Design-Thinking Hackathon: The *Weekend Movement
The TechSoup Global Network team is in action today over at the Stanford Social Innovation Review. My good buddy Glenn Fajardo recently went to Malaysia where he spent time with the organizers of the *Weekend Movement, a community of people that builds crafty projects and innovative solutions to real-world problems -- over the weekend.
Glenn explores some of the critical success factors for the *Weekend Movement in his piece today in the Stanford Social Innovation Review. How they select participants, how they hook in potential project supporters, and how they understand the motivations and interests of their participants all factor into their success and productivity.
Check it out, and be sure to comment if you have any questions or ideas to add.
