 Technical Steps
  • Identify target audience
  • Our tool gets a file with names and addresses
  • Contact target audience
  • Postcard? Phone call?
  • Provide link from trustworthy site?
  • Generate codes
  • Consider requiring first name + 5-digit code, spelling both out clearly on the postcard.
  • "Enter the name "Fred" and code "XJQ47" to watch your video"
  • Essentially increases code length; greatly increases size of brute-force space.
  • Consider entering home address instead of code and validating if there's a match.
  • Pros: no need to remember code, might sound less sleazy
  • Cons: address discrepancies, multiple occupants per household, more effort to enter
  • Show video, all the way through
  • Administer quiz
  • Send gift card / Pay It Forward / Donate
TODO 9/21:

Nice to have:
  • proper code generation
  • update shipping addresses

Questions, via Carla:
1. What conflicts of interest have you personally experienced in personal or professional roles?
2. If you perceive a potential conflict for yourself, what are some ways you might ensure that this conflict doesn’t lead to unethical behavior for you and others?
3. When have others’ conflicts of interest impacted how you or those you know were treated?
4. What types of policies can or do organizations implement to try to reduce conflicts of interest or their costs?
5. Why do you believe conflicts of interest are so pervasive in society? Why don’t we take more steps to avoid them?
6. Why is it so hard for individuals to recognize their own conflicts of interest, and how is this impacted by behavioral biases?
I think it would be good to have about 4 true/false or multiple choice questions and then, 2 open ended ones that make them think and apply the data to their own lives. (no way to check if they did the 2 open ended ones.)  I don't like the idea of punishing them if they get it wrong on the true/false or multiple choice questions!  Maybe just giving them the answer and then cycling them through the question again.
