THE MOVEMENT: First annual pitch-off

The Pitches

The Brief

Think about the projects that came up during the dec 20th join up event. Figure out a way to combine the ideas, or even completely new ideas. Put those ideas into a coherent pitch which will blow all other pitches outta the waters.

Components of the pitch:

The ideas involved. What is the basis of this pitch, where did the approach come from. What has been taken from December 20th, what have you built upon it.

  • Awareness. How will people find out about what we're doing. How can they get involved?
  • People. Who will be allowed in, who will be kept out. How will people apply to get in. Will there be levels of membership?
  • Funding. How will it make money. How will the network sustain itself?
  • Betterment. How will we work on betterment. How will what we're working on make the world, or our lives better?
  • Brand. How will we ensure good work that we're proud of comes out. How will it work on the individual and group level. How about quality control.
  • Teams. When will people get together and do work? How will they find each other.
  • Measurement. What will we want to measure. What will we want to improve.

…Feel free to add more components as well

Judgement

  • Propose a way for these ideas to be judged and applied

Production/Organization Notes from the Online Followers

  • Point the Camera at the speaker when there's a pitch taking place.
  • Have someone monitoring the chat who's in the room and can fix stuff that's broken when it's broke.
  • @jasoneano will donate a www.thinkpragmatic.com account for more reliable video hosting. We lost the feed about 10 times in a 20 minute period.
  • Be sure there is an schedule so that we know when to tune in and when to expect participate by watching the presentations vs. stepping out during group work. Start + End times also would be valuable.
