Today I had an interesting chat with Robert Kluijver, one of our Mediamatic Travel guides. He's going to Skopje in March to do a creative city workshop.
We discussed what would be the most appropriate way to communicate Skopje's creativity on our Mediamatic Travel website and came to the conclusion that not only guides, but also people with a profile that would just like to add pictures or texts, should be able to participate. In this scenario the guide will become a cultural manager in the process than the sole contributor and contact person of the city's underground.
Robert was very pleased with this idea. It also made his job easier, as he only needs to contact one person who's fit to be the guide of Skopje. Subsequently the guide will invite the whole artistic network of Skopje to start contributing.
Next week I'll be focussing on the 'invite friend'-button to ease the proces of inviting a person to contribute.
