Update #7

OpenUrban Round 2!

Comment

Hey Kickstarter Funders,

It's been a year since we started OpenUrban with your generous support. We really appreciated your help during our beginnings. We would not have been able to put the beta site for OpenUrban together without it. Anyone can now go on www.openurban.com and start learning about projects in their neighborhood, adding information, or leaving their comments and ideas. 

This past year we've been building up a community both in Turkey and abroad, presenting our project and discussing ideas at TEDxReset in Istanbul, at the World Islamic Economic Forum in London, Ideas City Festival in New York City, DubaiOne's Peeta Planet TV show, at OpenStreetMap's State of the Map U.S. in San Francisco, and many other venues. 

However, we are a bootstrapped non-profit and continue to need funding to make OpenUrban a reality, whether that's web development, online hosting services, or community building. To raise money we've started a second fundraising campaign through a Turkish platform called Biayda.

Please help us continue our work by making a donation! (We suggest $25 or 50TL but any amount is welcome!)

Thanks again,

The OpenUrban Team

Update #5

150x100x1 Challenge - 20 Days Left!

Comment

November 30th - December 31st, 2012

We have 20 days left to meet our goal of 150 new pages. We've been making steady progress, but we're a little behind our schedule. We need to add 6 projects a day to reach our goal.

We still have two hand printed posters to give away for the No Procrastination Award. If these interest you don't put off contributing for long!

Update #4

Help Build OpenUrban! 150x100x1 Challenge

Comment

Between November 30th - December 31st, 2012  OpenUrban needs your help to fill out its content! So we’re asking friends and supporters to help us create 150 project pages of 100 words or more within 1 month – the 150x100x1 Challenge. You can create a page about any urban development of any size anywhere in the world. If you’re not sure where to start we recommend making a page about something in your city or community. For example is there a new transit station or apartment building planned for your neighborhood? And if you're creating pages in a new city recruit some friends to add pages with you!

100 words = 1 paragraph = 30 minutes

Did we mention prizes?!

  • No Procrastination Award(s) – the first 5 individuals to make pages after November 30th will each receive a limited edition hand printed poster.
  • Best Research Award – the best written and researched page, as judged by the site administrators, will receive an OpenUrban t-shirt and a packet of street stickers. This prize applies to new edits of existing pages as well
  • Most Prolific Award – the person with the most pages (100 words/page) will receive a t-shirt, stickers, a hand printed poster, and our eternal gratitude.
