Would you change your Facebook picture for ColaLife?

A group of us (in a Google Group) are working on a campaign to get people to vote for the ColaLife idea if it gets through to the last 100 in Google’s Project 10 to the 100th trawl for the best ideas in the World. We will know on 17 March 2009. One idea put […]

No more organisations needed?

It would be very attempting to set up ColaLife as an NGO but I strongly believe that the organisations needed to implement the ColaLife already exist and that we should focus on joining things up and facilitating relationships to make things happen. Now and again I receive a message that reassures me that this is […]

Making use of unused space – can you help?

The ColaLife AidPod makes use of unused space in a Coca-Cola crate. Could you use the unused space on your Twitter page to promote ColaLife? By changing the background image to your Twitter page, all the people visiting will see information about ColaLife. I wonder how many people we can get to do this for […]

Twitter users go beyond the background – thanks

Thanks to everyone who has gone the trouble of uploading the ColaLife Twitter background to promote the ColaLife campaign and encourage people to join the Colalife Facebook group and invite their friends. One or two users have gone the extra mile and donated their Twitter profile picture to the cause. Thanks to 40_thieves and houtlust. […]

ColaLife AidPod – new design to be unveiled on 3/3/09

A small group of us is gathering to plan for the eventually that our entry to Google’s Project 10 to the 100th ColaLife gets through to the final 100. Google will announce the final 100 on 17 March 2009 and then the public will be asked to vote on their favourite idea. Register for a […]

Creative juices start to flow . . .

There is nothing like the prospect of a ColaLife face to face meeting to get the creative juices flowing! These badge designs just popped into my mailbox from Bertie Bosrédon. Thanks Bertie. Which one would you wear?

Google Project 10^100 Voting Campaign planning meeting

Just a quick note to say thanks you to everyone who came to tonight’s campaign planning meeting. It was great to shake hands with so many people I’d only met online. The room at Global Tolerance was brimming with ideas and the talent to actually implement them. We focussed ruthlessly on “how we might get […]

The unveiling of Mark II of the ColaLife AidPod

As promised, and a lot quicker than expected, here is the unveiling of Mark II of the ColaLife AidPod (thanks to David Wilcox at Social Reporter). The main differences between the initial prototype model and this one are: It has a hi-top that sits slightly proud of the bottles – this increases the capacity of […]

Are Coca-Cola going to be first or are they just going to follow?

I’ve been thinking (always dangerous). And I predict that, in 10 years time, it will be considered unethical for a commercial operation to indulge in mono-product distribution in developing countries. I think this will be indefensible both from a social and environmental point of view. I reckon that if anyone says “We distribute xyz (=commercial […]
