Powderworks.net has been a tech and personal community. Currently, the site is under a full reconstruction and will be relaunched as a self service micro community site geared to technology enthusiests. Previous site contained 3 sections:

  • Tech News and Blog - Collection of RSS feeds from over 40 different news sources updated hourly as well as how-to articles devoted to PC use, web design, robotics, and other technology themes.
  • Family News - This restricted area of the site was a personal blog for owner's family and friends.
  • Arcade - extensive collection of online flash games with competitive member score keeping, game of the week, and game tagging.

The new site will have the same but more robust toolset with the ability for self directed communities to be developed. Each community will have communication tools, their own project management system for collaboration and the ability to either advertise and recruit from other groups on the site or make their group private.
