Lessons from a petition = We R hiring!


Recently we decided to post a petition to get Floorball into the US school system, Click banner on top of this page if u did not already.
Interest flared and many good people signed. But some prominent geeks and gufuses did not - Ok we will not hang them out here - but you know what we can...lol. Well maybe we do that one day - since if people do not care about Floorball in the us school system - well then we do not think they are good representatives for Floorball.

Anyway that is not the point with this very post. We want to share what we learned instead...
Here are our lessons from online petitions - Floorball or not.
A) To have people sign you must approach then with direct messages like email, facebook and similar
B) Almost no one sign from an image or a blog posting
C) It is utterly hard to have people spread the idea in their own network of social media, some do but they are extremely rare

Conclusion?
We are hiring a driven lunatic that want to change the US school system with a petition to to get Floorball into the US school system. You will need to put this on top of your daily agenda and everyhing less but some hundred thousand globally harvested signatures is bad. You will have to have an extensive email network and be able to build a blog and extensive presence on social media.
Payment is good in terms of a personal fulfillment that you did something reasonable decent with your life. You might meet Arne Duncan or his successor as the project is wrapped up. Someone might make a statue of you one day. And you will become an expert on how Floorball, the US school system and how social media works.
Applications are accepted from today - from anywhere in the world - teams of people are welcome to join for this cause.

This position is only open to people interested in paradigm shifts.

Caution

Research suggest that eye-injuries are more common in Floorball as compared to Tennis, but less common as compared to Squash (similar to Racquetball).
To minimize this risk of injury Floorballcentral recommend: Use certified protective eye-wear (mandated in many European areas for the youth). Do not lay down on the court. Follow the rules strict on stick height.

Also if you get addicted to this sport - do not blame us!
