We as a user normally sit in the centre of our social networking universe.

Thtat leads us to a few problems:

  • there is a huge amount of information, that come down onto us
  • we have a various of social platforms, that takes plenty of time
  • if we want to collaborate with others, we do not know, what he know

To be the head of our own universe and communicate with more or less digital friends and followers, always trying to bring some order to chaos doesn’t sounds a lot “social”.

What if we start some projects together? Fix some bikes, grill some vegetables or make a new app, in the “real” or “digital” social life?

As you can see, some of the main problems of todays social networking can be solved:

  • The members can act as a filter, to filter all the waste of informations, that are not needed for the specific project
  • new qualities, like “skills”, “time”, personal “knowledge” enter the stage
  • and mainly a project it is about sharing, caring, communicating and interacting, which are essentials of our social being

You can see here a small preview of some of the functions of the final version:
create a bubble, insert an app and connect other bubbles to a network.
You can use the programm in your browser or as an app at your mobile device.

The preview was built by our Designer in order to show first ideas of design and functions to an interested audience.

Update (Nov 2012): We desided to  use PHP.

We are questioning the opa language at the moment!!

Our reasons:

  • very bad documented
  • some functions doesn’t work propperly
  • draggable functions dont work on smartphones
  • animations are not opa’s strength
  • not much people know about it -> bad support

we are looking for alternatives!

Why we chose our programer language: Long time we were discussing about the right script. First we started in jquery, but after we fount opa (http://opalang.org) we felt, this is the right way to go. Even if it is not popular at the moment. Together with html 5 & CSS 3 this will be our base!

Short info about opa: Opa is an open source language for scalable web applications. It can be used at server and client-site: your write in one code and opa compile it to the several scripts. This is why you can generate seperate virutal tasks and conent in one window easily.

For our project we need the freedom of navigation like with opa. We also want to have a good interaction with desktop-navigation.

Other codes we were thinking about: ruby-on-rails, node.js, python.
