I wonder if there is any opportunity to apply the obvious intelligence within the LiveCode community (and LiveCode technologies) to help analyse and/or resolve some of these wicked problems facing society - where there is no magic bullet and the 'best' answer is always the least of all evils.

Anyone interested in how technology is being applied to wicked problems, IBIS and the background information on Compendium provide some interesting starting points compendium.open.ac.uk/institute/

Best,
