We've accomplished a lot with very few resources at CommonTimes - but we need to do more. So, right now we're thinking a lot about what we want to be when we grow up.
It's easy to get caught up in feature wars in terms of what our numerous and well-funded competition is doing, but lately, I've tried to isolate myself and think of the big picture. What is the problem we're trying to solve for our readers? What values do we have?
With that in mind, we're thinking about the world, media, community and our readers.
I came across Craig's manifesto on community. It's short and simple - but makes some good points.
I will definitely have more thoughts for you soon.
