Mid-Review Summary (March 9th 2009)
It was a really good Mid-Review. I got a lot of good comments and feedback from all of the critics and I also got some really nice suggestions that I can dig in and see if it works for this project. One of the most common questions all the critics raise up was the cleaning aspect for the bamboo cup. Because there were holes on top of the bamboo cup, people might get sick while drinking. Critics also suggesting me to looked into Nylon and polypropylene strings that are dishwasher safe. They were also thinking maybe I could introduce something else into the line, for example water bottle that people can take around, or piggy bank. Two critics suggesting me to have a funding campaign built into the bamboo cup, people can choice patterns, depends on the donation, they will get different patterns. For the Paper loom, all of the critics really liked the idea of the open source paper loom. They though it was a smart move to change it from for selling to open source for free. They think, there should be a lesson plan for teachers to download online as well. These way children all around the world will be introduce to Taiwanese indigenous culture. Two of the critics also direct me to looked into some articles and the company called Ten Thousand Villages.
