I meet so many people by email.
Almost everyone has something to offer.
Almost everyone is looking for something.
Sometimes they tell me about specific opportunities like:
“I’m running a venue here in Boston that’s always looking for good folk artists.”
“We have good-paying gigs 4 nights a week, but our singer is moving. Know someone good?”
“I have a radio show in Sydney, so if you want to send me some music...”
Unfortunately, all of this is just in my email inbox.
I haven’t organized these opportunities.
And I can’t keep it all in my head.
I’ve been planning on making <a href="http://karmalist.com/">KarmaList</a> an open database of contacts.
But now I’m thinking I should also make it <strong>an organized list of who’s looking for what</strong>.
I’d hire someone to go back through my email archive, and update the database with who’s looking and who’s offering.
Visit URLs and <strong>validate everything</strong>, then post it on KarmaList, if they say OK.
Maybe I’ll make it invitation-only, so the website will just be verified high-quality listings.
I do all this for fun, not money, so it will always be completely free.
(No ads, either.)
But because I’m making this more for you than me, I might as well ask first:
Any wish-list for this kind of service?
