Beyond the weekly status report, we would like you to put together a one-time only presentation/sum-up of your respective projects. This information will be used by the executive group to to present the course and the project groups on the soon-to-be-created public face of the course - the homepage futureofmedia.se. It can also be interesting for intra-course communication - what do other groups work on, whose work are you close to and should confer with?
Together with the executive group (esp. webmaster Johan L), we would thus like each group to provide:
- The (new?) name of your group
- An inspiring question/statement/proposal; "What if...", "In the future,...", "We will...", "Our dream is..."
- A short summary/pitch (around 40-100 words) about your project. What will you do, what is your big idea, what will you look into, how will you do it?
- A picture (width 960 * height 480 pixels) of "something"; a logotype for your project, a photo that tries to capture a feeling etc. (see example below).
You might feel that it is slightly premature to state/pitch what you will do, but the goal is to get a wealth of materials so as to be able to mix and mash something up that can convey a theme and a feeling for promotion/ad/elevator pitch purposes - for example in an attempt to get sponsors to the final presentation!
Each group should "hand in" this material in the form of a blog post on the companion blog. Deadline in Tuesday October 30!
For inspiration, see this TED talk by Simon Sinek, "How great leaders inspire action" about the importance of answering the questions "why", "who" and "how".
