Competitions


We have a winner for KaosPilot A-Z 2, the definitive KaosPilot book full of essays on social entrepreneurship and life as a KaosPilot. This competition was my response to the Creative Assignment posed by KP NL, which was to create and test a marketing tool for KP NL on at least 3 people. With 8 participants, I’ve hit that target, and I’ve contacted everyone to get feedback. But first, a funny story of how KP NL foiled me (kind of).

The winners were chosen by going through the responses, writing the names of those that had all-correct answers, and pulling them out of a hat. Out of 8 responses, this gave me 3 finalists. I did a draw, but wanted to recheck the answers for the question people kept getting “wrong”.

The question was on the values of the KaosPilots. When I made up the questions, I saw there were 5, and added another dummy 5 – “Compassion” was one of the “dummy” responses that kept showing up. Today, I rechecked the values, and whaddya know – “Compassion” is now a KaosPilot value! (It’s likely that I just wasn’t paying complete attention, but maybe I got foiled. Eh.) So now, instead of 3 finalists, I have 6 going into the hat.

Draw #1Draw #2

First Draw, with 3 finalists, and Second Draw, with 6 finalists

Oddly enough, both times I drew the same person! So you are a very lucky person…

Sidney’s description of the KaosPilots:

KaosPilots is an opportunity to provide one with the paint to paint the potrait of life and add flavour and colour to the otherwise mundane. With the guiding principles of being true to yourself and being a positive agent of change, the KaosPilot program SIX values demonstrate the no matter how young a person is, if the person really wants to make a difference, he/she can do so in any way (no matter how minor) possible.The TEN principles are the principles of being an effective and efficient leader who would represent the future voice/generation of the world.

KaosPilot A-Z 2

I am giving away a copy of the now-rare English edition of KaosPilot A-Z, which is filled with essays and stories about social entrepreneurship from KaosPilots board members and friends, such as the late Dame Anita Roddick and Alan Webber of Fast Company, as well as an alphabetical look into life as a KaosPilot.

This book can be bought for DKR 280,- or €40, which doesn’t include shipping and handling. I got mine from a second-hand dealer and it cost me AU$70 all up. And I’m going to give my copy away!

All you have to do is answer these simple questions. All the answers can be found on the KaosPilots.NL website. You’ll also need to describe the KaosPilots Netherlands in your own words. Don’t worry, we don’t need essays 🙂

Anyone can enter! Just get all your entries in by 30th April 2008. The results will be posted here by the 3rd of May at the very latest, and I’ll get in touch with the winner to send the book over.

Don’t hesitate, it’s just a simple task.

GiveMeaning is a website where people can put fundraising proposals up online and get support & ideas on how to make their fundraising efforts effective. They can also help collect funds for you.

I have put up my WBAKP proposal online and I need 100 votes by April 21, 2008 (a month or so away) for it to be active on the website. (I suppose this is to weed out spam and frivolous proposals).

Vote for Wanna Be A KP on GiveMeaning!

I’ve also applied for a Pop!Tech Social Innovation Fellowship. Theoretically, someone else is meant to nominate you (and if you want to, go ahead! ;D) but there wasn’t anything saying you can’t nominate yourself. Fellows get all-access paid participation to the Pop!Tech conference in Maine in October, as well as a leadership/skills development workshop aimed at developing big strategic programs, and year-long access to mentorships and networks. They’re particularly looking for those under 35, and those outside the US. Hey, I fit both criteria 🙂

Firefox is annoying me with its constant crashes. It’s just as unstable as IE before I switched over 4 years ago. I think I’ll be switching to Opera.

I’ve put up my project on kluster, a website that allows for creative collaborative projects. They’re currently working with TED on developing a collaborative project (I think they ended up with educational cards about culture).

You probably need an invite to get in, so email me and I’ll send you an invite 🙂
