CREATIVE COLLABORATION & ELLO
Ello is a great place. It’s unlike any other social media platform. More than just being an ad-free community, it’s a place that let creative people of all horizons share their work, their ideas, their philosophy. It attracts talents like a big magnet. And that’s possible because of the very generous nature of Ello. Because of its interface that accommodates words and images so graciously, it’s multi-platform reality and its conversation/storytelling capacity.
As I played with it since a little while now, I realized something fantastic about it. Something that was not embedded in the nature of any other previous platform.
Ello makes collaboration possible. Ello makes collaboration very real.
While all social media platforms promote and fuel « self branding », Ello takes this basic, universal idea and gives it a new swing. It allows people from different craft, from different countries, from different social background to, yes, promote themselves, to show who they are and what they stand for, but more than that, it allows them to meet others, share interests, discuss & even work together wherever they are, seamlessly. Something that other platforms can’t do very well. And that is a very positive aspect of Ello.
Self branding is fun, watching Kim Kardashian's selfies is maybe very entertaining for some people out there, but collaboration is, I think, the next big thing. More than a game, it’s the next art movement, it’s our future social fabric &, I hope, our next economic model.
The ancient world lasted long enough.
It takes a lot of courage to travel to a new world. I would really love to see Ello be our Santa Maria. Or at least be a change agent in our necessary transformation. I think it got everything that it takes for it. Including all the great people that makes this place such a fantastic community.
I say, let’s play together and change this world while we're at it. Starting here. Now. From now on.
