Mapitol is a huge web directory. Not the same as the ones that we can find today. Imagine browsing a tree with tens of millions of subjects and find the best pages on each subject listed by relevance. You will be able to explore the Internet content just the way you do browsing the folders in your computer. Imagine also that for each subject you will find a community of people interested in the same subject. A community where you can participate, exchanging information and experiences. Where users colaborate in categorizing the subjects and decide wich are the best pages for each subject. This way, the relevance of the results are determined by the community, not by the number of occurrences of one keyword you entered in a search engine nor on the ability of sites to get high ranks on those search engines.
Mapitol is working on the idea of organizing all the information on the Internet. So, it’s an enormous task, completely impossible to accomplish. We know that, that’s why we are so proud on what we are doing. We are very proud that we are building something that will benefit millions of Internet users that every day struggle to find what they are looking for. Furthermore, we are proud that we will be able to deliver knowledge at a global range, knowing that knowledge is a pillar to the development of mankind. Yes, we put very high stakes in our work. That’s the way we know to exceed ourselves every day.
Thanks for your interest in Mapitol. We have decided to create this blog as a way to let friends and curious people in general know a little bit more about Mapitol. We want to provide a glimpse on what is going on in the project.
We will not uncover much on what we are doing. The launching of the site will be in early 2010 and before that we don’t want to create a lot of hype. We will prefer to be a good surprise for all the Internet users rather than have small disapointments due to uncontrolled expectations.
We also want to give people a way to comment on what they already know about Mapitol. As you will notice, Mapitol is all about building a large community of Internet users and your feedback is crucial to the quality of our work. Your input is very important to us. Please feel free to leave your comments, suggestions and criticism.
