First Assignment

by Tapan Parikh

Yes, already, but its short and hopefully interesting.  If you have an idea that you would like to pursue in the course, be prepared to make a short “pitch” to recruit other students in class on Tuesday August  28th.  Your pitch should be short – about 2-3 minutes, laying out as best you can 1) who your user is, 2) what their pressing need is, 3) why this is an opportunity and 4) any partners or users you already have lined up.  Preferably you can do this without Powerpoint, but if you need it, it will be there. Please use this Google spreadsheet to coordinate the group formation process.
