When someone asks you for help, I think everyone wants to give. Maybe they don’t want to give money, but usually if multiple options are available, some value can be contributed for everyone time willing. Say you dont give someone money, but you build a mechanism to enable 2 people to give them money. Shouldn’t the goal of fundraising be to raise the wealth (value) and emotional well being of all parties by some increment. Lets rethink how things of value can be donated over what intervals- time, money, connections, humanity.
Social media is as much about listening as talking.
I meet so many people that purely talk for the sake of volume, and ignore the learning and actual sharing aspects of social media. If you tweet and post the same update 8 times a day, or just pass on information all the time, whats the point. What are you getting out of it?
Publish and interact with what you love, and use it to grow personally. If you are fake, we’ll all know it.
If any of my London QR friends have contacts for this project, I think it could be useful – let me know.
So, at Hammersmith, I saw this non- functional code. I figured, why not just make it mobile ? The interesting thing is that they already have a WAP site that would support this. They just need an easy way to access it. QR = Tada !
Note: As Tim pointed out, some places in the underground wont have wifi, but, I figure that this could still be beneficial in more rural areas or zones 2-4.
Last night I got to participate in my first head on head design battle. Fun stuff. My teammate Abe and I rocked the party with some amazing collaborative art creation.
Have you every had half an hour to design a piece infront of a live audience. 3 times in a row. I have.
I am confused when I go to an event, and people are just re tweeting what the speaker says. Isnt the point of twitter at an event to share a subconversation with the attendees. But I guess this depends on if people are engaged and using twitter?
