Hello, Nice To Meet You.
August 26 2013
Welcome to our new developers blog. So, lots of news to put out there as Grow The Community continues to, well, grow! First off, we have launched a sneak peek of GTC 2.0, as you can see we focused a lot on design and user interface. We are still integrating our tools into this new version, so hang tight and add your email for an update.
Secondly, we have setup the infrastructure for our open-source co-op. Yes that's right, this website is being run by a community of people, each with an equal vote on all decisions, including finances, development, advertising, and research. This is an online co-op, the first of its kind, so anyone can potentially become a member and help shape this website! Cool huh? If you are interested in this idea, then we are interested in talking with you! Please email us today at, email@example.com .
Thirdly, we have a flood of new ideas to rock the intentional community world. We're talking online and offline IC tools. We just finished our prototype for online-consensus meetings (used to manage this site), which we will eventually modify to support in-person consensus meetings. We are continuing development of our shared projects system, soon to be more attractive and versatile, giving distant community members a place to organize and create. We are also working on our multi-language support, as we want to see ICs interacting from all over the world. On top of that, we are going to add an IC Q&A system, think Yahoo Answers + intentional communities.
ICs have been around a long time, but never with the power of the internet at their hands. We can now talk together instantly across the globe, network distant organizations, and organize mass groups of people in hours (Arab Spring were looking at you). We here at GTC think this technology, appropriately used, can greatly benefit the intentional community movement. We believe that if we provide good, solid tools, free of charge, then community members around the world will pick them up and make something big happen.
Get ready for more exciting announcements, please add your email to our mailing list and we will keep you up-to-date.
