JellyFields is a bottom-up media network. What Wikipedia did for the production of historic content, like encyclopedias, using collaboration, JellyFields does for the cultivation, organization, and personalized-distribution of media (like news and videos) using Shared-Interest Networking. Shared-Interest Networking is a patent-pending human networking structure that we created to harness our collective intelligence and thus enable bottom-up media.
Put another way, it's a fun way for a community to seamlessly pool their energy around shared interests to cultivate and spread knowledge and break group barriers.
Our goal is to free ourselves from our dependence on information gatekeepers.
If you want a more detailed explanation. But the short story is that JellyFields allows you to network online like you do in the real world. In the real world, networking is not person-to-person: It's person's interest to another person's interest. That structure is what allows people to pool mental resources to accomplish a common goal even if they belong to different groups. That's why social and professional networks (person-to- person networks) are full of random irrelevant information, whereas in the real world your network contacts rarely share irrelevant information with you.
All JellyFields does is allow people to network meaningfully by networking their interests. It's simple but as JellyFields grows, you'll see that the impact on the cultivation and spread of knowledge is incredible.
- Step 1: Register
- Step 2: Create as many interests areas as you want.
- Step 3: Add relevant blog entries, links to online content into your interest areas, and questions and comments
- Step 4: Invite people you respect to link their related interest to yours.
Then, JellyFields will organize all the sharing going on across your various interest areas by subject and energy on a newspaper-like front page that is optimized for spreading ideas. As you network grows you'll receive incredible content recommendations. And things you post will naturally flow to the right people within and far outside your network.
