SAN FRANCISCO, Web 2.0 Expo, April 16 /CNW/ -- Cambrian House, an online
crowdsourcing community that enables members to collaborate around ideas and
business, today proclaimed themselves the first Web 2.0 company to be owned in
part by its members. Starting today all existing members, and anyone who joins
Cambrian House from this point forward, will earn a share in the business. The
more engaged they are as members, the more shares they will earn over time.
No other Web 2.0 company relying on user-generated content has
financially rewarded their community for their time and efforts to this level.
"I'm really excited to be the first Web 2.0 community where all members
share in the community's growth," said Michael J. Sikorsky, Cambrian House
CEO. "We value the time and effort members dedicate to Cambrian House and
think they should feel like it's their business too."
Cambrian House measures participation with a Glory Point system. Points
are awarded for a variety of actions such as editing a member profile,
commenting on a member's business idea, completing a task, or submitting code.
Shares are awarded based on participation and can be cashed out at any time.
