Mornflake research - a personal response.
- As I explained to Andrius on the phone. Regarding Mornflakes (and other things) I do not have time now to get involved in anything that redirects my present focus, which is on Dadamac (based on work that John Dada and I have been doing together for many years).
When Dadamac's online presence is working properly it will be easier to see how the work of Dadamac complements Andrius' work. I should also have more time to see how my own interests outside of Dadamac fit in with Andrius interests.
I congratulate Andrius on getting the Mornflkes work. If I have understood the contract right, then I think it is very interesting that a company is seeking to explore what people are looking for "in a company" (ie its ethical values and behaviours") not just "in the company's product".
That kind of issue does interest me, it is part of increased two-way communication enabled by digital technologies and the ways we are learning to use social media. (That is the kind of thing I am very interested in studying - and I came to Mincui Sodas because I was able to learn so much here).But for now I can't persue interests like that. I need to concentrate on setting up Dadamac online in a way that will make what we are doing acessible to others (so I won't need to explain things like this - I'll just be able to point to the right part of our webpresence.)
I will offer a quick suggestion ref Mornflakes. It may be worth trying to get some schools involved (If teh teachers can see some way of making it fit into the curricualum. I have a link from back in 2002, when I was trying to find schools that might be interested in some work I was doing in Nigeria. Back then Webb66 International School web registry gave me 1212 UK "elementary" (primary) schools and 173 secondary schools with websites. They could be a possible starting point.
Google search today led me to :

so please do not assume I have read what is written on them.
