The very first time I tried to talk about Steemit to strangers was in an outreach event that #SteemPH organized with the group Alinaga in September last year. It was an art and music session for kids with special needs, and after a whole day of fun, we were given time to speak with the parents about Steemit. We didn't really expect that and so it was an impromptu kind of speech that my partner, @steemitph, came up with. I was delighted to see that most of the parents there were really interested to find out more about what Steemit is and how it works. After some 5 minute talk about the platform, the parents approached us with a lot of questions; Is steemit in facebook? What can I post?, how do I sign-up?, how exactly do you get paid for posting?. I tried to tell them everything I knew from my limited experience at that time and capped all of my answers with instructions to visit the website. During our 2-hour drive going home that day, I told Red that maybe we should have a post that we can refer our "recruits" to. We discussed how we should print the link in a small paper and give them away during our campaigns.
The post would have to answer all possible questions.
Nah. it would be too long.
A page maybe? The page would contain all the links to posts that will be helpful to potential sign-ups and even to newbies.
Ahhhh. Now that's an idea.
Since the projector is going to be an important part of the presentation of Steemit in the upcoming meet-ups, we have decided it was best to buy a brand-new one. All of the second-hand projectors we found online no longer have warranties and we're not sure how long the lamps on those would last. We've scoured through projector reviews and got our top 3 choices:
- Native Resolution - FWVGA (854 x 480)
- Brightness - up to 100 lumens
- Aspect Ratio - 16:9
- Contrast Ratio of 1,000:1
- Lamp life - 20,000 hours
- In addition, it has an HDMI port, USB port, and built-in 2W speakers.
- Resolution - SVGA (800 x 600)
- Brightness - up to 3,200 lumens.
- Aspect Ratio of 4:3
- Contrast Ratio - 15000:1
- It comes with plenty of ports like HDMI 1.4, 2x VGA, Composite video, S-Video, Stereo Out, and RS232C. It also supports 3D content.
- 41-inch projection at 1 meter
- 200 lumens lamp.
- has an HDMI/MHL port,
- integrated SonicMaster speaker
- built-in 6,000mAh battery that doubles as a power bank.
If you have other suggestions though, please feel free to comment down below the brand and model of the projector you have in mind; we will purchase the projector next weekend in time for the first meet-up. If you would like to join us in Malolos, you can find the details here. Or if you would like to be part of any of the future meet-ups, reach out to us by leaving a comment or through the SteemPH Discord Channel
