Aspiration Developer Summit, Oakland, CA – 11/17/08

Aspiration notes:

The big question for Net2?

* How to tighten n2y4 challenge framework in way that makes work/participation compelling to a a relatively small # of mobile app developers around the globe?

* What’s fundamentally missing from the n2 challenge framework from a ‘web/mobile dev’ perspective? What tools are missing?

* Who might help us answer these q’s?

Interesting Projects/Organizations to research:

* Open Handset Alliance

* Twitter Voter Project Key Learnings:

1. Mobile Platforms. We need to help our constituents better understand the benefits and costs of mobile platforms.

Solutions might include:

(a) articulating said costs and benefits for the net2 community

(b) identify key experts to help articulate potential of mobile apps for good

(c) identify case studies NOW! so people have models to better understand the complexity

Quotes: “Email is still killer app on smart phone.” – Peter Campbell

Pics: stay tuned!

“I didn’t care, because for me, any sort of popularity had an inverse relationship with what you term the keeping ‘real’ of ‘shit.'” 

Growing up is weird.

Dave gets it…

We all mess up, but, most of us, don’t have the guts to ‘fess up when we do — never mind the act of publicly ‘fessing up. That’s really hard. I recently heard that Hollywood types are coached into rehab after they mess up by their PR/Branding people, to spur public sympathy for the messup. Check out David (JetBlue’s CEO) apologizing here (and their customer ‘bill of rights’). When’s the last time you said you apologized publicly to a group of people that count on your business or organization? What would your customer/supporter “Bill of Rights” say?
