New Jack Mountain Bushcraft Network

We’re launching a new online social network for the Jack Mountain Bushcraft School community at:

I’ve heard from a bunch of people who were part of our ning network who missed it, and personally I’ve missed the community and the forums. I didn’t want to do the same thing again, though, and I’ve got a few issues with some of the other online networking sites, so we decided to do it ourselves this time.  This provides three distinct benefits:

  1. Control.  We’ll be able to set it up to play nice with other social networking sites.
  2. No surprises.  After putting a lot of time into the Ning network, they decided to pull the rug out from under us (and their other users) and completely switch their model.
  3. Privacy.  We’re not selling your information to marketers.  You won’t have to update your privacy settings on a weekly basis.

As we’re still learning how to use the software, there will be some growing pains.  But right now we’ve got a functioning forum, with other additions to come.

Typos, Etc.
Anything that appears to be an error in spelling or grammar is actually the author’s clever use of the vernacular, and as such is not an error, but rather a carefully placed literary device demonstrating prodigious artistic prowess.
