knoxville.orgOur very own Joshua Lane was just featured on today… Upon checking out the site, I discovered the featured redesign of I found this site to be totally beautiful and vibrant and it made me want to get on a plane right this second and go to Knoxville. Then I thought… I wonder what looks like (YUKKKK). I don’t want to get too rambly, but I was thinking about the brainstorming stuff that happened at Junto last night and I suppose the putting Philly on the map and giving back to the community resonated with me the most. It got me thinking that with our collective creative skills, perhaps we could come up with an amazing Philly site that wasn’t about just visiting, but making this your new home with real info about jobs / neighborhoods / community / etc.

The other thing that occurred to me, based on last night’s Junto, was the idea of reaching out to students, and making them more aware of all of the opportunities that are available to them right here, right now. Additionally, it’s only natural to want to move to a new city when you are young (and whenever), so how can Philly appear to be an attractive city to draw creative personalities from all over the country (and the world).

Also, I don’t want to step on any toes… I know there are some great sites out there now like Uwishunu – but maybe this is more focused on the community we are creating?

Are you getting what I am putting out there? Let’s discuss.
