Our social network of action – Chattodo
I am making a social network of action, the back end journey of which is made up of all I am showcasing below. And its backend is not just about code.
It is a chat product designed for action upon conversations with feeds of action from ones coworkers.
What do I mean by action?
Action means todos. Everything that one has to do will be done, by ones action, not by ones talks.
Why is this time the right time for this idea?
Aren’t you getting bored of the social network of talks already.
This is the first and the second last time we are going to talk about the idea of a social network of action. Till we build it into the hands of a million people.
I hope you reached here on this note from the web page http://culture.preseed.in in the screenshot below. For then we would trust, you clicked on the ‘why’ there too. Do click on why.
How are we going to build the social network of action?
First, we thought we will build it from scratch by ourselves, one step at a time. It was a matter for about 10 big steps spread over 3 years. So we took the first step — www.todoed.co. We made this productivity tool, to first be a productivity tool better than the wunderlists, any.dos, and swipesapps of the world. And then on top of that, we create the social networking layer.
All in all the goal was to make a product upon which communication can be more actionable right at the instance of communication. And then all that action clubbed with the action of research and findings when collaborating, leading upto feeds for such collaborating users.
The culture that these feeds will lead upto will be quite different from the culture the feeds of facebook lead the world to.
Although best would be to build it in collaboration with either one of the todo listing tools listed above.
What is the advantage we are bringing to any one of these todo listing tools listed above, for them to collaborate with us?
We grow the vision of such todo listing tools to a point that as a consumer web product, one of these todo listing tools which assumes our vision for productivity, may stand a chance to be more relevant than Facebook, Gmail or Slack for those who want to be productive. Thus increasing the marketing potential of the todo listing apps by a 1000 times.
Here is a video quickly skimming through the wireframe of Chattodo –
I also firmly believe that there is far more knowledge and power in collaboration upon a common goal, than there can be in education or corporate slavery.
This implies a new kind of education — education upon collaboration. Which can be offered to the world if education metrics can brought upon the act of collaboration itself. If such collaboration can be measured as education. But that is level 2 of the implications of a social network of action I want to build. The level 1 of it is, the social network of action itself.
The level 1 and level 2 of my vision collectively will impact two major industries like never beofore -
- Social Networking Industry
- Education Industry
