Hello my name is Rain. Yes, like the weather.
I am building The Project.
It will be an online community backed by social psychology research helping people build, make, accomplish, and change the world.

NO I DON’T HAVE PICTURES BECAUSE I ATE IT ALREADY

I’m so bored with those previous sentences that I fell asleep.
But if you’re still awake, check out the video after the jump.

what is the project going to be about?
there are some things that i would like to do just for fun or think would be or might be fun to do but haven’t really found the time or resources or motivation to follow through and do them and i’m thinking if i commit to it online with a community of other people who are committing to their own projects for the next year
and we get together once a quarter or a month or a week or something to present what we’ve done so far and what we’re going to do over the next quarter or month or week and sometimes the presentations are as simple as, i’ve done nothing, but this is why and this is how i’m going to make things happen for the next deadline which is different than what i’ve been doing because x y z or i need help with x y z problems and what are your thoughts or look how awesome i am cause i’ve finished and now i’d like to work on this new thing unless you can think of something else related to this or that or the other
