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 Confirmed one more, for a total of 3. Decided that number of tech interns is good for now. Aim to have 3 or 4 at any one time? => One more for June 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
  • 1 million page views per month for Appropedia (up from ~0.5 million currently) - 19 Aug 2011

Current projects

  • Looking for funding - going through lists of potential funders for potential matches.
  • How to raise our profile? (-> traffic and media)
    • Identify controversial and current topics, & link from front page.
      • -> Need a main page team. This might be mainly a community-building issue - need a few admins as members, so there's always someone who can actually update the page.
      • How to identify controversial content? Someone who follows the news and writes content. Talk with Wikinews community.
      • Look for journalism student intern to lead this content, or is that stretching too far? Communications intern?
