The mission statement reads really well Peter. I think one of the next steps is to gather several examples like the US military design contest. I'll look for another one and will post it here. Then we can begin to look at how we can frame the crowd-sourcing issue educating the public to the seeming pitfalls of such a practice, and, dare I say it, the possible benefits.

On a related note, the US military is testing a method for crowd sourced design by teaming with Local Motors for a design contest

The coming SF unconference will address the growing trend of crowd-sourced design and it's implications in future markets. Important directions for the unconference will include how to react to crowd design and how to best educate undesigners to the creative design process.

Hi Peter,


I will send a message to all members soon.

But most important is to have something concrete to communicate. Like a plan for the content, speakers, game.... what have you. Or a date and a location. If you think up something like that I'll do all I can make some noise.

I like the service jam idea, I'm going to go ahead and sign up:
And as for the Unconference we would obviously need some more people in the network. In the meantime does anybody have any ideas on how to get some momentum behind the Unconference?

Thanks Peter for starting the ball rolling again.

I was trying to get something going, but it was hard doing it alone. I'm up for working to get an SF Unconference going again.

Global Service Jam looks interesting.

Sorry that the unconference didn't come together yet.  Maybe this could be an alternative, or even start the ball rolling:

There was talk of a SF Unconference a while ago, but I dont think anything came of it. If enough people get behind the idea, we can scare it up again.
