova Award". Quando mi sono reso conto che per svilupparla sarei dovuto espatriare, perché non relativa al core business delle attività italiane, ho deciso di prendere la buona uscita come opportunità di far nascere qualcosa nella mia città e nel mio paese!
