I’d like to wish everyone a really happy midwinter festive season (if you live in the northern hemisphere), and a great new year, from our new home in Lisbon.
Three weeks of frantic de-cluttering, house selling, trip organising and bureaucratic dealings formed the backdrop to our cross Europe road-trip to Portugal – where we are building the latest iteration of OurNet.news – the worldwide virtual village.
We are so excited to be here, and we are taking a short break before starting our new life. We are looking forward to finding somewhere great to live and to creating a vibrant work-space where Ournet can be born anew.
There is a huge amount of support here for start-up companies. and the Portuguese seem unfailingly friendly and helpful.
In the new year we shall start interviewing for web developers to transform the vision of the Virtual Village into a real live platform that can contribute to creating a new way of organising and liberating social interaction.
We know we have a gem of an idea here, and are completely committed to having OurNet as a beacon of a brave and inclusive new world.
