I am the Mathematics Editor with a new Internet start-up called Zenome (www.zenome.com).
The idea behind Zenome is to build collaborative, highly functional, Web Communities, representing the combined knowledge and experience of its members. To start, Zenome will be gathering annotated links to relevant Web pages as well as spawning discussion groups for topics of interest. Many more knowledge sharing/leveraging features will follow.
I want to invite you all to get involved in building a Math Community that everyone can benefit from.
I've seeded the Mathematics Community with some initial data. Have a look at:
A couple of ways that Zenome is different than existing directories/communities:
* The intent is to pay both Community editors and page indexers a percentage of the advertising revenue generated by the site. The commissions would be relatively small to start, but it is our way of trying to say "thank you" to the Community.
* Zenome gathers much more meta-data about each page indexed than traditional directories - and over time we intend to use this meta-data to vastly enrich the user experience of Zenome over time.
* Zenome is meant to grow "organically" - with the directory structure set, in the most part, by indexers and editors. Everyday contributors will have a much greater impact on all aspects of their respective Zenome communities.
* Zenome's self-organizing tools should ensure that users receive the most relevant search results. The self-organizing algorithms should also ensure that Zenome's results improve as the directory grows.
* The knowledge encapsulated in the pages listed in Zenome categories will be leveraged to create new knowledge - it won't just be static.
I'd love to hear your feedback on the Mathematics Community at Zenome. Like I said above, I've just started working on this site and I'm hoping together we can build it into something great!
