How is CM governed and owned?

The Citizens Media® (CM) is an incorporated business based in Whistler, BC (Canada). It's intention is to act as a bridge for moving finance to a sustainable economy that brings equal opportunity to all. To do this:

  1. Development is afforded through Capped Investments. This means that – regardless of when or how much they invested – there's a limit to how much profit they can make. 
  2. So you know we're being accountable, all revenues will be posted online. 
  3. Any profits made will be managed by the I3 Investment Cooperative: a BC based coop founded to handle investments into projects promoted through CM's platform. Anyone investing $100 or more of Kudos has the right to be a member of the coop.
  4. CM will be relaunched and made open source - probably in Python, 2017.

How does the platform work?

CM's platform is a mobile friendly content management tool that offers step-by-step process, modular build and automated email alerts minimize skills, experience and time needed to use or manage a site. Site messaging and social sharing tools make it easy to interact.

  • Information about communities and their projects are shared through microsites and blog posts, which can include a video, audio track, picture gallery, forum and more.
  • Features include multi-user editing, history tracking and language translations.
  • Networks can be created by linking up websites, that will then be included in the sites Central Search.

Returns for contributors and investments into community based projects are generated through Kudos: 140 character messages of support that appear against content as it's viewed from a site.

All content posted on CM websites is owned by the person who made it. To learn more, signup to the sandbox and/or email services@the-cm.com.

Note: CM's platform is presently coded in Perl. As we get things going, CM will be relaunched and made open source - probably in Python.

What's makes CM unique?

CM invites people to fund meaningful initiatives that empower new, locally-based economic opportunity at the same time. Unlike other crowdfunding platforms – rather than receiving gifts in return for their contributions – they receive a currency that's free from centralised governance and can be reinvested in local, globally connected economies time and time again.

Why is this important?

Keeping money within a community has been shown to have four times the economic impact than drifting in and out. The Multiplier Effect

How does CM protect it's values and goals?

  • Use local resources
  • Produce durable, recyclable product
  • Employ local people
  • Not produce toxic emissions
  • Help local business to increase their market share
