First – Congratulations to everyone for completing another successful Thing-a-day sprint!
It’s been fun and challenging as always.
If we would give a favourite project award, it would go to Dubi Kaufmann for his amazing series of flying objects!!! Go Dubi!
Now on to some more serious matters
This has been our 6th year of running Thing-a-day. We do this on a voluntary basis, and at times it has become more time-demanding than we would wish for. There is promotion, communication, design, website development, user management, etc. – all small to medium tasks that in the end add up to more than expected.
Therefore we would like to open the discussion to everyone on how you imagine the future of Thing-a-Day. We’ve tested different platforms (wordpress hosted, self-hosted, posterous, ..) over the years, and none seem to fulfill all the wished-for criteria. We also would be looking for new collaborators interested in taking the project into their hands.
Some Questions to consider
Are you already looking forward to Thing-a-day 2013?
What would you do if there would be no official Thing-a-day platform in 2013?
Could you imagine taking over some/all of the tasks connected to running Thing-a-day?
Do you happen to know the perfect multi-user online platform that would do all we want it to do?
Would you contribute a bit of $$ to get Thing-a-day 2013 running?
