Phase 2 is proving to be fun! São Paulo is bursting to the seams with arts, culture, urban vitality and warm-hearted people. Seven diverse kids have been sourced for the initial tests. The first prototype is now designed and is going into build this week. We need as many SMART ideas as possible (clever ideas about city improvement that might be of interest to kids, going on or in development anywhere) for the game cards, so if anyone knows of any, send them in to thetenproject@gmail.com. This paper game version is a prototype for a browser game called “MyCity2020”, in which kids choose a city and compete to make it the SMARTEST city in the world, by making fun stories, cartoons, music, rap etc. They can also make stories about things that are not yet smart and use them as weapons against their opponent’s cities. A local team of researchers and assistants have been networked to help source larger youth groups and more urban projects here and JT, Project Director has started VLOGGING his experiences in São Paulo and is posting them daily on the blog!
