|Description||A universe of online communities|
Cubits.org is a collection of communities, called cubits.
Each cubit is a self-contained mini-website devoted to the specific interests of that community. Cubits.org was created by Dave Whitinger, the founder of LinuxToday.com and DavesGarden.com.
You have probably visited websites devoted to specific subjects. They usually contain forums, a member list, informational databases, file uploads, and the like. Each of these websites were painstakingly created by the website’s owner, who devoted hundreds of hours to putting it all together.
There are countless people who have a great interest in some particular subject, and would love to make a community website about it, but they don’t have the expertise to create it.
Thus, Cubits.org was created to let anybody start their own feature-rich community website. With no technical knowledge required, a person can come to Cubits.org and within minutes have their own community website ready for their members.
In the first 6 weeks after launch, there were already over 500 communities created with more than 100,000 posts in the various forums.
