The Project C blog is going to be used in order to show the process work and progress of our project which is ultimately aiming to give back to the community of which we are a part. (More on our project concept to come soon)
Our first major meetings were used in order to layout the business plan of our project, initially dubbed the "Help Athens" project. A quick thank you is in order to Brandon Logan for helping us set up the outline of our business plan. We will post a PDF version when we are satisfied with its content and wording.
As we (we being: Tony Guglielmi, Annette Drupac, and Kyle Ackley) sat in a meeting last Sunday, we found ourselves becoming more frustrated with the name "Help Athens" because we know this project was something that won't just necessarily stop in the Athens community. We want it to grow.
So how did we come up with the name Project C?
We pulled up the whiteboard sitting across the room, and began writing down keywords that came to our mind about the project. Some examples of our key words are: community, change, world, life, cause, create change, people, culture, social, motivate.
After taking a step back we noticed that we had actually created a list of words where a majority started with the letter "C". As we pondered this thought, the three of us all asked the same question, "What do we ultimately want our users to do? . . . CLICK!" Thus our motto "clicking creates change" was created and Project C had a name which was more fitting to represent its motivation.
