I'm setting goals to stretch myself, so that I strategize how to reach them. Here are some of them. I chose the dates as something to aim for (no specific meaning - just x weeks or months from when I set the goal).

  • Find 3 more tech interns - 11 May 2011
  • Make outline of a fundraising campaign - 15 June 2011
  • Get some mainstream media coverage for Appropedia - 14 June 2011
  • Find funding, including: $20,000 in sponsorship - 19 June 2011
  • Find 3 corporate volunteers - 19 Aug 2011

Request help via blog - draft:

Over a breakfast meeting with Mitra Ardron recently, he described how he's someone who prefers to navigate via categories, rather than search - and he'd come up with some examples on Appropedia that are very confusing.

Now, anyone can edit the categories in a wiki, but it's best if final changes are made by someone who's been working with the wiki and with the categories for a long time - so I'm putting out a request for help. Have a look through our categories, by:

  • looking up topics you're interested in, or
  • browsing the Category Tree.

Find examples of confusing categories - places where categories are duplicated, badly named, or you wouldn't know which category to use on a page. Then paste the category names or links in the comments below.
