In each Network (place) there can be Groups

Groups: People who want to do something together!
Groups can be public, private or hidden

People, Groups & Doing

Our Past, Our Future,

Our Hopes, Our Dreams,

Our Grief, Our Joy,

Our Groups, Our Plans,

Our Work, Our Play,

Yes, sometimes it is about me,

But more often it is :-

about us, about ours, about we
Kinda more about Us, Ours and We and not so much about Me

Potential Multi-disciplinary ICT Project


Not just for those interested in tech


What makes a Place? - Its People and their Values and Dreams, Culture, History, Archaeology, Heritage, Biology, Botany, Voluntary, Drama, Film, Photography, Journalism, Business, Environment ?


Deals with both core and applied tech


Open-Source Software ecosystem is expanding rapidly. The integration and cross-fertilization of new ideas over hundreds of different locations would feed on itself.
Eventually, could be self-financing and more!
How Can This Be Funded ?

There is a facility for Directories.

A Voluntary Directory, Business Directory, Ads Directory and a Jobs Directory.

Eventually, over a number of years, there could be a 21st Century equivalent of the GAA (Blue) Phone Book for every area which would be aggregated nationally as well as a version of the Wicklow Community Directory for every area aggregated nationally and with moderated reviews.


Each network could be assembled and moderated by local schools (transition year pupils). If revenue is eventually generated and is in excess of expenses the surplus could be shared with the schools.

For initial funding possible sources include Eu InterReg, Leader, Wicklow County Enterprise Board, Enterprise Ireland, Social Entrepreneurs Ireland, Ashoka, Irish Research Council and on the commercial front  Automattic, the overall founders/mentors of all things WordPress, BuddyPress and bbPress, may be supportive.

Connected Communities

Current social network emphasis can be overly concentrated on me, mine, more of me and me again and me of course and then there is me and not forgetting me on holiday.

There may be lots of situations  where self interest is bound up with and can be more effectively accommodated and promoted alongside the interests of other people.

A small group of thoughtful people could change the world. Indeed, it's the only thing that ever has. - Margaret Mead

Well, what about starting in our place ?

This is an effort to harness the very best of tech to allow people to do great things together.
