Start by not labelling them ''seniorprenrurs' in this ageist society.

Daniel Marsh commented on the Topic Seniorpreneurs

IMHO, some lessons from asset-based community development where rather than trying to 'pick winners', the approach would be examine what seniorprenuers are passing the market test (being successful financially, socially and personally for the entrepreneur) and then look at barriers to growth of these businesses in that locale. Local and regional governments could address matters under their control and such an examination would provide an evidence base for advocacy for any systemic changes required of Cwlth.

They have more experience and network. More tailored programs to help them would be nice. Professor Alex Maritz from La Trobe University has done some good reserach about the topic.

Very happy for you to Bruce Muirhead.

Just to add, I see the current Marriage Equality Vote as an example of large-scale or population-wide crowdsourcing and in many ways it is the grand litmus test for this form of decision making as there are no experts and every individual's opinion is considered as valid as the next person's.

In addition, various lobby groups have been very publicly engaged in this process in an attempt to sway public opinion and it could be argued that some of the tactics used by these groups are somewhat less than savory and are not in the public's best interest. 

Hence, it will be very interesting to see if the results of the public vote translate into a real change in government direction or policy. For example, if the "Yes" vote does win, will this change the minds of more conservative politicians and will they vote for marriage equality or vice a versa?

If the results of the public-vote are echoed in federal parliament it may well become a new way of solving intractable political debate and may help renew the public's involvement and faith in Australian politics. 

On the otherhand, if our federal politicians disregard the public's wishes in this matter it will no doubt only lead to further disillusionment in our existing political system.

The future will be about science, technology and innovation, or not at all. The developments in science and technology define the progress of other sectors. The Commonwealth Government’s new direction reflects this view and puts fresh emphasis on research and science capabilities.

MindHive takes pride in being one of the pioneers in crowdsourcing initiatives which would help shape the future of technology in Australia. We understand that a collective problem-solving approach may produce better results compared to the classic “closed doors” approach. This way, we promote an open process that empowers individuals to exercise the power of democracy to re-define policymaking in key areas.
