I have been a little quiet on the blogging front. Sorry. Also we have been quiet on the social media front... sorry for that too.
Most people are still on holidays. I have made use of the spare time to consider a few other ideas that fluttered onto my desk over the break - like having lunch with Steve and Tim discussing a potential new project.
I presented the forest of ideas to Evan over breakfast last week. He made a good point, one that a lot of others have made to me, "Dude, you have to pick one."
I think that's the difficulty - there are so many big ideas, and then sub-ideas under each big idea, and then sub-sub-ideas under each of those... looking at VIVA, we are already juggling about five sub-ideas, and about 40 sub-sub-ideas. Even doing one will take many hours. Most of our time in the past two weeks have been spent carefully looking at how we can better service Sydney Festival. New ideas are emerging from the analysis, and so I will have to share them with the team in the coming weeks. I want to first sketch the Photoshop mock-ups before sharing the ideas, since some of the implementation are subtle. There are a few big ideas on the horizon for how to make VIVA better, but I am not yet sure the best ways to tackle these ideas.
