The restless energy of the World Wide Web continues to carve out new spaces and inspire new journals, tools and experiences. One quality they seem to have in common is the creation of novel communities with unique shapes and dimensions.
A few highly successful Internet communities like MySpace and Facebook have become daily accessories to the real world, offering platforms for self-expression with strong social overtones.
Others, like SecondLife, are rooted in a virtual world with a peculiar emergent life of their own.
World Knowledge Bank, created by Ann Racuya-Robbins with Blackrock Networks in Los Alamos, has its feet in the real world and its head in a kind of utopian idealism that the so-called real world has tended to ignore in the era of globalization. The bank calls itself “a virtual democratic country.”
The website, at https://www.wkbank.com/ had its grand opening Mar. 30 and is dedicated to a number of unusual propositions for this day and age.
For example, as Racuya-Robbins said in a recent interview, “We have way underestimated the value of human life in terms of its ability to contribute to the world.”
