More interaction among M-Prize Finalists

By Susan Resnick West on February 13, 2013

While submitting our M-prize entry was an incredible experience for my team, I would have loved more interaction with other finalists. The stories were incredible and I would love to learn from the awesome contributors. Perhaps the judges could do a little match making by pairing finalists and encouraging them to help each other improve their hack/intervention. The “prize” could be something that rewarded collaboration and dialogue. In my early experience with the MIX, we did a lot together; I felt a part of something. It was fun and I extended my network. Of course it was summer and I had more time to participate but I’m glad I had that experience, it bonded me to the MIX.

Ditto! One of the more appealing aspects of being selected was the idea you would be invited into future "Think Tanks" sponsored by the MIX.

A one day event to share stories and brainstorm/evolve ideas would be great.

Completely agree! I'd be there in a heartbeat. By the time an individual or team does all the work to qualify as a Finalist, there's clearly a huge passion for the topic and thirst to engage...

I love this idea. What a great way to extend your personal network and connect with other finalists. Along the same lines, maybe we should host a reception prior to the next MIX Mashup for M-Prize finalists to meet in person and get some quality time to spend together. This would be a nice way to ensure some meaningful relationships and conversations have already occurred before the mashup even officially begins.

I like this idea a lot! I think there is a lot that you get when you bounce ideas off other like-minded people from across the world... If you could pick themes out from the entries and require collaboration that might be a tremendous experience!

100% agreed.
Building up on the individuals and co-authored submissions is a key dynamic we need to promote.
