Knight: questions for second stage

I’m taking a few days of vacation to work on my proposal for the Knight News Challenge.

My request is for support for the planning and marketing of a mass tech collaboration — which would focus a relatively large number of mainly technical people for a defined a relatively short time, to make one or more projects that would either be localized or intended to be made localized.

These are the questions I need to answer (No. 1-4 were part of the original entry):

5. What potentially bigger thing might happen if everything went perfectly and the stars all aligned? (2075 characters maximum, approximately 325 words)

6. How will you be able to measure whether or not your project has really made a difference? (2075 characters maximum, approximately 325 words)

7. What unmet need does your proposal answer? (2075 characters maximum, approximately 325 words)

8. What specific, unique opportunity do you see that will make this project more successful than others trying to fill that general need? (2075 characters maximum, approximately 325 words)

9. How will people learn about what you are doing? (2075 characters maximum, approximately 325 words)

10. Do you have any other funding or investment? We’re interested in knowing who else is interested in your project. (2075 characters maximum, approximately 325 words)

11. Are you working with anyone else to complete this project? If so, please give names and what they would do? (2075 characters maximum, approximately 325 words)

12. Who else is working in this area? How does your work fit into the larger context of work in this area? (2075 characters maximum, approximately 325 words)

13. What do you guarantee will happen if you complete the activities in this proposal? (2075 characters maximum, approximately 325 words)
