A number of people have asked me what WasteAWeekend is all about, and whilst I have some knowledge of the people behind it I am as much in the dark as the rest of you!
I do know that it has attracted a significant amount of interest already, some good and some bad.
I do know that the guys behind it are putting an awful lot of effort into it, and that whilst constructive criticism will no doubt be welcome and acted upon, once again I am at a loss why people that obviously aren’t interested seem to want to spend so much time criticizing? To be honest I am not sure that it will be something that I will participate in, but I have signed up partly out of “professional interest”, partly to support the guys behind it, but mainly because there is no reason not to! If I want to participate I will, if I want to ignore it I will, but I certainly wont go and criticize other people for wanting to have some fun in a different and creative way. Good luck is what I say. And don’t forget that you only have until Monday midnight (PST) to sign up
If you become a “Hero” let me know – the world can never have enough hero’s!!!
Oh, yes “unofficially” you may want to put aside more than one weekend for this as I think it is going to run every other weekend for a whole year from March 2007.
And ….. ideas for prizes featured on the old preview site (ipods, pzizz machines and such) are just the beginning according to these guys.
If I hear more I will let you know.
