Hi, I'm Clint. I live in the sunny heart of Australia - the thriving city of Brisbane. I have a wife, two kids and a healthy addiction to caffeine and EDM.
I'm from Industrial design, worked in that for a while, then segued into systems and info management until recently. I'm returning to design after being in IT for that long, so I'm loving OpenIDEO for the access to use my right brain again!
Re the paint Mansi, You and I can get hold of suitable paint fairly easily.
I think it would be interesting to have a basic way of creating blackboard-ready paint from any available paint. Imagine a progressive thinker in New Guinea (or in any city without a hardware store) wants to set one up... They simply source some black paint, throw in a few bucketfuls of road-side dirt/sand/whatever, and get some people to paint it on a wall. [How-to make black-board paint?]
That way it could have a truly global application...
We have an interesting thing going on in our community magazine, MX (Brisbane CBD only): It is a segment called 'Here's looking at you" (or similar).
Contributors send in an endearing comment about someone who they saw on a bus or train, telling them about something they liked about the person (eg. Nice eyes; You made my day; I'll be on the 5:15; etc.).
A BB on a train/ bus-stop/ subway could become a fun way to do the same.
Hi guys. A few thoughts here that might stimulate discussion/other ideas.
- QR codes. Each board with its own unique id. - Sponsors. Create a 'chalk-art' ad for a sponsor, and they can pay for the chalk (small price). - TED. I think this idea could be an idea worth spreading. - Curved surfaces. The concept doesn't need to be limited to flat walls. - Outdoor. The beauty of an outdoor installation? - Precipitation becomes the master eraser!
Good thoughts and ideas in the room. Keep them coming! Clinton
