Munny 3.0

On August 2, 2010 Dan Brown started a project called Dan 3.0. This project was intended to give control of his life over to the internet community! The internet community now has control over what Dan does. All anyone needs to do is to go over to, and propose or vote on an idea.

Many people are taking this as an opportunity to try to change the world. To try and see how things would be like, if governments and businesses had similar models. Many of the proposed tasks are silly, or just for fun, like go skydiving, or do a cross country trip around the 50 U.S. states. However many of the tasks have a deeper meaning, like giving to charity, or donating time at a soup kitchen, or even giving money to homeless people!

However, there is one task in particular I am eager to see Dan complete. At this moment, if all the tasks are sorted by most positive votes, the task I am talking about lies on page 40, out of over 400. This means that the task is in about the top 10 percent of tasks, but it still has a long way to go.

The task I am talking about deals with munny dolls, and it is very simple. Have Dan Brown obtain a munny doll, then decorate it, and sell it. After recovering his original investment, the money will go to charity! This will definitely work and be successful simply because of Dans popularity!

But if you are going to vote for this task, you can do so for many reasons. The first reason is the obvious charity aspect of the task. The second reason is that it promotes KidRobot and munny's! Imagine what a boost it would be for KidRobot, to have Dan Brown decorate a munny doll. Not only does it promote KidrRobot as a company, but it also promotes the central idea of the KidRobot community, which is to foster a community of artistic expression, something that many of the other Dan 3.0 task suggestions have been lacking.

One last reason to vote would be to have an influence on Dans life this year. Many people seem to be claiming that this project has the ability to change the world. Wouldn't you want to be a part of it?
