Project Brief

Due March 31, your project brief should be a narrative of no more than five pages that responds to the feedback you’ve gotten on your elevator pitch. Your narrative should address the “what, why, who, where, when, and how” of your project. It should start with the “what” stated at the outset, in a single sentence. It should end with a clear statement of what you propose to produce as your final project for Core II.

Turning It In
To turn in the brief, create a new forum topic titled Project Brief: Your Name, where you replace Your Name with your own and then attach your file to the topic.

Before writing your brief, read our feedback to your pitch posted here (password protected).

NYC Ed Tech Event

7:00 PM To 

If you’re interested follow this link: http://www.meetup.com/NYEdTech/events/108930452/

There are two ways to attend

  1. In person. To do this you have to A) Join Meetup.com and then B) join the group and C) RSVP. The process won’t take long but as of this writing there were only 25 spots left.
  2. View the LiveStream. The link is on the page I listed above

Jennifer and Erin, this is the kind of event you might want to start attending as you think about potential speakers and try to get a better feel for the tech scene.

Wikipedia Day

A quick event announcement. On Saturday, February 23 Wikimedia New York City is holding a 12th birthday party for Wikipedia. It will be held at my graduate program NYU’s Interactive Telecommunications Program. That is an interesting place to visit if they allow a tour while you’re there. I won’t be able to make it unfortunately, but I hope some of you might be able to.

Best, Chris
