  7. JUSTIFICATIONS Research on tweens and social networking: More time online

    correlates with lower levels of self-esteem Social Desirability Bias Mood Management Theory Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs and Self-Actualization Monday, May 14, 2012
  8. EARLY RESEARCH General: “I think that a lot of times

    people want to help with Burning Man projects and other art but there's no interface where people can see what those projects need. I imagine that people use Kickstarter to figure this out to some degree, but you don't necessarily know whether or not the projects you like need your help.” “It would be cool to make it searchable/browsable by needed skill too.” Specific: “I guess the specific help I need is ideas for making lots of sturdy connectors (~50) for not much $$$.” Monday, May 14, 2012
  9. SHORTCOMINGS Current “crummy trial” design does not reflect all of

    the needed affordances. Expansion Possible additional features incorporation with current social networks sites introduction of the multi-faceted person Monday, May 14, 2012
  10. NEXT STEPS Locate more maker-specific users who already have projects

    in mind to add to the current trial. Use tags to make a searchable database of projects. Discovering if trust and reputation are important for this sort of project. Summary Monday, May 14, 2012
