Um… but you’re saying: “Nothing’s different”?
Ofcourse, nothing looks different, but then lets remember that our product isn’t the website of Green & White, its the content!
After what’s been perhaps my longest break away from Green & White, and after one of the best 5 months I’ve seen in all of the communities I’ve created in the past, its time to take Green & White up a notch.
…and to think its just been 5 months since the launch, but oh the lessons we have learnt. All in all, Alh last month we had over 45,000 visitors and we appreciate this faith in our product.
Here’s what is going to be “new” and “beta” about Green & White from now on:
1- No more unjust rants –
We’re professionals, we can do better than that. If we DO criticize or rant against someone, we WILL have insight and constructive suggestions for that person / company to improve.
2- Analyze, or go home
I started Green & White with other consultants so that we could offer our analysis to industry news — while breaking news has a warm fuzzy feeling too, we dont want to break a news unless we have analysis as well that will take time.
3- Community Power
That means you! Green & White has some of the strongest, most engaged communities in Pakistan and its really you guys that make this platform what it is. We’re going to make a number of efforts to empower you all even more, help the community get together not just online but also offline with activities. Feel free to give me some ideas at firstname.lastname@example.org so we can build tyres out of those ideas and start kicking them around our heads.
4- Entrepreneurs will prevail –
We’re going to speed up our voluntary efforts for the betterment of entrepreneurs in Pakistan — now that the world is noticing innovators in Pakistan, it is time to build some inspiration, hope and practical help for the few and the brave with fires in their hearts.
We know we could do a LOT to help entrepreneurs (in terms of raising awareness, help connecting to investors or potential customers) but we’ll need your help as well — everyone has to take some time out despite their insanely-busy startup schedule to help us all get to the next level. Email me your ideas and thoughts on this.
If you are in the early stages of your business, tell me what you do and I could either highlight you here.
If you’re a successful businessman or industry leader but now want to help new innovative companies, get in touch with me and I can route you to the right people.
Note again: This is a voluntary effort — lets all be better than everything bad about society around us and stop thinking only in self-interest and lets get involved.
5- Evilness with not prevail
Simply put, we will not allow Green & White to be a platform for libel against any individual or company. We’ve gotten pretty good at filtering the genuine commenters from people who’re coming here just to attack or defame someone else.
To ensure that the people and companies that are highlighted get protection against libel, we will be a bit more strict about removing comments that we feel have mal-intent.
The best way a comment being removed is (1) Dont leave an anonymous comment (2) Make sure you add a URL that we can go to to check out who you are.
More things hopefully in time, but for now we’ve also thrown in more reading space, an actual working “top-10 daily posts” widget, and fixed the email alert issue (sending blank emails).
