Invitation to enter the Program for the Future Design Challenge - ends Feb 8th

From: Catherine B.
Sent on: Wednesday, January 20, 2010 12:34 PM
If you have a project involving cooperation and/or collective  
intelligence, I'd like to invite you to submit it for the Program for  
the Future Design Challenge, which is ending soon.   For consideration  
for the prize, you must complete your entry before the February 8  
deadline.

The Program for the Future Design Challenge seeks to find new methods,  
tools or technologies that connect people so that they collectively  
act more intelligently.  New ideas ��� even simple ideas ��� that help  
people work better and smarter together in some important area will be  
featured. Submissions can come from any area of human endeavor ��� not  
just technical domains like computing or engineering but also the  
arts, business, economics, education, government, health, law,  
philanthropy, science and other spheres. The Program for the Future  
Challenge is organized by The Tech Museum in collaboration with the  
MIT Museum, under the supervision of a distinguished Board of  
Advisors.  Winning entries will be displayed in participating museums.

WHY ENTER
The challenge will award a prize of $5,000 US dollars to winning  
entries, and their demos be installed in our worldwide network of  
museums, exposing them to millions of visitors a year. More  
importantly, since children are a major museum demographic, the  
winners will inspire a whole new generation of innovators.

HOW TO ENTER
Go to http://programfor...­, create an account and  
submit a description of your new project.  For more details, see the  
attached PFTF Competitor Handbook.  If you know of a project besides  
your own that you think would be a likely entrant for the challenge,  
please take a moment to nominate it and we'll contact them with an  
invitation to enter. Both entries and nominations can both be done  
from the challenge page at http://programfor...­

AWARD CEREMONY
Winners will be announced March 3 at the Program for the Future  
conference.  Mark the date March 3, 2010: "CoLABoration 2010."   For  
more details and updates, see http://programfor...­

QUESTIONS?
For questions, check the Handbook (attached) and feel free to contact  
Bob Ketner at[masked] or [address removed] at any time for more  
information.

Looking forward to hearing from you,

- Rob
