Now that we’re off to the races, it’s all about planning and getting things rolling. Lots to do, from branding and website, to sponsors and prices (along with judges and criteria), putting together a schedule, planning an announcement, creating a call for projects ideas and thinking through how people will register for participation and form groups, and on and on. It’s pretty cool though, and we made good progress this week. Main thing was to get the absolute basics down that need to be started as early as possible, and then move on to the less time-sensitive things, and start filling in the gaps. Special shout-out to Mo for all her contributions. For details, check the pinned document in the #designathon
Overall, I hope can create a nice creative comfort zone for those 12 days, where participants can pursue their ideas together. Whether that’s contributing to an existing project, dreaming of the future, AI generated bitcoin art, solving their own bitcoin-related problems, pushing global adoption, etc… that will be up to everyone to decide. I assume we will get a better sense of what people actually want to do over the next 2-3 weeks as we have more conversations.
A decent amount of time went towards designing a website and starting to build it. The video below shows a first draft.
