    Question Zurker.com?

    Started by the twins that "made" FB. Dont know much about it aside from that.

    Zurker is the only social network owned by its members. Not only do you own your content on Zurker, you own part of the actual social network itself! Members get vShares (a stake of ownership, or equity) in Zurker for referring their friends (without which a social network doesn't function anyway).

    As more and more people use Zurker and the project grows, your stake in Zurker becomes more valuable.

    Giving equity to members may sound like a radical idea, but it's only fair. Members should stand to benefit from what they bring to life - a social network is nothing without its members.

    I dunno. Whats the deal with this shit?

    I made an account, just because I want (potential) free money. There is a link if you want in. Good day

    You've received an invitation to join Zurker from Lt. Surge.

    Is this the handle you chose? Lt. Surge?

    Wouldn't you have to start off as Private Thrust first, and work your way up?

    Hey-o! *drum crash*

    Personally, I prefer to think of Hannah as some sort of low-ranking Admiral. With fancy hat and all.

    Like any other business, Zurker's objective is to serve its shareholders - but if the shareholders are the same members who use the site on a daily basis, evil business decisions are less likely to stick. Zurker is democratic. Zurker is the 99%.
    Wow.

    Pokemon was great, as a child I never caught all the references in the names, it is just great.

    Interesting concept. I think the execution is poor with that site. It's pretty crappy and personally, not worth my time to invest in to get vshares. However, I think such a model could work.

    Yes. Do you not know the movie and scene? Forget it.

    I thought about this. I also thought of the two brothers back in Pennsylvania who killed their parents. A couple of days beforehand one of them got Berzerker tattooed on his forehead and the other got Sieg Heil. Pretty nice guys.

    Yes, that was a direct quote from that scene, right after he sings it.

    There was a point where I could recite the entire movie from memory I had watched it so often.
