Alex Steed is the blogger at Make Something Happen Blog, the blog of the Point. Alex is doing interviews, articles, and roundups. I was just interviewed!
From The Point's About page:
The Point is a website for organizing group actions. The Point can be used for:
- Activism: Advocating an issue on The Point is different from organizing a traditional petition or boycott -- on The Point, no one acts until enough people agree to take action to force a solution to the problem.
- Fundraising: Unlike traditional fundraisers, on The Point, no one parts with a dime until enough people pledge funds to reach the tipping point.
- Creating a Social Contract: Some group activities require safety in numbers to be worthwhile. The Point lets you form a contract with your peers that no one is obligated to uphold until the tipping point is reached.
I haven't had time to explore it - anyone else? Your thoughts?
