Update: 3 Editors and 24 Contributors on siliconANGLE.com – Open Source Approach to Profit Sharing April 10, 2009Posted by John in social media.
I’m really happy with the recent activity around what was launched as a side project of mine – siliconANGLE.com. As of today we have 3 editors: me, Mark Rizzn Hopkins, and Rex Dixon. Even more exciting is that we have 24 contributors signed up to blog with us.
With the growth of siliconANGLE going strong, I am announcing that 70% of all the financial revenue from the blog will go back into the siliconANGLE group and team. My goal is to reward the group with a big share in any profits so that the group can keep the mission alive – great people, great content, quality opinion and analysis. In my model a great blogger can make a good living doing what they do best – riding the “real time wave” and serving up high quality content.
I want to personally thank Randy Adams and the searchme.com team for being the 1st corporate member of this community. I have a few other proposals out for inaugural corporate members so I hope we hear from them. Being a corporate member allows us to continue the mission and be a part of this new emerging community.
siliconANGLE is not a boring group and I love the quality of the people involved. As we say the best blog post in our community is on that has an Angle or Opinion with a capital O.
