Awesome Foundation: Let us excel!!!Veröffentlicht am 16. Februar 2011 von Felix Schürholz in Kategorie: CoWorking Klatsch & Tratsch, CoWorking Kultur, CoWorking News International, Crowdsourcing, Funding, Meinung | Trackback URL | Zur Diskussion
If you find something awesome, like the „Awesome Foundation“ it is a tough call to excel on it. Some might ask why should you anyway? Well, I would say because it is worth it. If we are happy with the things we have achieved, we get complacent and stop innovating. What an awesome idea to support „crazy brilliant idea(s)“ with $1,000 each and no strings attached. When you look at the website you can see that this is great fun!!! While the members of „Awesome Foundation“ are happy to sponsor the universe by $1,000 at a time, I wonder whether the universe is able to return this favour. Here is the point where evolution or innovation is possible. Maybe in many cases $1,000 will not be enough to implement these „crazy brilliant idea(s)“. What happens in that case? What does the universe think about this? Well, I think awesome ideas, need awesome funding. What about a feedback loop in the system? If recipients of „Awesome Foundation grants“ could or would return to the chapters to report on the progress of the implementation of their idea, there would be a much bigger chance that the projects would inspire by their existence and not by their potentiality of existence alone. For your clarification: Awesome projects, according to the „Awesome Foundation“ are „not strictly defined, but tend to challenge and expand our understanding of our individual and communal potentials. They bring communities together, casting aside social inhibitions and boundaries for a moment. They spark an instant of joy and delight and inspire a long-term hope for a more awesome future.“
I like to enter the following idea concerning coworking spaces (in general) in the „Awesome Foundation„: Every interested coworking space should start an „awesome chapter“ for the implementation of brilliant crazy ideas. The chapter not only chooses one idea a month, but also sets up a „parallel or shadow chapter“ that is responsible for the implementation of the most promising ideas. To pull of this idea, I would set up a special page on this blog, dedicated to bringing together people who are interested to start and join these chapters (for idea evaluation + idea implementation), like the „CoWorking-Starter„. I would also, in collaboration with the „Awesome Foundation“, report on the chosen ideas and their implementation, on the „CoWorking News„. If you like the idea, comment or click the Facebook button below.
