Each of these platforms can either be expanded into a community, or include a community dimension: this is expanded in further detail at www.globaldistrict.com. A major benefit to sharing or creating a group for using an application is that associated or complimentary products or services can increase sales, or general uptake of your own.
Our components are designed to work together, and recognize that managing people is not the same as managing content, and that there remains tremendous untapped potential for interactivity when promoting or supporting products and projects... for this we have integrated a dedicated mark-up app. called onekana™.
A platform can be modified in the same way.
Mark up: as you add items and objects to your graphics you are:
There are different tools for different types of graphic to integrate with your platform: some examples are represented here linking to the relevant onekana section.
There is a full demonstration with playback at www.onekana.com.
So rather than a community going global, it is yourproject.goesglobal instead. This is explained above, but if this site has one main goal, it is that you should be able to discuss a project with me, or have a meeting with any knowledgeable consultant, and at the end of the meeting have something that you can log into, and start using right away.
If there are gaps, or modifications, then these are defined - a couple of lines is usually all you need - it can be built on and built in later by any of the above.
The community dimension is now handled by www.globaldistrict.com. With some of the platforms a community dimension can be plugged in (e.g. a tenant association), in others they can be shared, and so "expanded" into communities (marketplaces, festivals, community services). The intended benefits of this are described on Global District.
The mark up application that could do so much it drove me mad, is now a standalone application here and is called onekana™, and is a key differentiator for many of the platforms: www.onekana.com.
