We’re developing solutions to fluidly exchange between and enhance your interest graph and your social graph.
By subscribing to our newsletter, you will be the first to read about our newest contributors, see what’s happening as we move from development to product, and be the first to test the service when we launch.
We’re looking for the place where gamification and accountability converge.
Excellent discussions are founded upon powerful questions, and the attempts, by various people, to solve them.
Everything in this day is “social.” In fact, everything in the past was social, but we hadn’t the venue to label it as such. The grocery store is social, the 2 AM Diner is social, a run at the park is social, and a trip to the library is social. As people navigates their day, they will bump into people they know and initiate social interactions. The web is an exceptionally well-constructed bumping ground where one will go with the intent of running into others. But, with ease of interaction comes heightened expectations for the content people gravitate towards.
Project Icarus will provide mind-twisting articles and media to energize its readers, but almost more importantly, it will generate a social space for people to sort out the details of a piece, explore its meaning and symbolism, question its components, and interact with the creator. Social interaction is integral to the idea behind Project Icarus. We aim to build a community that encompasses a wide spectrum of individuals. From members of academia to war-era grandmothers, Project Icarus will create an outlet for energized discussion around exceptional content.
We are currently in the process of searching for the best platform to base our social culture on.
Without a doubt the public knowledge of Project Icarus is vague. The idea was conceived in January 2011 and has been slow cooking since then. As we continue to grow in numbers and gain momentum, we plan on releasing information regarding our end product up until the day we launch. Unfortunately, the initial information we release will be riddled with commonplace Internet buzzwords. Our current descriptor, “New Social Journalism and Media,” may require a decoder to understand. Stick with us as we disseminate the intricacies of the growing Internet and find our cozy niche.
Looking for Additional Cohorts
Project Icarus’ current members include writers, web developers, musicians, artists, illustrators and social media goons. We’re currently looking to expand our repertoire of involvement. If you are an individual who could categorize his/herself as being one or more of the above categories of people (or even something completely different), please contact us on twitter (@ProIcarus).
We’re looking for creative, impassioned individuals who would prefer to get paid later rather than sooner, if at all.
