What’s a problem you think technology should be solving in your personal or professional life but doesn’t exist or the solutions add more stress than it’s worth? [Asked by PDN]

  1. 1. So many habit apps, but none seem to try to learn from your data or allow for more social collaboration and or management.
    2. A lot of community-oriented platforms seem to amplify transactional relationships instead of authentic ones.

  2. we built a community platform that might amplify authentic relationships. If you want to use it with PDN hit me up.

  3. you can be able to export the data and white-label. Then there’d be a subscription like Slack. Or not, then it would be free.

  4. The problem with community platforms that over-focus on narrow interests is that they become bubbles and don’t effectively cross-pollinate, becoming hyper tribal and averse to change and outsiders.

    The problem with community platforms that focus on skills, or what you can do is those system incentivizes people to see you as a resource to be used / or trying to figure out your status/value.

    Linkedin for example which is optimized for professional development with a focus on skill, is not a community even though people get a lot of value out of it and “Communities” exist within the platform.

    It’s a network. People broaden the scope of community and often confuse communities for what is actually a network, which is more transactional because it’s a perceived worth and exchange centric relationship.

  5. an international curated community of awesome peeps centered around personal development or interests of various kinds. I’ve been abroad since January and have been joining different groups (usually on facebook). I’ve had limited success with ones centered around Digital Nomad/Expats ones, but the best one seemed be around Acro Yoga and Ecstatic dance (people that seem to be into fitness, yoga, community, authentic connection, being silly, and having fun).

  6. Curating community-based on personality/goals with enough variance to allow new voices in (killing group think) – understanding everyone’s schedule/mood enough to suggest a connection point. How might we foster a connection to build stronger individual networks and use that to improve the global network?
