“IfWeRanTheWorld.com is a simple, playful platform that harnesses good intentions and downloads them into tangible, do-able microactions that anyone and everyone can do. IfWeRanTheWorld is about complete transparency – you are what you do. And it is with these same principles that we are developing IfWeRanTheWorld: what you experience today is an early, alpha release of a platform that is rapidly evolving thanks to the actions of a remarkable and growing and talented tribe of unruly nerds and dreamers.” IfWeRanTheWorld was created by Cindy Gallop who is currently on the Advisory Board of URDB (RADAR 004 – URDB)
