The development work is being carried out by Andy Gibson (left), and Saul Albert, who runs the company The People Speak.
Andy is a co-founder of the Web 2.0 start up The School of Everything, and before developing Sociability worked at Skillset commissioning web sites. He blogs here.
Saul says about The People speak
The People Speak is a set of ideas, technologies and strategies we've developed for bringing people together to have conversations and discussions in an open-ended and fun way. We design events, architectures, systems and processes in which people are encouraged to express themselves, share ideas, flirt, and be as creative as they can.One possible model for the RSA work is the new media eXchange, which Andy says has similarities to the RSA prototype. The site says
It shouldn't be so hard to find great talent and outstanding projects - or for talented people to find opportunities to work and collaborate.
The nm-x is a network for bringing together people, projects, events and organisations to eXchange with each other.
