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?
