This is a project which will require a great amount of effort and passion, and I need help doing it. The project is a facebook like page, in combination with an igoogle type interface. Users would sign up for the service, and create their portfolios. Users should be able to customize their portfolios with web apps (igoogle homepage style.), upload pictures, and allow for comments. It also should contain a purchase service like paypal, and allow Users to use that service to sell their merchandise. Basically, it would be like amazon, google and facebook had a baby.
The Idea is that Users would be able to set up a business, or simply a portfolio website without going through the hastle of creating and finding a host for themselves.
To put things a little more in perspective, imagine an artist, this artist would open up their homepage and have an igoogle looking interface customized to his or her needs. by looking up "artists" on a search engine, people would see the artists page and would see a profile of the artist, information, and works. they could purchase any of those works without ever leaving the page, or send an email or message regarding the work, or leave a comment on an inpiring work. Thats the basic idea, let me know.
