Community Centers Printer Friendly Version
There could be more public community centers in America that people could visit just to exist with other people. These community centers could be open 24/7 to accomodate people of all sleep schedules. Especially as we become more dependent on technology, and spend most of our time sitting in front of a screen, why do we have to sit isolated in our own homes to do it?
In college, I spent most of my time in such wifi enabled common areas, and quite enjoyed it. The most similar thing we have to that right now that I see are coffee shops. these are nice, but it is a requirement to buy a drink in order to sit there, and seating is usually limited. There are also public libraries, but they tend to be dirty, and talking isn't allowed. Obviously, a big challenge would be in keeping the place from being decimated by random miscreants, and keeping it open even though it doesn't offer a product or service. Perhaps the supervisors could charge a small admittance fee, and could be free to remove from the premises any people who destroy the property.
Reward: A more connected community.

Valiant protector Printer Friendly Version
Lots of old ladies alone in their apartments or houses feel vulnerable and they are. Imagine maybe they could feel more secure if.... On the back of their front foor is a device that - if someone makes a commotion at the door, loud knocking or pushing - triggers a tape recordering of a large dog growling ferociously. Could help, if just outside the door on the porch or the landing there was a pretty large, empty of course, dog food bowl with MAX written on the side.

Name Tags Printer Friendly Version
If everyone wore name tags when they went out of their house, then maybe we would be more friendly to each other. Then there would be no reason not to say "hi Bob" when walking down the street. Or "hey Sara" how's it going, while you are in the elevator.
