Subject: [learningfromeachother] Directory of UK online communities for Mornflake
I'm happy to report that Leon Benjamin has approved my proposal. My lab
Minciu Sodas is starting work immediately to create a directory, in the
Public Domain, of online communities whose participants are primarily or
frequently from the United Kingdom. The Law Firm will use this
directory to understand what communities might encourage participation
in a Mornflake cereal video contest http://www.mornflake.com
We're starting to work on this at our wiki:
http://www.worknets .org/wiki. cgi?UKOnlineComm unities
I invite us to start adding to that page!
We need to find existing directories. Edward Cherlin points us to Wiser
We might help such directories get more entries.
We can also make a list of impressive UK social networkers as they are
the hubs that link and form networks.
We will be earning 5,000 GBP for one month's work of which I will keep
half (2,500 GBP) and distribute half for our team (2,500 GBP). I am
looking for 5 team leaders who will receive money in advance (typically
250 GBP) and will need to take responsibility for some of the work and
lead and motivate others. Please speak up if you are interested and let
me also know what kinds of online communities you'd like to reach out
to. That leaves about 1,250 GBP which I imagine is best distributed to
those who help us meet our targets which is 500 entries in our directory
(we can give 1 GBP for each) and 100 communities that we sign up for and
engage (we can give 5 GBP for each).
Online communities that we can engage include all kinds, for example:
Parent Teacher Associations
Videomakers and artists
Sports Organizations and Fans
We need to decide on a discussion group where we should focus our work.
It could be Samwel's Mendenyo, Dennis's Community Work, Rachel's
Voiceful, Pamela's Learning From Each Other, Steve's Social Agriculture
or others. Please suggest.
Samwel Kongere has agreed to participate actively.
Dennis Kimambo wants to work full-time.
Pamela McLean and Tomas Cepaitis are also interested.
Andrius, have a nice group of english mastiffes

PeterOngele: Hi Andrius, I'll participate on this study, hope you would
help me on how to go about it particularly in the face book and Tags.
I've a number of friends all over the world, I hope it would be great
study for I also want to learn through this.
KevinParcell, April 14, 2009, LivingByTruth working group. Andrius, I'm
interested in this project. My SunMoney proposal to Google is founded on
the proposition that real communities would be willing to submit videos,
effectively becoming online communities, thus I have a compelling
interest that's closely related to Leon's question and so would benefit
from understanding Mornflake's specific effort to identify likely
participants. I'm a skilled project director, with a BFA in directing
performance. Otherwise my http://sunmoney. org site is my resume, which
includes the "Songs In the Night" video. That video is the surviving
piece of the Un-scared Project to support the Kucinich candidacy, for
which I recruited the help of more than 1000 people through the Kucinich
site. That site was structured like the MySpace site, and the video
project was begun about five weeks after I joined the site, after
creating a network of friends, and completed about five weeks later. By
the way, Google says it received more than 150,000 responses to its
request for ideas that help people and so doesn't know when it will
complete the list of 100 finalists. I guess ten million dollars is still
real money. Likewise, Mornflake's competition should successfully
identify the groups most affected by viral advertising of this sort if
it offers real money supplemented with the promise of exposure. By
working through existing online communities, they borrow networking
architecture familiar to interested individuals and so facilitate easy
organization of projects. Good, short vids created within these
communities will also circulate widely within these same groups. If it
were my competition, I might create categories, such as humor, family,
etc, to multiply the opportunities to win and perhaps multiply the
appeal and exposure. Regards,
Please write at our groups and at the wiki!
