It occurred to me awhile ago that the commentariat here is among the best - we have such knowlegable and passionate writers, if only that power could be harnessed for good instead of… well, whatever it is we do here. So it got me thinking; what if we got a few people together and started our own blog. My vision is this; a collective of commenters cum bloggers who would commit to posting at least one thing a day in the categories of tech, politics, geek culture, or some other topic - not in the style of boingboing, but instead more Gizmodo/i09/gawker-like, with less Nick Denton and less sleezy, salacious, and slanderous articles. The site would be a true collective in the sense that it would be governed and managed by contributors, who would also earn a stake in the site and benefit if it was commercially successful,
I think I even posted this idea before - maybe it was just a private conversation. But I was reminded of it recently by @William_Holz who seemed to think it was a good idea as well. So I’m throwing this out to the world - is this something we could do? Who would we invite? What form would it take? What would the structure look like? What would we call it?
