Um, GUESS WHO HAS AN NFP FINALLY!?
So I spoke with Ruediger from StEP (Solving the E-waste Problem) on Thursday morning. Gave him a basic run-through of what I was doing, working on, focusing on, etc etc. Asked him about his organization and learned that they are more a collection of organizations, professionals, and whatnot as opposed to one single organization which is good on my part, because that means it's a good source for networking as well.
He said he would really be interested in following my process with me basically as I go through my thesis. I've sent him some sketches so that he could get a more visual idea of what I'm designing and asked for his commentary. He also plans on forwarding it to others in order to get their feedback.
Things are looking up... now for this user testing...
