ps. Check out Clay Shirky - Institutions vs. collaboration.
The Fold are the individual divisions (or concepts) that make up 8fold.
The Avengers have Nick Fury. Charlie's Angels have Charlie. James Bond had Q (and M).
The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen had M; of course, he turned out to be Moriarty who was a sociopathic villain…scratch that last.
8fold.link is the glue binding the others together. As an application it's where users go to update the others and communicate with one another and reflect on themselves.
When it comes to software, and the social aspect of that software, we know many of you are not looking to win, or compete in, a popularity contest. As such, our software tends to favor and inspire close connection and empowering you to control the access others have to see your communications and broadcasts, even search engines. Further, our defaults tend to favor being closed initially while allowing you to open up more and more.
8fold.media satisfies the desire for practitioners looking to create multimedia content. Movies, books, podcasts, you name it.
Media is the curator of Folded, the 8fold newsletter, released only when it is deemed appopriate and only to those who explicitly sign up for it.
unFolded is the 8fold magazine (you might call it a blog, we call it a magazine). Articles are released as they are accepted from practitioners.
inCreased is the 8fold podcast, which is still being marinated on.
8fold Media is also capable of helping practitioners publish books they write, should they choose. (Currently only available to 8fold practtioners.)
8fold.dev is for software-related products and services.
Not really a wordy bunch.
8fold.pro is where it all started. It is the hub of 8fold and practitioners offering professional services to others that don't quite fit in the others.
