To create a wiki-based website that becomes a go to portal if you want to help.

The website's purpose is to inspire and help websurfers do something that makes a difference in the world on something they truly care about and to be used as a platform to share information themselves,

Chris Anderson talks about combining crowd, light and desire in the referenced talk on How web video powers global innovation

crowd=people with common cause-burden
light=TRULY open web platform
desire=database of info, inspiring content, support to get you to achieve what you want.

I've contacted a few friends hoping they'll get back to me to help but I thought it's a good idea so why wait to put it out there, right?

I've typed some notes. These are 2 links to the notes via scribd.com.
if you think its interesting please use it, share it, comment, advise.

I think this can work if it satisfies these conditions
-it's easy to use, highly interactive, and maybe at first most importantly appealing to the eye
-it's free, all cc licensing material,no ads, wiki driven, cloud driven and you have the invaluable support of the internet nerd community giving technical advice to change the website for better and to get rid of spammers and other profiteers/pranksters
- it's primarily video based. Video allows you receive information on a broader, deeper level.

Thanks :-D
