Abstract (at least 300 words to describe your proposal)

There is a shift occurring. People have been coming together networking, creating important connections with a strong desire to contribute within a rapidly growing world. Now is the time to leverage our experiences and connect the dots. Maybe then we can change the future.

Have you ever wondered about cause and effect? Like, what really causes cancer? Or wanted to test out that new diet fad before eating a whole watermelon? Finally be able to dispel a myth your wife insists on? Maybe, you have a feeling that those skinny jeans are damaging a few internal organs? Well, here's your chance to sharpen your instincts and turn your inklings into links.

The next wave of social interaction has evolved from networking to leveraging networks. Enough social networking (been there, done that) it's time to put our harnessed energy to work!

Are you ready for social experimenting?

No more relying on bias medical journals or sponsored agents for skewed results and impartial studies. Time to tap the source directly--each other! By harnessing the collective data and providing real-time charts, graphs and numbers, we bring together real observations and let you draw your own conclusions, easily & visually.

Let your gut do the work!

Maybe/Then provides collective, unbiased data in a visually attractive display to obtain the 10,000-foot view and create sustainable channels to mass data. Why should the government get to monitor our collective data, retrieve patterns and algorithms and not share any of the benefits with us? It is time to cut through the propaganda and use our own judgment, based on science.
