I'm so excited for this and as a Creative Mornings person, I've already joined.
Tina aka Swiss-Miss has been doing a lot for designers and design lovers. I hope this one gets to live.
I don't know, I feel like Tina Roth Eisenberg really considers product stewardship in the products and services she creates. This is clearly something she's wanted to do since launching Creative Mornings (which really is the only "networking" series that I've ever found useful) and so I'm optimistic about it.
Personally, I've never found LinkedIn useful for anything other than aggravation and spam. Especially when it comes to finding collaborators, jobs or studios as a creative. I just don't think that was a platform created for that professional set- it's always been more practical for corporate anything. This is like- I need a sound designer. There's these companies that do it, or these individuals if I just need one person. Cool. There's none of the- hey I see you worked here or on this, my algorithm found something that's completely irrelevant for you!
Cool, I'll keep an eye on it. Lots of these things out there I feel like. Maybe we need a network of networks. ?
It's a global directory of creative companies and individuals. No advertisements, no algorithms.
What is it? Another directory?
