Oh yes they are! The Listening Project had a great turnout at the activities fair: sign-ups spilled onto a second page! This is Haverford, though, so of course, now I have to start badgering the people on the list to make time in their busy schedules. It will happen, though — always does.
Next mission: Plan focus groups! The goal of a Listening Project focus group is just to start a dialogue about the project, to talk about the goals, and of course, to determine what interests people the most. If this project isn’t accessible to the community, it will likely crash and burn. Not that I want to foreshadow anything (we just talked about tragic irony in my senior sem, so it’s on the brain). If you’re interested in participating in a focus group: speak up! Feel free to post a comment here or email me: firstname.lastname@example.org
Sometimes most unexpected ideas can produce broad results when executed simply. Case in point: the How Are You Doing Project (found courtesy of Yesterday Was Not Dull)

All right all right all right! It’s that time of year again. What time? I’ll spare you the “back to school shopping” bit. You either already know or haven’t been watching T.V. recently and don’t care (I approve, by the way). However, excitement is still a-brewin: The Student Activities Fair is tomorrow and the Listening Project will have a table. So, if you’re curious, swing by, sign up for the mailing list, ask me questions. I will probably bring along my iPod and some headphones for anyone who is interested in listening to StoryCorps podcasts. Will there be tasty treats? Maybe.
