Last night I read Hugh MacLeod of GapingVoid.com on Global MicroBrands. Today I had the thought that I need to establish a non-denominational reference site for social network theory to support Stronico, as well as to help push the theoretical edges of the web application. Then I remembered that I was going to do some turning on the new lathe tonight.
Then I had the thoughts:
- Why not have a website (of course) where I could give away handmade prizes in exchange for information
- The items made on the lathe’s would be one-offs, the best tip, tidbit, etc per month would win the price, which would probably be a gavel of some sort.
- There would be a new topic every month, as well as a new prize
- Later be the prize could be for the best entry on the free educational versions of Stronico as well (more on that to come).
- The information would have to be in the form of short, freeform entries, or tips, on a particular topic, either mneumonics, cooking, woodworking, typing, or whatever. Ideally there would be some voting involved, but initially I would choose the monthly winner and send out the prize.
The next challenge I suppose would be how to structure it to support Stronico, either as a promotional site, or as a freeware standalone part of the social networking/mnemonics/brainware part of the internet.
That’s my idea for the day anyway – I thought I would share my thought process with everyone. I find it helpful to flesh out the idea in words instead of leaving it unformed in my head.
