Become a Sixth Square Pump Primer

    Want to get a jump on the newest topics to hit Sixth Square? Be among the first to contribute your opinions? The envy of your friends? And maybe get a little cash along the way?

    Yes, yes, and yes, you say? Well then sign up as a Sixth Square Pump Primer.

    As a Pump Primer, you’ll get a heads-up on the topic of the day and first crack at sharing your views. The general public will see your comments — along with the prompt itself — when it goes live for the world at large. You’ll have at least 48 hours to send in your contribution before we open it up.

    For each topic, we’ll pick the comment that wins “top comment” honors. That commenter will see his or her contribution highlighted on Sixth Square, as well as a small monetary gift. In order to qualify, you’ll have to get your comment in during the Pump Primer “advance window.”

    All this and more will be detailed in Sixth Square Snapshot, a weekly newsletter sent only to Pump Primers, which details the winners of the previous week’s prompts and outlines the current week’s prompts. There’ll be some bonus topics along the way and other areas where you’ll be able to contribute.

    Sound good? To get started, click here send us an e-mail telling us why you’d like to enroll in the Pump Primer program. We look forward to your contributions.
