A club that teaches long forgotten crafts, recipes, dialects to the younger generations, preserving them. Keeping culture alive, deepen relationships inter-generational and prevent the world from unified culture.
Thank you for these links. I really like what pixelcorps is doing. Maybe you are right that a less high profile http://meetup.com model instead of a maker fair/TEDx/Startupweekend model would be easier to set up and increase reach. However, recording of sessions needs to be incorporated so a repository is established. Looking forward to hearing your results from your primary market research during the next family reunion ;) Thanks a lot for your ideas.
Thanks Meena! You are totally right. The idea was actually first conceived as an offline concept, to maximize interactions between people. Nothing is better than a physical meeting. However, the advantages of online, reach and repository, are very appealing. I think you hit the sweet spot by organizing Vintage Club events such as the Maker Faire combining this with a digital platform. We could also use a licensing model in which users all over the world can set up a Vintage Club event using the Vintage Club brand. A bit like TEDx, Startup Weekend,...
I have not really thought through the user experience but I think it would be needed to have a new platform with digital capture capabilities (video, audio, with links to FB, Pinterest,...) that is super easy in use. It would also be great to have it on mobile to access or allow people who do not have a computer or smartphone be recorded by others (younger people).
