The Social Safety Network
We-Guild is a way for self-employed people to get sick-pay. A reputation and trust based network of mutual support where everyone you trust chips in when you need it in exchange of you chipping in for them when they need it.
Watch the video if you haven't already and check the rest of the info on this site. And remember that...
It's a project in the making and it needs your support to secure investment!
So if you want to help make it happen do all that social media stuff (liking, following and especially sharing it!) and join the mailing list to participate in things. Or if you can think of other ways to support us we'd love to hear from you.
Let's make We-Guild happen!
How it works
1) Connect with people
(that you know and trust)
2) Accept or reject help requests from them
3) See how your network evolves with your Colour map
4) If you're ill, you can ask for help
5) Your friends help you
6) And you say thanks!
Quickly and intuitively assess your help exchanges. Hover over users for details.
Blue: you've helped them more than they've helped you.
Green: they've helped you more than you've helped them.
Turquoise: you've helped each other more or less equally.
And ball size denotes total exchanged.
"Unless men are maddened in the battlefield, they 'cannot stand it' to hear appeals for help, and not to respond to them. The hero goes; and what the hero does, all feel that they ought to have done as well.
We have made an interactive spreadsheet for you to see how
We-Guild's calculations would work for the example network in the picture below.
Download the spreadsheet and play around with different help requests from Doug, Michael and Marie (and everybody's caps) so you can see the calculation magic happens!
