I'm increasingly drawn to the Linked-In member-invites-member model, which can be replicated easily enough using a blog platform.Jeremyhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/07506241936615649754[email protected]tag:blogger.com,1999:blog-8686769.post-1163512162740657762006-11-14T14:49:00.000+01:002006-11-14T14:49:00.000+01:00Woa, not a techieperson but a potential writer.

Seems like a good idea and how will it be gatekeeped. Wil how will people join. Bearing in mind, Nigerians LOVE/LIKE anything with a hint of exclusivity to it.

It would be an opportunity to:<BR/>a) Find and establish relationships with others with similar ideas and ambitions<BR/>b) Find out about other projects of a similar nature, both planned and actual<BR/>c) Find out about the social and professional networks that surround these activities - funding organisations, local and international finance opportunities, social networks based around development (many of the ethnic groups have these already), friends of Nigeria who would be interesting in offering specific types of support etc.<BR/><BR/>That is the brief, in brief. The site is not about making money, although obviously it should work towards being self-supporting.
