    When to use
    When we have time and are feeling generous
    When not to use
    When our time's too short
    1. ATTRACTOR - what makes this interesting
    Give a boost to NextEdgers or aligned projects you most admire (with a prospect of reputation-building feedback)
    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
    3. OPPORTUNITY - vision of achievable change
    (as a giver)
    - Good feelings from helping out
    - Relationship/visibility with other NextEdgers
    - Reputation boost for personal currency

    (as a receiver)
    - Free help for projects you value
    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

    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?
