Bloomington Indiana Startup Weekend Utilized Prologue

When we released the Prologue WordPress theme for group communication, we knew it would be used in innovative ways.

This past weekend we saw it utilized for a Startup Weekend, an event where you can “Build Community and a Company in a Weekend”:

Bloomington, Indiana was a proud host to Startup Weekend, which completed a 54-hour marathon weekend of design, planning and implementation of a new company. Although the organizational structure is still in progress, the consensus of the majority who stuck around for all three days of work is that this was a great experience. There is a strong desire to take our project to the next stage and release our work to the world.

The group used the WordPress Prologue theme to keep up to date with various updates and activities:

We tried to be as transparent as we could (until the legal team advised us to be selective), and evidence of the process is available on the official blog and in our Prologue stream.

  1. I think it worked out pretty well for our event. It would have been nice to get more people contributing, but (a) the password emails weren’t being sent for new registrations, and (b) everyone was too buy, even for a short sentence.

    We had the feed plugged into our twitter account to allow people without Twitter to broadcast to that channel as a group, and to allow people to follow along via tweet streams instead of coming to the site. It didn’t work out as well as planned. Our choice of Twitterfeed forced premature truncations and links back to the site.

    A very promising test, though. Thanks for the theme.

  2. It worked so well that I plan to use it elsewhere. Also it was very easy to setup and to customize! I should know, I’m the Technical Director for the event.

  3. I liked the theme and I found it very interesting to follow this weekend. I found myself checking the website, the ning website, and reading up on personal profiles. I have worked with several people that were involved in the event and considered signing up myself. I will definitely be involved next time.
