From: "Matthew Koll" <mkoll at wondir.org>
The Wondir Foundation is looking for beta testers.
wondir.org is a place where you can get instant answers to your questions. The Question Ticker can put your question in front of thousands of eyeballs instantly. And you can see what other people are asking right now. Ask or answer any question by instant messaging (or by posting or by email).
Get help with homework, life problems, or anything else on your mind. Help others with their questions. Share your knowledge, experience and interests. Or just watch the stream of questions!
Wondir is a free site run by a nonprofit organization. Our goal is to have a big open place where people can ask and answer questions easily. You dont even have to register to use it. Although, if you decide to register, you might receive some tips ($$$) from people you help
We are just starting beta testing, so please come to www.wondir.org and check it out. You can leave the ticker up while youre doing other stuff. Ask questions if you have them. Answer questions if you are so inclined. And tell us what you think.
The power of Wondir grows with the number of people using it. So please check back often, and tell your friends about it.
Special note for ASIST members: While the focus of our testing at the moment is on the open, real-time interaction built around a live stream of questions, credentialed authorities and service organizations will be a very important part of the service. So, I hope you do chose to become a registered member of Wondir. If and when you do, if you would like to highlight your affiliation with ASIST, enter: 5LrIJMXY, as your organization code. [Note: that is a capitol i after the r. RH]
Thanks, and hope to see you on Wondir. And please feel free to contact me with any questions or comments.
Chairman, The Wondir Foundation
