I'm fortunate enough to have attended the recent StartingBloc Los Angeles Institute for Social Innovation this past weekend. Since then, I've realized that the purpose behind Cerbumi is still important, and that we haven't found a great solution in the last few years.
I've also come to the realization that the project needs a lot more help... not in terms of development and design resources (goodness, we've needed that for ages), but rather, we could really use more insights about what makes collaboration online effective... and not. There's obviously a lot of updates to be made to the UI and software (a MVC framework and a little jQuery would be nice... ^_^), but more importantly... what is lacking from existing collaborative tools, and how do we facilitate real collaboration online?
This project is still quite nascent, but I'm in it for the long haul one way or another. Who wants to play?
