Grants/PRAYING FOR YOU
Describe the project you are proposing as clearly as possible in just five sentences.
For the age of personal devices assistance(PDA),peoples are building human concerning networks based on the new wireless infrastructures, such as iPhone, iPad, e-book...etc. PRAYING FOR YOU project is a global praying collaborating on creating content for human concerning networks in human hearts. Every one who was, is, will be depressed in heart can send a help message on the web site follows the spirits of Creative Commons. Every one who in the world who see the depressed message, can give encourage text on the web site follows the spirits of Creative Commons. "Just several words can save a soul" is purpose behind the project PRAYING FOR YOU.
Detail the tangible project output (e.g., paper, blog post, written materials, video/film, etc.; this would be in addition to the final written report that successful grant recipients will be expected to deliver to CC at the conclusion of the project).
PRAYING FOR YOU has a great potential to generate many CC licensed Resources based on human loves. As all submitted texts to the website to be built will follow the spirit of Creative Commons for free sharing and spreading love for all of the world. “Love everyone as God love you” is the most important output of this project. Possible output except praying texts and love on blogs: web links of other related praying web sites, graphics, voice praying content, essays, slides, and video created by participants in the project PRAYING FOR YOU. With the texts and possible outputs collected inthis project would like answer the questions: can human love networks being built in limited text words? can one give a help through the limited text words with no national and racial limitions? How human use the shared text to care the other people who may not know him before?
A white paper would be written with love. A research conference paper related this human concerning networks using portbal device mobile communication technology, such as iPhone, iPAD, PDA,e-book,etc., may be submitted and presented in IEEE International Conference on Communications ICC2011.
Describe the community you are targeting. How would the project benefit the community?
The project targets communities who need human concerning and loves and wish to setup human love interactivities. The benefit to the communities is providing a common concerning area for giving and accepting concerns and loves. The texts left for public can be used for the future human generations and benefit for love lasting for ever. For the text contribution authors in this project who may have awards on heaven because of his donation of loves.br />
I am a human in the world, so I think I should give love back to the world. If everyone love each others, the communities will become a community—just as the world. My relationship with the community(the world) is a member.
I am a volunteer prayer of Radio Veritas of Asia, Chinese Section. Praying text is very helpful for whom experienced disaster, job lost, divorced marrage, family estrangement, hungry, crisis, poor, fail, depress…etc. In my 935 praying experiences for whom I may not know, saving a soul is the best thing. I can feel the soul from death to live from my praying text. Just several limited words, one’s heart can be healed. So I think I am the best individual to lead this project.
How will you measure and evaluate your project’s impact - on your main participants? Other contributors? On the larger community?
The later responsed texts when their thanks, appreciations, healing experences explored on the web site or send from email to me. Then I will apply the analytic tool to numerically indicate the project’s impact, and show the details on main participants, other contributors and on various small human defined communities.
How many participants do you expect to be involved in your project? How will you seek and sustain their involvement?
I wish as many people as possible to participate in creating text content as the project can hold. All the human beings in the world are wlecome to post praying asking and giving texts. I will do my best to pray for the project can help as much people as possible. Also I will pray for whom need my praying words. In my experiences, many peoples who see my praying text will come back to seek my praying and their need for love from the world sustain their involvement.
Describe how your project will benefit Creative Commons' mission to increase the amount of creativity (cultural, educational, and scientific content) in "the commons".
My project will benefit Creative Commons' mission to increase the amount of human love networks buildng creativity in "the commons". The text can be shared for love spreading, the peoples in the world can share their concerns for each others. The common hearts for love are expected to be increased based on this project.
Describe what technologies and tools your project will use. What kinds of technical skills and expertise do you bring to the project? What are your technical needs?
In my volunteer praying work experiences, the blog I used is good but the server is not stable. Because in a catholic institute, the buldget is limited. In this project, I am planning to set up a praying blog on google cloud server networks for saving money and get stable maitainance for long term operations and extending the love networks coveraging area. Because google provide on line text translating, searching, coorperating whriting, instant global news,…etc., these new technical skills and coming new technical skills may help prayers to know the disasters or news details soon and expect whom may need help and praying. My technical needs is learning how to use open source code to enhance blog functions for peoples who need praying with soon searchable function to the suitable texts for the wounded hearts. Of course, the database Mysql is the lesson I may have to learn. Stable backup data server hardware should be set up in this project for keeping the praying messages. I need to purchase a good server computer.
What challenges do you expect to face, and how do you plan to overcome them?
Some challenges I expect to face: 1.blog design for good seeing and confort for heart wounded peoples 2.easy and simple for small screen explore, such as iPhone,PDA,iPAD,e-book…etc. 3.internet advertising 4.set up buldget and daily content maintaining fee
Corresponding plans for overcome the above challenges: 1.ask help from my colleagues for volunteer praying, design new suitable blog with new technical skills. 2.outsourcing programmers for adapting contents screen format to coming new PDAs. 3.use google advertising and announce thorugh church communication networks. 4.apply grant as this project
How do you plan to sustain your project after the Creative Commons funding has ended? Detail specific plans. How do you plan to raise revenue to continue your efforts in the future?
PRAYING FOR YOU uses the bare minimum maintain resources. All parying texts content can be created by volunteer prayers for free on the internet. All human love giving and accepting networks used are free. The following costs for the project may happened on the maintaining fee for each year. PRAYING FOR YOU may ask donation and evaluate it's needs after the Creative Commons funding has ended. We will ask praying volunteers in the world to plan how to sustain the love praying texts for the next generations. Asking donations from ISP companies is also a plan to be discussed for future maintainces.
How can this project be scalable, or have a scalable impact?
PRAYING FOR YOU project can be scalable. For a stable running of this project as a center, the linking web sites with other praying web site can build a larger scale cross nations and human races. Love network has no scaleable impact.
What resources and support do you expect Creative Commons to provide to your project to ensure its success (if any)?
PRAYING FOR YOU expect Creative Commons to give grant support and help the promotion of the project. For example, open the website to whom may need praying and human loves in connection to the global CC members. Use and education support of Open source code is another need in this project. If Creative Commons can help to invite more volunteer programmer to help the web site, that can help love spread to more peoples through new coding technical skills.
Describe how your organization currently communicates with its community members and network partners. (100 words)
Many volunteer prayers currently communicates with community members and network partners through web 1.0 blogs. But very old patients do not know how to use computer because of the internet complexity for old people. This project may help them communicate with their prayers from iPAD or e-book that has a larger viewing screen. Young volunteer prayers need to have a cloud platform as a data base for saving their praying texts through a small PDA, iPhone with limited screen but texts can be enlarged by multi-touch techniques. Some disable peoples or patients can only choose to hear the praying contents, now the volunteer prayers have to communicate with them as visiting face to face. That waist a lot of traffice time and cost. Usually, email and telephone are basic communication tools for community members and network partners now, but we believe web2.0 technique can help more efficient works on human being concern and love networks no matter the ages.
