In the week after Seth Godin published Poke the Box, people wrote the author sharing stories of how they were taking initiative in their own lives. People were encouraged to write to The Domino Project and share stories of people who are poking the box by going above and beyond to make a difference by doing. These stories were posted and the readers voted on their favorites.
Many of the submissions were about people who were making their workplaces better, some were starting a new business, and many were improving their communities or devising creative philanthropy.
