Amplify our Applicability Action as Proof the MIX Works
I find a great deal of fantastic content on the MIX. I enjoy the interchanges with other MIXers. What's absent are the success stories. Evidence where some one (or company/organization) has taken any one or a number of the ideas posted at the MIX and found it to work, fail, or needed modification is rarely presented unless the original post is a case itself.
I wrote about three legs of a stool in a hack last year where I stipulate that "applicability is the true measure of worth." We are rich in content; the first leg of the stool. We are short on results - the applicability use cases - that prove or disprove these ideas are useful. What we need to do is allow people to post stories about how they have tried to use and apply the different ideas, and then amplify these actions as the proof cases that these ideas aren't simply a lot of creative thinkers simply shouting into the wind.
As we amplify our applicability action, these successes can resonate across audiences, and possibly be used to replicate those successes elsewhere. It's only when the content proves applicable that we can then "monetize" the whole platform.
