Wizdem

Why Wizdem

Wizdem is a social platform by community builders for community builders.

We are obsessed with building an ever-growing ecosystem where anybody can find their own tribes. We believe in the power of communities to change the world and make a positive impact, and that’s why we help our users and their communities to engage with causes they love.

What about our vision of the future and our responsibility to it!

We are unrepentant optimists. But we acknowledge there are tons of challenges we face. One that is really important for us is the role of social platforms in the IRL communities.

We work hard to ensure wizdem is a positive actor for the participative democracies, and not something hindering them.

We believe that as long as we pursue human-centric communities we will be able to protect Wizdem and our users from bad practices and vices we’ve seen grow in other platforms. Of course, this doesn’t mean we won’t err. We will: but we are committed to correct our shortcomings and decide always guided by our values:

1

“Do not think or act dishonesty and never harbor sinister designs”

-Musashi Miyamoto

We always expect the best from our peers and from the world. We also make a daily effort to be worthy of trust: we say what we think and we do what we say.

2

“Friendship is unnecessary, like philosophy, like art... It has no survival value; rather it is one of those things that give value to survival”

-C.S. Lewis

Communities are not a place to do networking, but to build relationships. We seek for the fulfillment of our peers, users and clients, and we build a space to gather around based on common interests and shared pursue of good.

3

“Justice is the same as rectitude, for it is a habit which rectifies the deed and the will”

-Thomas Aquinas

We recognize we are all different and we cherish that diversity, that’s why we thrive to celebrate the different and give person one what they deserve, accordingly to their nature (dignity) or a stablished agreement.

4

“Be at war with your vices, at peace with your neighbors, and let every new year find you a better man”

--Benjamin Franklin

We are rational beings and we can self-regulate and self-discipline to make good choices on our day to day. We build to nurture the freedom of our users, not to regulate them. (But we have zero tolerance against those who violate our community guidelines or make a real damage to.

5

“It is a rough road that leads to the heights of greatness”

-Seneca

We do good things and we do them good, even when we do not feel confident, or we think we lack capabilities. We know that transforming the world requires bravery and a whit of idealism.

6

“Everything looks nonsensical before it works”

-Burt Rutan

We are able to know the reality and to make adequate judgments about it. If we do not know something we can propose an hypothesis, but if we discover out hypothesis is false, we move on fast and purposefully.
