Bureaucracy Around the World – William McCluskey

Bureaucracy is just a word we use to describe poorly communicated process.  Many times the problem isn’t the process, but the lack of support offered by the company who owns the process.  Lots of times process becomes bureaucracy when scale overwhelms the system.

For example, let’s look at developing nations.  In a span of less than 20 years, a region can go from no power electricity to sophisticated online-payments.  Static documents just can’t keep up!  This is where Proper Channel comes in.  We allow people to share their knowledge turning your customers into your content generators.  When you treat your customer like a partner, great things can happen.

Bureaucracy around the world

Crowd-sourced Traffic Mapping – Danny Kramer

Shout-out to one of our awesome counterparts in the field of simplification. Waze is a great tool for dealing with traffic by getting live feedback for other people dealing with it as well. While our flowcharts can be used for simplifying processes before they are begun, this app–owned by Google but operated independently–is super useful for on-the-go decision and real-time planning when it comes to stress-reduced driving.

Mayday PAC – Danny Kramer

The Mayday PAC has two key features that we at Proper Channel also value: Collaboration and Crowd-sourcing. This group, aiming to get big money out of politics, was developed by leading thinkers on both sides of the aisle. Mayday’s emphasis on collecting individual donations and considering public suggestions submitted online will hopefully help make Lawrence Lessig’s vision of a “people’s SuperPAC” become a reality.
