    Pool "gift certificates" of personal research time for NextEdgers we admire
    When to use
    When we have time and are feeling generous
    When not to use
    When our time's too short
    Summary Description
    Pledge __ hours of research help to others in the community (on topics of their choosing), if three others pledge to do the same. Build visibility and relationships with other NextEdgers
    2. CHALLENGE(S) - tensions addressed
    1) Many nascent NextEdge initiatives need volunteer help

    2) NextEdgers now lack a system to offer help – and to receive ratings/references that lift value of their personal currencies
    5. TEST - what stakeholders think of steps
    - Do New Currency subgroup members think a pilot is worth doing?
    - Are creators of pledge apps (eg Beex) willing to customize their solutions for a subgroup pilot?
    - Will participants in the pilot find it useful?
    - If they do, will a Kickstarter or similar pledge drive get enough backing to prepare a NextEdge-wide community solution?
    6. DECISION – next action
    Shall we explore NextEdge Love Bombs in the upcoming conference call?

  • 4. STRATEGY - proposed steps to make the change
    1) Evaluate fit of pledge sites (http://beex.org, http://pledgebank.org, etc) for NextEdge love bombs

    2) Create simple web site for Next Edgers to create, issue, track redemption of personal "gift certificates of time", and a rating system for recipients to leave feedback on completion of each project

    3) Approach Tribesourcing/Crowd Fund subgroup on Next Edge about a joint pilot project

    4) Do beta test with one or more admired NextEdgers as initial Love Bomb recipients

    5) Improve the system based on the beta test

    6) Conduct a full-fledged Next Edge pilot

    7) "Productize" the system as an open source app that can be shared with other Next Edge-aligned tribes
