A service that facilitates an exchange between people.

Watch the videos on YouTube (or use the download links below) and see what everyone is crazy about...... ([Ed] or is that just us....)
48hrs later this is what we produced. The team worked hard and non-stop till the last (extra 30) minutes.
And we did feel the pressure, Melbourne was ahead of the time zone curve which meant we didn't have the privilege of catching up on what others were doing. The only benefit was the twitter feed #gsj11 which was very active.
Remember to vote for us at Global Service Jam, 'Like' the video an leave a comment, cheers.
Global Service Jam was an event for that brought together over 1200 people worldwide to create 200+ services that can bring together a better world, and do it all in 48hrs.
Why? Service Design is a new field in an old game. Bringing together the design of business services for the businesses customers. The Global Service Jam weekend brought together people committed to good Service Design in their local city.
So we had 48hrs to create a service and 'Jam' out (or 'Jam in' in some parts) a design of a service and showcase it.
