We are working on developing some ideas for web communities that are topical and current and tied into the new generation of what the web is becoming. Web 2.0 has been defined as many things. Our ideas center around the fact that people want to be a part of a safe and secure web community that is centered around topics they are passionate about and that help them connect online and off with others that are as passionate as they are about their topics. They don't want the ads and the noise. They don't like corporate involvement. Just a grass-roots, down to earth, safe and secure community built on common interests and trust. Everyone wins.
Elegant in its simplicity, but the devil's in the details. That's what we're working on. Our guiding lights are Don Tapscott, author of Wikinomics: How Mass Collaboration Changes Everything, and David Silver, Author of Smart Start-Ups. These two fellas have planted the seeds and given some pretty detailed road maps for this venture to be successful.
So I put these questions to those who view this entry:
- What are you so passionate about that you would join a community centered on that passionate subject?
- Would you pay $1.99 a month to have some security (i.e. everyone will have to prove they are who they say they are) and no ads?
- Would you like to help?
I look forward to hearing from you!
