When walking out of Mikes practical We all came up with more new ideas. An idea came up about placing a URL on a five pound note, but i felt there were alot of problems with this project such as people wont be asked to do it, could stay in somebodies pocket/purse for aaaages, go straight to a bank and could even get lost down the side of a seat. But it is still worth a try as i think it will be good to track as many things as possible as you do not know how many people will actually visit the URL on the note.
I decided to go back to Kats and talk more about this and we wrote them down. There were alot of idea we came up some doable then other, heres a list of the ideas we came up with:
- Chain email
- Tagging a cat
- Placing a sticker on a Tour bus
- Tracking a print glass
- Message in a bottle
- Balloon messaging
- Dvd rental
As you can see some ideas are quiet far out there, but as i said before its best to keep our options open so we can actually see what results we can get.
The email idea is the better idea so we decided to carry on with it, so at kats we created an IDAT101 email address and a dumby email which we may send out to our mates and then they will hopefully send it out to five other people and then them five other people will all do the same and so on and so on.
But how will you know where it goes i hear you cry. Well we thought of that and on the dumby email we simply asked the person who has the email to send one back to us and tell us where abouts they are in the world so we can track where abouts the email has gone. This is a risky thing to do as people hate chain email and most people just cant be bothered to do these things anymore. But fingers crossed we will get some results.
