A better way

You might get stuck on Facebook thinking, "There's got to be a better way."

A social network with social values. A safety net. I got to talking about it with friends at a small web design shop, both veterans of venture-backed startup turmoil.

No safety net. But what if there was? How about the power of the internet to connect people as a way to create a common good? 

Simple shared values. Simple membership payments. Aggregated into a great guild.

Social benefit coalitions are the stuff of many a political fantasy. From the utopian socialism of The Jungle to the techtopia counteracting Manna's networked human slavery to the thrills and chills vision of Daniel Suarez's Freedom TM. Making one real seems to be closer than ever to our grasp. It's just a better social network.
