`What` means success to you?
Thank you for taking a look at the site and for your positive feedback! At the moment, success means a constant stream of new articles being created, and used, at the site. Google ads are up on the content pages (although they are blocked by various ad-blocking plugins), but my primary focus now is the creation of useful content; this is the kind of site I would personally like to use on a daily basis. The only problem is, I`m writing the majority of the content, so I`m not learning much from it...
The site is a tool used to map the relationships between any possible topics of interest and give people a charted path to new information, beginning with what they already know. As people learn more over time, they add new starting points that connect them to even more topics. I use this method in my everyday life to achieve a sort of hyper-accelerated learning ability. I think that the more we all know, the better we can be at everything we do, the more inventive we are, and the more interesting life will become.
Ultimately, I hope that ad revenue will support the site`s existence, but I am also working through a mechanism for connecting users (knowledge/skills addicts) with the vendors who provide services tailored to their interests.
For example, if a user is interested in mountain biking, the site would advertise the services of local bike shops.
The twist would be that Intermz keeps track of not only the constellation of things each user is interested in, but how those things are related to each other. This kind of "psychological map" can give vendors a new level of insight into potential customers.
Please let me know if there is anything else I can elaborate on.
Thank you very much!
