Just prior to the whole pandemic issue I attempted to bring individuals together to discuss how we can get traction to deploy some very innovative tools and strategies to address climate change, digital divide and urban congestion. (Pandemic preparations were part of the tool kit but not part of the focus then).
We had used the e-Consensus forum in our year long Community Dialogue Process with great results and wanted to update the software and include a phone app. I managed to gather all of the relevant asp files into hostgator but the old system was embedded in frames (remember those?) and the navigation no longer works.
Being a non-techie, it would seem that this should not be a big deal but the software companies I have spoken with want a lot of money and they make it sound like a massive challenge. I need someone that can simply "de-frame" it and allow the navigation to work.
There is an embedded survey tool that is no longer marketed. Big question if it will come up or if it needs to be replaced. Fingers crossed as the software is heavily integrated into the forum screens
If it is not pretty enough that is another issue, right now I want to launch some forums and I am quite happy the way it is laid out, but open to recommendations.
Step 1- diagnose the challenge Step 2- get it running again Step 3- discuss future enhancements
Happy to discuss it in detail. There are videos that explain it and a homepage with all of the website support files/screens available
Building Stronger Communities through Telecommuting
Telecommuting mitigates travel and therefore mitigates the impact of spatial separation. If you provide a Suite of Telecommuting Services that supports your activities electronically you can live anywhere while simultaneously putting people back into our neighborhoods and small towns.
Teleworkers seek social interaction- if they don't get it during the work process they will engage in church, school and other community activities after work. This is a great opportunity for our non-profit community to capitalize on!
Employers that employ STRATEGIC telework become more profitable, reduce facilities (and their emissions) and reduces trips (reducing accidents, energy consumption and emission release).
Telework begins the paradigm shift and moves us closer to the Information Age. In many policy and operational arenas we remain locked in the Industrial mindset.
Tele-Commuter Resources has developed the Distributed City Model that discusses the evolution from our politically defined urban regions to an integrated urban-rural economic service area. At the core is telework. We have built tools and strategies for employer based deployment of telework that aggregate into a regional deployment plan.
Though we are still striving to prove the theories and the value of our tools, there is no question that our direction is right and our hoped for results are inevitable.
We need your help!
We'll work with your schedule.
This is a Virtual Opportunity, with no fixed address.

I really don't know, the initial diagnostics shouldn't take too long as it all worked once...
A commitment to complete each step once that step is engaged. Other steps to be discussed as we go
