The Amazings - a social knowledge transfer venture

Having been inspired by Rachel Botsman's keynote presentation at Online Information conference I was delighted to learn about a new social venture that seems to pick up on so many of her key themes.  The Amazings is designed to help people at retirement age share, and capitalise on, their experiences.It's an example of the 'micro-enterprise' which Botsman believes will mark out a new social and economic revolution every bit as influential as the industrial revolution of old.  Not only does this enterprise encourage knowledge and skills transfer but it places a real value on the expertise and experiences of older members of society and encourages social interactions between generations.The Amazings has been receiving a great deal of positive press, as both parties to the experience gain real benefits.
