Adhacking's mission is to hack ad rates using nonprofit status to promote hackerspaces. There should be a major banner near every hackerspace in the world. Let's hack the planet one billboard at a time.

Here we can gather plans of how to best do this to promote particular hackerspaces with local banners and hackerspaces.org in general.

Hypothesis

A big billboard somewhere near a hackerspace would invite a lot of cool people to check it out.

Procedure

  1. √ Gauge Interest: Ask around local hackerspace mailing list, sounds like people are interested
  2. Design: Come up with a first design to test out, give people actionable steps on a special welcome page
  3. Design Selection: Pick a favorite design for the board and landing page to start with
  4. Analytics: Do some smart hackery analytic things to be able to track response
  5. Target: Pick a spot for it
  6. Funding: Crowdsource money for it
  7. Deployment: Put it up
  8. Observation: Observe the people who show up.
  9. Data: How awesome are they?

Data Questions

    • How many become members?
    • How many heard about hackerspaces before seeing the billboard?
    • How many are students?
    • How many already have projects they want to bring in?
    • How many are of which demographics?

Done Steps

Ad Crowdsourcing Sites

  • There are two sites that help with crowdsourcing funding:

Good Examples

Design Sharing

  • There's lots of clever hackers who could come up with designs for billboards for hackerspaces or other cool ideas.

Nonprofit Rates

  • Matt Spergel said the rates were really low for nonprofit PSAs
  • School Factory could help with nonprofit status for hackerspaces that don't have their own yet.
