Our awaremonk journey till here and the road ahead for us


Its commendable how we have managed to create a platform which is indigenous and to have meaningful discussions without acrimony and personal attacks.


Yet, there is so much more which can make our discussions more valuable to each one of us to learn more together.


More reference material and citings from other weblinks

More sharing which allows for a wider base of views to emerge on any issue and this could include people who are directly involved with the issue at hand

Arguments which move back and forth at a rapid pace allowing both sides to both express their own view and understand the other side too ( are we going to enough depth today ? )

The ability to hone deep down into an issue rather than deviate to generalities as it happens in TV debates ( are we really able to achieve this today ? )

Most platforms have developed through endorsement and presence of celebrities, but while expert content shall uplift our understanding, would celebrities build the culture or just bring more eyeballs


Since we are surrounded by large tech platforms on all sides, twitter, quora, linkedin, how should we evolve to carve an identity for ourself and yet make it an enjoyable experience for each one of us ?

Being an entrepreneur myself I think following are the things that awaremonk has done right:

1.) brilliant idea, coming exactly when it's needed.

2) patiently executed, I see all the additions are features that are needed.

3.) build product before you build hype. Very few products are there which I have come to know of from people rather than your story.

Things they can do better:

1.) more focus mobile experience

2.) onboarding some celebrities and doing good pr around it.

I think the focus should be more on communities. Something which I didn't find to be that great on either Facebook, Quora or Twitter was the engagement for the Tibetan cause. The panel discussion and AMA with Thomas Mann were revelatory. AwareMonk should probably focus on carving a niche for themselves, rather than trying to be an alternative to big platforms. The Tibet community is a brilliant example of such a thing, though it seems to have died out a bit.

I see awaremonk as becoming a place of information and knowledge sharing and not just debates. Have found some interesting people here, wish there was a way to message someone directly.

What I love about awaremonk is no cyber bullying for any user.

I've been an active writer here for some time now. Even though I absolutely love the platform and the content, I realized I come here only when I have something 'serious' to talk about- the frequency of that isn't great. I feel the platform could do with a witty twist to a lot of issues, make it more readable and shareable.

Cant agree more, a wide canvas of issues which mimics reader interest. ultimately, we all yearn for the joy of sharing saucy stories.


Rajesh Verma , Would like to explore Awaremonk before writin Oct, 31 2016


Won't that dilute the seriousness of debates?


Rohit pande , Have a view on many things but happy to thras Oct, 31 2016


I had to disagree here, they need to provide a way to change the choice. Its about embracing life in totality. In fact, like in Indian politics, its earthy examples linked to everyday life + wit which make for the most forceful impact on people and opinion. In the end, its about shaping opinions.

On a serious note I like the way community has shaped up in last few months. I also wrote to the founders about how they should make awaremonk more connected with other platforms like WhatsApp etc.

IMO awaremonk is on the right track. It has various topics floating many ideas and thoughts coming up. I like the way they have defined categories.

Going forward such discussions should diversify in other fields to get more and more new brains and thoughts.

I used to see panel discussions but now there are AMAs I prefer panel over AMAs

Really? Doesn't the AMA format feel more interactive and engaging? I loved going through the AMA of Kashyap Deorah, felt more concise and enlightening. Panels get a little diluted and haphazard.

Wondering how about a debate by pitting 2 opposing viewpoint together in an unique digital debate format with observers pitching in from the sides after the initial duel.


Vikram Gupta , Exploring, learning, believing Oct, 31 2016


Won't that get too complicated though? Seems like a great idea, but proper implementation to guide the user is vital. Even right now everything is so "learn it yourself". It needs to be more easy so that it doesn't intimidate readers.


Rohit pande , Have a view on many things but happy to thras Oct, 31 2016


True, from a larger perspective beyond one's learning, it would be personally exciting to be part of a platform which influences ( in as small a way as possible ) the democratic discourse ( especially given the erosion in media values and self-interest ).


Also, a debate would sometimes help bring out the arguments with a sense of urgency. I am personally apalled by the poor quality of our public debates. We allow people to get away with 0 accountability and all the way they can obfuscate their true responsibilities as custodians of our trust and tax money.

I am passive reader of awaremonk. To me awaremonk is like a place where we go after our day's job to see interesting thoughts. What I miss is more to and fro conversation as you mentioned Rohit pande.


Sameer Raza , Learning. Student forever. Oct, 31 2016


I like awaremonk as it is refreshing to visit this space. Too much noise on any other social platform has killed the joy of conversations. I like 4 genuine comments here over 40 useless comments anywhere else. My suggestion would be to users to increase the no. of discussions.
