Since I have promised to stop browsing my usual social media haunts while at work in an attempt to deliver more accurate results I’ve taken to reading the news; mostly the Toronto Star and it has certainly served as a good way to keep me entertained while not distracting me from my work. Today I came across an article about VW’s initiative called The Fun Theory and I am in love.
In my last post, I talked about what your thoughts were on making the world a better place… and this idea that we can make the world a better place by simply making things better/easier/more fun for people to do has made me feel so good that I just had to share it. There have been three experiments conducted so far, and this one is my favourite:
The Fun Theory is actually a contest running from Oct 1st till November 15th where first prize is €1,500. That’s like a gazillion Canadian dollars and like a fazillion1 US dollars. So if you have a great idea, enter! You have absolutely nothing to lose and everything to gain: fame, fortune2, and a better world! Do it. Do it now.
What do you think about The Fun Theory?
