Last week, after going back and forth with Sportaphile about whether Hip Hop
or Parents raised the kids I asked him:
If I started a website, voter registration, polling, policy advocacy etc, what would be a meaningful way to allow people to facilitate working for social change, in their respective cities, while communicating suggestions challenges and outcomes via the site?While he didn't respond, another reader, C.Dubb did on some, you
have good banter on your site, but whats next? She said she was interested in
what I mentioned about a site and wanted to work on it.
I was stuck because she forced me to act and think.
For the last three days we have been going back and forth over what such an organization/website would like.
I mentiond the idea to my homie Minnesota, and he said that he knows 1000
people that would donate $25 each to an organization that
distributed fellowships to support to artist who make the kind music that
we liked. Jean Grae, The Black Lily Ladies, The Next Talib, The Next Tribe, etc.
We have a loose outline of what the site/organization can do.
So far we are envisioning a website with a moveon.org for the hood component.
My interaction with Sportaphile confirmed that it has to be a two pronged
effort. One on the hip hop front, another on the home front.
I am reaching out to you all, as based on the comments we care.
Now I am taking a step out on faith and putting the words into action.
However I would like feedback from you, as what you think will shape
what the site looks like and functions.
If there are any programmers or people who have run web communities
please get at me at email@example.com. I will need your help.
Here is the survey. I keep my surveys short and to the
point because I respect your time and I value the information.
