In looking at Nings I am still amazed on how many Creators are still building tiny social tribal web sites and not thinking more out of the
box. Hint. How to build bigger contracts.
For a Scarsdale Middle school we built a Ning not just for the school, but to connect them with Lincoln Center school with then m in one Ning. It was packed with activity in few days.
We just recommend that two large NYS counties place all their students on a single Ning and make the Groups like Threatre, Sports Technology and then had professional coaches in those industries head forums. Project Based Learning would be hard wired into the real world… Teen 20 anyone!
In many ways we are using Nings just to replace the same in the box tribal company web site thinking. The Ning should be cross tribal thinking. Which brings us to a feature they must add that would yield massive Nings. Ning Merging and Ning blending. Now this gets fun.
There a dozen good Library Nings out there that all replicate discussions with education Nings that blurr into the International Development Nings. Ning Creators along with the Knowledge Boards (A future) can elect to allow reciprocal visiting and membership. Can you imagine how rich in
information a webinar and event calendars would be between these three groups?
Funny how limited our tribal thinking is. If your Ning is a customer relations program the cross pattern would get even more interesting. Let’s say I am managing a John Deer farm tractor Ning. Why not cross it with fertilizer, seed and weather Nings.
Imagine secure cross Ning search engines… Neat huh
So my fellow Creators.. stop the narrow minded tiny tribal Ning mentality and go change the world.
Hey maybe Apple and Microsoft could blend their Ning communities….Well maybe not. Stop laughing because IBM and Linex may do it. On that thought… Anyone want to start a IBM Warp
Ning and link it to Wang Labs?
Hey I could of said Fox News with Michigan Militias. but that would in bad form.
