Recently, I participated in a competition called Ideas in the Attic for the second time. This is a small business contest, and the prize includes $1000.00 in advertising among other stuff. The contest is open to the public, and has very little publicity. The site advertises that they will select 14 finalists. Last year there were 9 finalists and 6 showed for the actual competition. This year there were 6 finalists and 4 showed for the actual competition. With odds like this, I think I have a shot. The idea is to make a 3-mintue elevator speech to pitch your idea. There are two prizes awarded: the judges pick and the audience’s pick.
We received your new submission over the weekend. After discussing it with our committee, we would like you to present your first idea for the social network at Ideas in the attic. Let me know if you have any questions. I look forward to seeing you tomorrow.
I don’t know if he didn’t care, or if he couldn’t imagine my second idea to have been born of anything but spite. In any event, as I made my speech, I was sure to work in that I wanted to be able to contribute to the community in a way that I think the religious community has failed to endeavor. I got really confused looks by the judges, and to avoid further controversy, simply alluded to the Women’s Medical Fund and suggested they google it.
