we have a big problem...

Broken-system

our community connections have eroded. our local knowledge has been forgotten. the community web of resources and relationships that once sustained us has been replaced by a global economic beast that is compromising our future. it's urgent that we evolve our culture and figure out a more efficient and interdependent way to live.

... but there's a big solution

Community-network

the community operating system will change all this. In such a scenario, the same technologies that currently power social networks, online marketplaces, ad services and recommendation engines, will instead be used to provide seemless access to the community resources and opportunities that can help us.
