Announcing the official launch of MapYourVote.com
Today we announce the official launch of MapYourVote! As some of you know, it’s been a long road here. The idea itself is almost four years old and I remember the origin very well. I was having a causal conversation with my father over the phone when he mentioned, “it would be cool to see how people actually felt across the globe”. I paused ... and said yes, it would. Like all great ideas, it evolved, and four years later, MapYourVote has become the world’s first Social Voteworking web site.
We’ve come a long way since the origin of free speech and free thought. We’ve come a long way since the forums of Ancient Greece, the birth place of democracy. But even in today’s advance data driven society, where information flows with incredible speed, there is something missing. The forums have not been updated, and real opinions drown in the vast oceans of data.
MapYourVote can end this. MapYourVote can be the new forum, allowing ideas and true opinions to flow with unprecedented effectiveness. MapYourVote can help us answer the questions, both big and small.
So my father and I have a favor to ask. Help us continue to evolve MapYourVote. Help us spread the word that a new forum is in town. Tell your friends, your family, their friends and their family. Share polls on Facebook, Digg, Google Plus and Twitter. Help us grow MapYourVote into the site that it can be. After all, It’s Your Vote. Your World.
