Wicked Problems: If you had to pick one that if solved would most change the Birmingham Metro area, what would it be?

Academic definitions abound for “wicked problems.” At The Edge of Chaos, we think wicked problems are the big ones. They’re the problems that plague communities. Wicked problems have no simple solutions, or worse, they have solutions that just cause more problems. The Edge of Chaos is a resource where people come together collaboratively to attack wicked problems. The Edge has put together the tools for people from academia, the business world, and the community at large to meet and let their ideas collide. The lines are blurred. You can engage right here on this site in collaborating over wicked problems. You can wander up to The Edge of Chaos space and see what’s going on. You can even become part of a more formal effort where folks are meeting on a specific issue.
