Socialprise: The Organizational Design Revolution

Green Chameleon

On this day of celebration of the United States revolution, I was celebrating the potential of another great revolution.

MirandaNet has a clearly articulated purpose.

Online Social Networking

Design Consistency - How can we add capabilities while preserving our site’s overall look, feel and philosophy? Facebook changed the look and feel of the pages used by businesses, organizations and celebrities to make them more similar to personal profiles.
