  • What’s Needed When a Whole Community “goes” ONLINE
the engines of pke
  • One to Many
  • ~Amplify single voice, Connect with many.
  • Many to one
  • ~Collector of information funneled to one place.
  • Many to Many
  • ~Multiplicity of concurrent connections
so what is it
So, what is it?
  • PKE is a container of resources and tools and services.
  • PKE is a hub of connectivity for individuals and institutions.
  • PKE is a way to get “life” done online.
  • PKE is a community working together, online.
  • PKE is a place to learn, to do training, to get help in online functioning. And more.
so what else is pke
So, what else is PKE?
  • PKE is the place to fill out and file a zillion forms for government interactions.
  • PKE is the place for government to reach out with up to date information for its citizens.
  • PKE is the place citizens form and maintain organizations to make their community better.
  • PKE is social interaction with anyone anywhere in the region, or in a group.
pke is even more
PKE is even more:
  • PKE is city and county and schools and universities, and health care providers, and businesses and non profits and more...working together BETTER than ever before.
  • PKE is knowing everything that’s going on through a searchable community activity calendar.
  • PKE is learning whatever you need to learn or want to learn. A School for both education and for life.
that s not all but you get the idea a whole community online
That’s not all, but you get the idea... a whole community online
  • PKE is doing what a community does, and doing things in ways that may never have been possible before.
  • PKE brings benefits in enabling what’s already being done and making that more efficient and effective. Plus creating new kinds of interactions, new tools, new services.

Premise of PKE

Information wants to be free, it wants to be also wants to be packaged. Packaged information has added value; the more information is easily available, the more valuable information packaging becomes. In the lives of individuals, there is not enough time to become experts on everything they need to understand to make decisions. The need is there now, which will only become greater, for a third party hand holder service that answers questions of individuals in many many areas of life. Health, legal, governmental interactions, educational, technology use, citizen forums, how to use resources of a community. Basically any service that people need, and some that have never been provided for as yet, can benefit from an intermediary that packages the information on a custom designed basis. This also works in the other direction as institutions and corporations etc need to “reach out” to inform “consumers/citizens” etc in a customized, targeted manner. And to take in data/comments.

why pke
Why PKE?
  • A problem for everyone: Too much info, too many tasks, too little time. And it’s getting harder.
  • Maximize Local Resources through PKE: coordinate, collaborate, eliminate duplication of services.
  • To educate the public in our complex world, requires the best methods, the best media, the best tools, and meeting the public where they increasingly live: online. PKE helps do that job.
  • Institutions are moving online, but none are online specialists; their core functions are other than perfecting online capabilities. It’s appropriate for an online specialist like PKE to work in a community unifying way, to provide online functions and create standards that simplify.
more why pke
More Why PKE?
  • PKE is a “third place”. It provides a “ground of community” that is not just work, is not just home, is not just public space but is somewhere that includes the functions of all three.
  • This third place helps recreate some of the intimacy, connection, and efficiency we treasure, that is found in cities and towns which have a vibrant center.
even more why pke
Even MORE why PKE?
  • Some collection of online functions is inevitable here in southern NM as elsewhere. But will it be the best it can be?
  • The choice is building it according to a comprehensive plan that allows PKE to be all that it can be, or to accept the kind of development that occurs without the guidance of informed and comprehensive planning.
  • The online world can and will look like Colonias if we don’t act to create PKE with intention and purpose.
5 big reasons for pke
1) Health services

2) Citizens and Government

3) Educational services

4) Technology how-to services

5) Local Community Building online

5 Big reasons for PKE

1) Consumers of Health Services need customized current accessible edited information to make informed decisions about medical care. Understanding their condition, their medications, possible treatments, tests, likely outcomes, possible providers etc. Health care providers, governmental and other institutions, insurers, Health Plans etc need an effective outreach to the health care consumer. Effective efficient information interactions will result in better care, and

will affect costs positively.


2) Citizens and governments need to exchange information in effective ways in a variety of venues including regulatory functions. PKE meets these needs and more such as the means for new methods of democratic government. Packaging of these exchanges can increase the signal to noise ratio in both directions.


3) Educational Services are information based; various institutions both public and private provide these services. In every instance, better packaging, ie, more customized interaction, means better access, availability, usage, content, etc. Packaging allows removal of duplication of educational services, and provision of those presently obscure or lacking.


4) Technology how-to services. It is in the interests of all who provide information through technological means, and depend on the quality or effectiveness of those means, that users of that technology are proficient in its use.

5) Local Community Building online, is a complex undertaking, which requires the centrality of tools and services that PKE provides. Any community has many parts, places and spaces to provide for all the needs of the community members. This is true for online community as well. PKE will not only supply the “common ground” for online community… the online infrastructure if you will…. but also the means to connect and cross fertilize various online community spaces.

Take a moment to relax…

Okay, now back to the show.

a problem
Here’s a real world problem, with an example of how PKE provides a solution.

The push/pull approach to information: Institutions gather information from constituents, process the information, and emit licenses, permits, services, etc. They also gather information from the public and elsewhere to make decisions, form plans and regulate. That is a pull flow of information.

Institutions also have a need to push information out to a select, or non select group. The Public needs to be informed. Yet educating the public requires an ability to push information to people that may or may not be interested. Or know the value of the information before they decide whether to receive it or not.

A Problem
pke the solution
There’s clearly a role here for a manager and enabler of this two way information flow. There’s a GAP between citizen and government that an information and media ombudsman enabler networker, such as PKE, can bridge.PKE the Solution

social networks
Can be meta mind for problem solving

Multiperson social problem solving arrays considered as form of artificial intelligence

We are not one person secluded from the rest of the world kept apart by the technology we have embraced…Rather we have become a part of it through the technology, we have become a part of something greater than ourselves.
