    We are interested in the uses and opportunities offered by the OpenSocial framework in conjunction with the entity we are creating called “Chagora.com” (under construction as informational for potential Angel investors).

    My background is in Cultural Anthropology and my partner is a recent top grad at Georgetown in Politics and Economics.

    I believe OpenSocial and associated capabilities may be extremely helpful in building something essential. This has to do with what might be called electoral/geographic networking facilitators (patent pending) as part of what MUST be a non-partisan platform for a meaningful online public square.

    When combined with an additional patent pending financial function featuring a “MicroDonaton” capability (think group action) with unified accounting and reporting for both sides in the transaction , other sevices and particularly live elements…

    Will drive a natural unification online of donors and recipients in both the charity and cause based areas.

    This has huge potential benefits for representative government and has application worldwide.

    Most people never give to a cause or political candidate. Older people aren’t yet using social media much at all!

    There’s a great megaphone for people’s voices coming! It has the power to balance existing concetrated “money/speech” and re-invigorate people with their own capability to effect their world.

    Please check my little blog at http://CulturalEngineer.blogspot.com and I would like a chance to speak with you on these matters.

    P.S. Happy to discuss the monetization which depends on NO part of any contribution.
