Portals for Beginners

In a private research activity I implement and evaluate closed community portals and private social networks
It is avery interesting experience how a group of people in the age between 20 and 70 years learns how to exploit cooperative technologies. Small hosted portals may be the solution to the ever increasing exposure of people private life through systems like Facebook or Google+. Private Portals can provide a similiar and much better cooperation environment for cost as low as 2 $ / month for a group of 50 people. 

The Guitar Society runs a conventional Web Site BB Gitarre hosted by Google Apps and a Wordpress Blog Boeblingen Gitarre Blog to communicate with the public. The Guitar Society Private Portal is for members only and provides typical functions e.g. document, sheet music and recordings archive, community calendar, eMail and SMS distribution, White Board, task tracking, blog, etc. as well as the typical social network functions.
