The inspiration for ifnotnow.netis long and convoluted… but nutshell version…
For me, My Space was more about image than it was about the people whose profiles those images represented.
I am too old for all of that…. I want big things out of my life…. I want to know real people with real feelings…. and I am in love with the internet… with the possibilities it creates… with the world it opens up.
My fellow creators and I thought.. why not build a user generated website that supports people in being their best selves, rather than their best seen selves. Why not create a community of people who live by the code “A life unexamined is not worth living”… why not create a forum that might inspire them to think a little more deeply… and to interact with other people who are also in search of a richer, fuller life?
That does not mean that everyone on the site is brave or honest… nor are they on my vodcast…….for me that’s part of the experience… who do you believe? And most importantly… why? For me, that’s half the lesson.
