Telemarketing Democracy (And Crowdsourcing Other Causes) via Facebook

Telemarketing Democracy (And Crowdsourcing Other Causes) via Facebook

I just got done with one of the most interesting service projects I’ve ever been part of; one that I see has a lot of potential for all sorts of causes. I just called about 40 unregistered voters in California to remind them to mail in their registration form by Monday, via Rock the Vote. While the project itself doesn’t sound too mind blowing, it was how we did it. Rock the Vote has...

Right now money and finance businesses are up. Not too life hackery,...

Welcome TWiT Live Viewers

Hi there! Yes, I’m doing a documentary on life hacking because I’ve been interested in the idea for about 2 years and no one else has documented it (in a movie, at least). This site is fairly new, so I don’t have any ‘must read’ posts. I am looking for people in the southeast for a long term case study, so if you know anyone I’d love to talk. I’m also a...
