****** DETAILS ******


2050: A Journey

-May you live in interesting times

2050: A Journey is an online community effort to Blog until the year 2050. It’s an endeavor to interact, publish and 'live' in a cyber community until the year 2050. The team comprises of Bloggers from around the world that will Blog on various topics. It’s a great way to appreciate the Blog revolution as well as recognize and experience the evolution of internet based communication tools such as the Blog itself. It will be a fun experience and enable users to interact across borders, cultures and beliefs.

The Goal:

[1] Sustain a Blog community until the year 2050

[2] Participate in various projects online and offline for the betterment of the world

[3] Chart the evolution of internet throughout the 45 years to the year 2050

[4] Document the development of the community (yearly report, etc)

[5] The team will comprise of Bloggers from around the world that are genuinely interested to Blog and realize the dream

[6] The Blog will NOT serve/ contain any commercial/ business elements or advertisements unless agreed by the team. Nevertheless, team members can advertise (not spam) their own services.

[7] The Blog will be a community bulletin board

[8] The Blog will be age sensitive and shall NOT contain any pornography, profanity, vulgarity, drug/ tobacco adverts, hate messages, racism, religious fundamentalism, etc.

[9] The Blog will remain an informal effort but promote the creative works of the Bloggers in a progressive and fun environment.

[10] frm Sukanya: HEALTHY DISCUSSIONS ARE ENCOURAGED BUT NO QUARRELS. THERE ARE MANY OTHER PLACES
TO QUARREL. THIS SPACE SHOULD NOT ONLY BE A PLATFORM OF BLOGGING BUT SHOULD FORM
THE BASE OF FRIENDLY RELATIONSHIP AMONG BLOGGERS.

The Material/ Post:

[1] The Blog will contain all types of post including text, images, audioblog and videoblog.

[2] The Blog has no specific theme; Bloggers can choose themselves to Blog about anything from daily life logs to current events.

[3] The post may provide links to the Bloggers own web logs; especially Bloggers whose posts serve the interest of many readers such as book reviews, movie reviews, etc.

[4] The Blog serves an excellent venue to promote events, announcements, community projects, and personal ads such as freelancing offers and personal business offers of Bloggers.

[5] The Blog post can be in ANY language and the Bloggers can choose to translate the post or explain it if they want

[6] The Blog serves as a board to display the cultural values/ life of Bloggers from diverse backgrounds


Members/ the Team:

[1] Anyone can apply to be part of the team. Just email earth2050@gmail.com or post a message in the Comments Section with your email where the invitation would be sent

[2] To ensure the continuity of the project, the Bloggers will be from a diverse community/ geographically scattered.

Issues:

[1] Blogger/ Blogspot are chosen as it’s the most stable platform and has the potential to last the duration of the project. In any case, if the platform is dissolved by the company/ or another suitable platform exists of we manage to host on our own, and then we may change the host and Blog software. Blogger presents a complete platform together with image hosting, so as to provide an easy, no hassle platform with the least management problems.

[2] Having many team members will ensure the continuity of the posts so as to not burden Bloggers. (Example: 20 team members; 20 posts per week or 20 Bloggers; 20 posts for 20 weeks i.e. 1 post per Blogger per 20 weeks)

[3] Suggest a name for the project and a description or tagline. The current name: [2050: A Journey] and tagline [May you live in interesting times] will be used until a new one is chosen.

[4] Tag or Logo for the project will be available once a suitable name is agreed. Team members are welcome to come up with tags, buttons, logos, banner, java tags and java buttons.

[5] Anyone who can develop a simple and nice blog template for this blog please email us.

[6] All said, lets have fun!

Hey Ghost Particle, thanx for blogrolling me. I browsed your blog, wow, nice pictures, nice everything, a passionate person you must be...

Just saw that you claimed 'Earth 2050', interesting, I'd like to hear your thoughts, as a scientist and all.

Furthermore: greetings and good luck with everything.

I am not sure if I wanna join in yet. Ill stay in the sidelines and watch before I jump in. One comment though. Did you folks think of running your own blog using Movable type and host it instead of using blogspot?. Gives you better tools and allows for better collaboration and efficient management of the blog.

sukhanya said...

I have sent email requesting to be counted in for.. the 2050 dream.

One more thing to be added is : HEALTHY DISCUSSIONS ARE ENCOURAGED BUT NO QUARRELS. THERE ARE MANY OTHER PLACES TO QUARREL. THIS SPACE SHOULD NOT ONLY BE A PLATFORM OF BLOGGING BUT SHOULD FORM THE BASE OF FRIENDLY RELATIONSHIP AMONG BLOGGERS. RESTRICTING THE NUMBER OF CONTRIBUTORS MAY SOUND RIDICULOUS BUT THEN WE DONT WANT MORE NUMBER OF PEOPLE LEADING TO CHAOS. THIS IS MY HUMBLE SUGGESTION. WOULD BE NICE IF ACCEPTED.
Take care

Nice blog and great effort by the moderator and the members!

A "sincere" suggestion:- You, all, can put Goal[2] on top and goal[1] below it. Believe me Goal[1] indicates that you are struggling for existence.

With time and circumstances, goals change.

Dont take it otherwise, and its only a Well-wish suggestion.
