To give some background information on how we work; we do most online, but we get together every once in a while to discuss. (more…)

Some extra fields:
- Income details, expenses details.
- Pay-pal account ID. We will make a donation button with this ID. Under construction at the moment.
Also I changed some details on the edit pages.
Social Actions is a website that is working to bring information of different social causes websites like Helpalot together. I had some email contact with Peter Deitz, creator of Social actions, and joined the Google Group working on a mash-up he’s working on.
I hope this is the beginning of something big. It deals with a problem that you see on the internet in many fields; There are a number of sites dealing with (user generated) content in a field. There is no monopoly of one site and it is difficult to find out for users where to search or become active.
We want ways to make use of the diversity and different evolutionary paths different sites are taking to make sure a field keeps innovative, but also we want an easy overview and integration of information.
It all deals with the fragmentation and integration of information, and aligning common goals while keeping individual custom tailored goals in place. Probably one of thé problems of the internet right now and even more so in the near future.
Once we find out/design a good model for how to set up a collaboration in the field of social causes that works on all levels and for all parties involved, it might serve as a good example for other fields.
So I guess the question is, how to design such a model. Getting the different websites involved with this problem by working on this social actions mash-up is step one.
If this grows out to be a major meta platfom, I wonder if we’ll end up with a meta meta site that integrates these types of meta websites into one website that gives you full access in an easy way to all information that is available in the world on any topic.
I’d also like to be a part of that project, so when you’re reading this in 3 years and working it; email me .
