  • Meet Bob. Bob is an ordinary guy, with an ordinary life. But, there is one thing interesting about him, he loves fishing..
  • ----- Meeting Notes (6/5/11 16:40) -----He could spend the whole day fishing.
  • ----- Meeting Notes (6/5/11 16:40) -----And the whole night fishing too.
  • ----- Meeting Notes (6/5/11 16:40) -----And at rare moments when he is not fishing, he's thinking about it.
  • ----- Meeting Notes (6/5/11 16:40) -----Bsides fishing, bob spends time building up his fishing toolbox, making sure that he has all the equipments he needs. He also reads heavily on books related to fishing and he attends fishing conferences. As you will know by now, fishing is his life and passion.
  • ----- Meeting Notes (6/5/11 16:40) -----He's in a dilemma. On one hand, he loves fishing, but on the other hand, he is an environment enthusiast. Information provided from the newspaper are one-sided, and he wished he could have a discussion with someone who knows the subject and have a further understanding of it.
  • ----- Meeting Notes (6/5/11 16:40) -----So, he went on to approach his friends. Not surprising, none of his friends are free to talk to him about fishing, and even if they are free, they don't have the knowledge to hold a meaningful discussion with him. So he went to chat sites. Yes, there are a ton of people there willing to talk to him. But, it is hard to find someone who knows the topic. ah ha! now he found some fishing forums and q&a sites.. yes, people here are really kind to help him and they know the subject well. The only drawback is that it usu takes days to weeks for him to get a decent response.
  • Product showcase (screenshots) + vision + what we are about
  • ----- Meeting Notes (6/5/11 16:40) -----It is a simple solution, but the creation of it is tricky. It demands 2 important questions to be answered. 1. How can we find the right match that is customized to our user?2. How can we have sufficient user base to provide a decent match?
  • Distinction – not about creating communities globally from scratch. We are about bringing existing online / offline communities together on glucial where they can interact with each other meaningfully.

THE DAILY NEWS<br />THE WORLD’S FAVOURITE NEWSPAPER<br />www.dailynews.com<br />- Since 1879<br />Fishes Are Dying!<br />World A generation ago, most people believed that our oceans represented an endless resource. Today, decimated populations of once-abundant marine species and the destruction of important habitats demonstrate that we are taking more from the oceans than the oceans can produce. If we truly are to institute sustainable management for protecting our oceans, we must act boldly, decisively, innovatively, and quickly to incorporate the following principles into our ocean management.<br />
