hi all -

Ning is a commercial platform that has been struggling to hold it's turf
since it launched 4-5 years ago.  We are already covering Ning's
functionality between WP/Buddy and YouTube channels.  Is there a need
that this would solve?  In my opinion there is no advantage to adding
another proprietary channel.

I'm based in NY and would love to meet to show you a demo. I could swing

Hey OWS,

First off, I think what you've built is amazing and would love to help
with your current site and online community.

I work at Ning, which is the world's largest platform for creating
websites and currently have over 100,000 communities live today. 
What I do
at Ning is help activists, artists, brands, etc. use our platform to
and engage their base.  We've had a great amount of success with
Causes and
I would love to work with Occupy Wall St. to help launch an awesome
community for organizers and supporters.

I've attached a one-sheet with more information about Ning and here are
some examples that I hope you find helpful:


Connected Peace Corps - –
Community of over 24,000 former Peace Corps volunteers
T. Boone Pickens "Pickens Plan" - –
Alternative energy army with over 200,000 members
IAVA's "Community of Veterans" - - Private
network of Iraq/Afghanistan veterans
Joe Sestak for Senate Case Study - - Network disbanded after
Obama Alumni Network - - Private network
alumni of the 2008 Obama/Biden campaign
I'd love to set up a call or meeting to discuss more in detail and give
you a proper demo next week.  I'm based in Brooklyn and would be
happy to
meet when/where is most convenient for you.
