This morning I recieved an email from American Public Radio (who produce many shows for NPR), regarding a new web community they’ve just launched called Gather.com.
I haven’t taken he time to check it out much, but it looks interesting. Here’s the skinny on the from APR:
“Gather.com is a place to share your passions, to learn from others with similar values, and to explore the world around you. The Gather.com community helps identify the best of what’s shared there. This means you can spend less time looking for information or inspiration, and more time experiencing it. American Public Media and Gather.com invite you to let people know what’s on your mind — anytime.
Others are already connecting on Gather.com. Take Michael, AKA “e-to-the-nth,” for instance. He submits a series of “spiritual meanderings” on topics from child rearing to baseball. Robert from Cambridge, Massachusetts, questions the place of evolution in the scientific world. Amy from San Francisco has her own food blog. Macky, mother of four, tackles the problem of mastering new technologies. And you can share anything you wish. Whether you want to find people who are well informed on political issues, books, food, wine, adventure travel, new technology, or public radio, you should find a core of smart engaged people interested in the same subjects at Gather.com.”
