I've always been wondering how can i harness the power of community within an area, which for my case, my university's campus. You can often see how community offers feedback and helds activity via the student association so i suppose that a central spot where people can gather together doing things is a fine prospect for profit.
What i'm trying to imply here is that I want to make a community driven website, where People can talk about things happening in various spots of the university's compounds, doing tradings , and holding activities together.
My university had wifi all over its compound so i guess mobility would not be a problem to get connected. I can log on to this website and do so many things. I can see what's happening in the sports complex via live feedback, I can see the events ongoing in the main hall and perhaps even a live feed of it. If i need a specific book i can go to the trading area(sort of e-commerce way) and find if i can get what i need there. People can also update their campus life on social networks, upload photos of things happening in the campus and tag them to specific buildings, and chat in online lounges and meeting new people.If such idea of Information sharing in a small connected area could receive a good feedback then maybe advertising can be brought in to be monetized.
This idea is hardly a matured one. I wanna hear more suggestion from you guys if this idea might or might not work.
