Not as Overwhelming as You May Think!

If you are following our posts of late, you have an idea of how big our BIG ideas are and some of you may be thinking, “ARE YOU KIDDING ME?”  And the answer is no.  We understand this is big, we want it to be big.  Global, in fact!  We also believe it is very possible to get there.

When we started making this idea a reality about a year ago, it did seem overwhelming at times.  We just took it one step at a time.  Still are in fact, and some of the steps have been retraced.  But we have learned so much and become more confident in the ability to make it real.  In all of our research we’ve found tons of cool organizations and even cooler people  behind it them all.  That’s also when we heard about open sourcing.

What is open sourcing, you ask?  According to the Open Source Initiative, “Open source is a development method for software that harnesses the power of distributed peer review and transparency of process. The promise of open source is better quality, higher reliability, more flexibility, lower cost, and an end to predatory vendor lock-in.”

Open sourcing is a very successful way to get an idea out and make that idea freely available.  Some great examples of successful  open source software on a global scale are Mozilla’s FireFox (check out their video below for a brief autobiography), WordPress and Wiki.  I’m sure you’re familiar with Wikipedia?  They use the wiki, originally thought up by Ward Cunningnham.  According to Wikipedia  itself, “wiki (Listeni/ˈwɪki/ wik-ee) is usually a web application which allows people to add, modify, or delete content in collaboration with others.”

So, still think this is overwhelming?  Think again…..

As a small start-up with BIG ideas, World Tree Circle needs a team of mellifluous, forward thinking people from many different skill sets.  Some of the jobs we know need filled are:

  • Programmerslearning_chinese_people
  • Web Designers
  • Marketers
  • Team Leaders
  • Problem Solvers
  • Travelers
  • Human Relations Reps

Some of you can answer more than one of these needs, others will specialize in just one.  We’d love to hear from you all.   Our horizons will expand as we come together.

If there is something you see we are missing, please don’t be afraid to let us know.
