We were inspired by Facebook's inability to support nonlinear discussions or ideas, and thus decided to build a symposium forum based on nonlinearity. In order to increase creativity and promote the growth of expressive thought, we tried to eliminate the restraining one dimensional nature of discussion on Facebook and other thread based forums. Instead, we implemented a branching, webbed design, in which each post was directly linked to related posts. In our design, instead of a conversation limited to one direction, one is free to create complex, dynamic conversations and mind maps that unleash the true power of networks and the human mind. We target the intellectual, the creative person, the programmer, and anyone with a passion to explores the thoughts of others. Thus, our creation, titled Symposium.

We aim to reinvent how information is presented in the modern online landscape.
