Hey Sam and OWS,

Saw this today and I'm still interested in helping you guys launch a
community site on Ning.

Any way I can swing down today and discuss how to help the movement online?

hi Jonathan,

i can't speak for the working group as a whole or anything, but i can
say that we're generally not interested in relying on any kind of
hosted/commercial service for our core discussions and networks. i think
that accurately echoes the sentiment of most of what i've seen discussed.

    Let's talk - prices start at $25/month but if you'd be willing to be
    a press example, I could waive the fee for a period of time to get
    you started.

    I'm based in NY and would love to meet to show you a demo. I could
    swing downtown tomorrow if it makes sense for you.

        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 social 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 grow 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 campaign
        Obama Alumni Network - - Private
        network for 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.
