Whichever is better for a community website - Drupal or Joomla, either of those two, and surely you could learn a new CMS if need be. I'm a 'puter
idiot and I believe I can do anything so anything must be possible! lol
So here's what's come to me - it's for the whole internetworked economy, from graphic design to tech writers, to artists, anything you need, both to
hire and to trade skills or to work together collaboratively for the realization of a shared goal like a kickstarter startup, but it could be
anything, a play, a movie, book, work of music, internet compaign, viral video, Google and Yahoo advertising ideas, anything, anything anyone can
imagine, often even with money and financial rewards involved, maybe even more often than not, so that people's time and energy may be valued, and the
unemployed or underemployed netheads given a way to make a living without having to work for "the man" or to acquiesce to being a have not, relative
to the haves, when all the while set before us is a whole ocean of opportunity, largely untapped, as a social networking medium.
That in and of itself is an astounding IDEA! Glad you thought of it and that I'm running with it and letting my imagination go wild with it as a
possibility, and as a new economic channel of mutual prosperity and empowerment.
I even have an idea for a name - checked it on Google and looks like it's available - will PM you. Later on, with the startup I have in mind, I could
fund it (give me about a year, total).
It's piecework, where you just do your part for the project and then it's onto something else. And some people are so efficient that they could manage
multiple projects simultaneously while delivering on promises (will have to come up with a name for the promise that isn't promise because that's the
kind of word that invites the possibility of a promise made but broken).
I see it as a new type of grassroots economic movement AND co-creative endeavor in the very best spirit of the emerging Web culture.
P.S. That's just the cultural statement not the name idea I had in mind.
