Remember this crazy idea about promoting peace through karaoke? Not so crazy after all: our concept for a Crowdaoke app to build peace through collaborative music-making got an honorable mention at the UNAOC Create awards.
Crowdaoke is in really great company, check out the other honorable mentions and finalists here. I’m pretty intrigued by Reality, a game where players can “pursue news stories as a freelance reporter in this game that aims to raise awareness of media bias and promote critical thinking about what we read.”
Rodrigo Davies and I are hoping to move ahead with developing Crowdaoke anyway. We’re meeting at SXSW this week: he’s speaking about crowdfunding; I’ll be talking about technology for peace. I’m not sure we’ll karaoke, but we’ll certainly talk about Crowdaoke, dream up other projects and dance the night away. With friends like these, work and fun are all the same.
