Sunday, December 26, 2010 Launches

OK well sorta. For now is hosted as a Ning network. (I can't exactly build a social network site in a day.) Although Ning is designed for an online social network, that is not what I'm after, but for now it will serve the purpose of having a site where users (daygage players) can register/login and get instructions on what to do next. Since I'm in the process of creating Day:Gage, registration will be restricted to those that have seen me on the subway, and are Followers. I want this network to be for those of us that ride the F together. I'll still be blogging here, but I'll focus most of my energy on  If you've seen me on the F in the past and want access, email me and I'll tell you how to get in.

Last Thursday morning 4 people pulled out their yellow papers during my commute to work. I thought that was awesome! I moved them to the next level, in addition to 2 others that pulled out the old green flyer (all crumpled :) ).

Eventually we'll need a custom site to do what I envision, but that will take a lot of time and money. I could possibly build it myself, but I started a new job about a month ago that has kept me very busy. Love and Peace.

Last Friday I began Day:Gage--my new approach to making a social network on the subway. I'm going to redo this site to reflect this and direct most of my future posts to those of you that see me on the subway and provide practical information on how to play. More information will come.

On Friday I handed out the flyer below. If you've seen me on the F and really want to help me launch this forward, please send me an email. Otherwise, you can follow me on twitter @daygage and I'll tweet my location right before I get onto the train, if you want to catch me that way. I'll be starting at 4th Ave/9th St. at the second car and moving rearward one car each station or so. See you on the subway!

Green Flyer Out

The past two weeks I've been handing out green flyers as below (and as you see in the Rocketboom video). I decided to move on to another idea, so I won't be handing those out anymore. It's amazing to me how when I printed these flyers up I thought it was such a great idea, but after only a week of using them I recognized its shortfalls, and will now be tossing the leftover few hundred into the trash. However it has helped me come up with a much better idea that I am excited to put into motion next week. Each failure leads me toward something new that's increasingly more practical. And I expect my upcoming idea to go through many iterations too before it's successful. "I have not failed.  I've just found 10,000 ways that won't work."  -Thomas Edison

Subway Recordings

This past week I recorded myself on the subway. I'm going to work on improving my speech, in content and delivery. Please help me with this. I've already noticed a couple things that I was completely unaware of, like making swallowing/clicking noises when I speak, and that when I talk to people on the subway (and probably elsewhere) I sound standoffish. I had no idea! Here I was just trying to give people their space and not be clingy, but I'm coming across as not caring. Should my speech be longer/shorter? Do I need to explain more? And more importantly, how should I improve my tone and attitude?

This past Monday Ella Morton and camera guy Matt Finlin of came out to videotape me. As you can see they make awesome videos, and this helps me spread the word. Matt's a great videographer and I highly recommend him and company to anyone in need of filming.
