meeting with hearth.net
Today ecobasa's founder Arne was meeting two lovely people for hearth.net a tcheque start-up creating a gift-economy platform with a mobile app.
We exchanged a lot of experiences, plans and strategies and agreed that we share the same vision and values and that we should collaborate as much as possible. Also of course we have similar approaches and challenges. They will discuss the topics of open-source and open-data so we can exchange data, of course only with the consent of our users. We all aggreed that it is good to have diversity and more alternatives for gift-economy platforms and communities, but we will look for ways to mutualy support each other. If something like this does not already exist, we would like to initiate a gift-economy network alliance where we all agree on the same values and purpose, and to work in that same direction. If you are aware of something like this, please let us know and also if you would like to join it with your project!
Greetings from Petr, Olga and Arne
