We just launched the Beta version of SocialRadical.org. Our idea is to have a place for social networking, activism, organizing, polemics and rallying online outside of the mainstream networks. Far too many activists are using Facebook and Twitter for long distance planning and this trend may begin to have disastrous consequences.
Especially with the 2012 G8/NATO Summit soon coming to Chicago.
What we need are programmers who are willing to help me develop the site with Security Culture in mind by building better Facebook integration privacy, user friendly ciphers and encryption.
If you're interested please join us and find me on the site or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
PS! The reason I am posting here is because there have been many people who have mentioned an interest in playing with alternatives to Ning. This could be a great experiment for those of you. The platform has everything the Chainlink does with the added benefit of full customization.
