We have a number of projects being discussed. Members interested in the following should contact Vic Jasin
city planning model software
audio digitizing (audiobooks)
help on coding for a social enterprise applicaton. Project (only those who can commit to a sizeable block of coding)
All the above are intended to have SENVI community volunteer inputs and revenues will be SENVI trust capital (which all collective members own). Those are suggestions.
Any member with a project or existing commercial enterprise which can use help should contact Vic Jasin. We will get the expertise you need within SENVI and voluntarily (pro bono) whenever possible. I will find those interested in doing what is needed.
Those who are free to provide a service please let me know. Those who commercially offer services, let me know. Those NEEDING services let me know. Those who have read this message, let me know.

I am up to 25 members called/contacted by phone. I hope to do 2/day but at least one. The average call duration so far is around 90+ minutes with some over 3hrs. Good talks and it seems most folks are ready for that kind of connection.
You can't help but find ideas just meeting people of the caliber and talent we have here. If ALL of you make it your SENVI goal to at least to ahve talked by phone with EVERY member once/year that would be a good ideal/goal. I realise that may not be realistic for some, but I'm putting a goal out there for others to consider.
The public knowledge trust in SENVI is special and will become more special over time in terms of it's relevance and significance in actions that bring positive change into our future. This is already an elite group. Don't oversell SENVI. This is quality and talent with the right attitude and the right intentions to make them SENVI community.
You are an elite group my friends and I'm proud to say I know you all and I can only feel stronger and better about that as I speak with you all. Personally this group seems like the right combination at the right time. My plan is to create SENVI as a mark of distinction in some humble regard but authoritatively professional on the outside and casual and small town/family on the inside. That's the goal "I" have.
I would love to hear all others ideas, projects and ambitions. We will find a way to improve or activate your ideas to their successful place. I plan to write about my calls. There are many modest folks in this group who others would benefit from simply knowing them and their story. Everyone here is SPECIAL in some way as per my reason for inviting you. This is a post and not email because I understand how too much data turns to junk and is a wast of time if not used and presented the way best suited for it's population. Good folks, good ideas and good intentions and good actions. Good place to be.

Giving all members administrative security clearance does not mean you are expected to start taking on admin responsibilities. You have FULL access to all I do, and whether you use it, or have others produce things on your behalf, is a personal choice. If you have content you want on and want help doing it then ask me and I'll help myself or find someone who will.
Please, don't let you not having time or a comfort for using site features keep you from asking for help and simply asking questions on how to use what we have as it pertains to your personal circumstances.
I record my outgoing calls by default as well as all Skype calls. The purpose of recording calls is for historical reasons, reference (now you can do searches on audio), and even fully accessible to members to listen to. Consider if you would like to have conversations of yours, or others available to other members to listen to. Call content is the property of the members recorded and I will go on record here as saying I waive all my rights to any recordings with my voice and/or image on it in favour of the other party on the audio/video if and when such things are done.
I do NOT speak on behalf of SENVI. No ONE does, but we ALL do.
I will refrain from making statements in the future about SENVI except to report facts, actions and/or events. Opinion, if and when expressed, is my own.
I expect it to take about 90 days (2 more months) to get up to speed on optimally using features, and get everyone plugged into a support group of interested community volunteers. I (Vic Jasin) will do that.
Wait for your call if you don't have a clue on how to proceed OR better yet YOU call me if you need to, and without hesitation. I welcome all calls and not as a duty, but as a joy and pleasure of meeting you folks and helping solve your problems in trying to solve others problems.
If you could have your own DREAM TEAM to work with, who would they be (anyone living on this planet at this time), for what purpose and when? Let me know and I'll help you get them in SENVI as your center for collaboration of your DREAM TEAM. I can't guarantee we will get everyone you suggest, but I will surely try my best.
519 657-4286 (any time after 3pm and no later than 3am, GMT-5hrs a.k.a. EST)

This blog is now restricted to members only. Meaning non-members can't see or read it. Limited members can't access it either, only full membership.
The way the site membership works now. Any member can send out an invitation. If that invition hyperlink is used the member will automatically have limited membership. Until I meet and greet and then I up to full membership. That way I have a chance to meet everyone who joins.
Those who appear by chance and request membership need to give introduction info and links and then we decided whether to grant full membership. When they apply I return an inviatation so they can access the site as limited members. Until I know them or someone in the community know them, they won't be allowed full membership.
My apologies, but I'm not going to look up and google someone's email that shows up per chance they are celebrities. We have celebrities here. OUR celebrities are Randal Koene, Aubrey De Grey and Bill Scheurer. Everyone else is a "member". No disrespect intended. I hope to help all get to know one another and feel good about the strength of membership we have here. We can do much with what we have. In time.

New features installed:
Job posting board
Expert search database
Cell phone platform
Clicky tracking, security and audit
Avatar site pal which has a LOT of features and can become a very useful tool for "how to" type help, tours and specialty uses not yet thought of.
The arcade feature I originally had had bugs and the company withdrew its support so it's history and won't be coming back.
As we explore the features and start using them we will better understand the full integrated power of this site. It is a very good example of innovation as in low cost progressive new features and technology. We are getting a 90day free trial for search optimization. I won't be going beyond the 90 days as I am not interested in promoting this site any more. It will be built by word of mouth and community members inviting those they want as part of their community.
This is not a place for meetings and bureaucracy more like a resource lounge, and I'm and expert in lounging I assure you.
Anyone who is a member has access to all the features that are not admin features. Admin features are: configuring options, changing site lay out, doing database maintenance, security and access, content admin. As members you have access to everything else I believe. If anyone has ideas on anything else useful please drop a note using the contact us tab on your screen.
