At The Nerdologist we think creative people should have access to amazing online resources that allows them to share and sell their work and earn revenue so they can be resourced to go and create more fantastic things.
In an effort to actually make a difference to the world we have built an amazing app that makes these things possible. One of the areas that we are really interested in is film. The reason for this is that film is a medium that allows amazing people to communicate with the world in a really engaging way. It is an excellent way of telling stories, sharing knowledge and inspiring people.
We realised that the current funding and distribution paradigms are not working as well as they could for film makers and by and large online opportunities are not being taken advantage of.
So we created www.fillim.com At Fillim We are determined to make a difference to creatives and producers in the film industry to ensure that the lions share of profits goes back to them allowing film makers to have the financial independence to create their next film! We have structured Fillim so that we do not limit other distribution sources for the films. This way film makers and producers can increase the exposure their films get, and Fillim works really hard to push films out to our rapidly growing networks of film obsessed viewers.

Speech by Brett Solomon from AccessNow.org to the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs – The Hague
December 9, 2011
I am the Executive Director of Access Now (https://www.accessnow.org). We are a global movement for digital freedom. Being in this room is somewhat of a dream come true, because we, and other civil society organizations who are also present here, have been talking about many of these issues for a number of years now, and to see it all played out here in this room, at such a high level, is a major step. Hilary Clinton and Eric Schmidt articulating so eloquently the importance of digital freedom is a powerful endorsement the importance of these issues. Now, it feels as though we can go forward together.
Fact: While we are migrating online, we are not moving into a civic commons—rather, into a series of shiny and digital private malls. The privatized internet and corporation-owned mobile communication networks are increasingly fundamental to our ability to express our opinion, to seek, receive and impart information, and serve as gateway to all other rights in the digital age.
Because the private sector, essentially, owns the net, produces the hardware, lays the cables, stores the data and manages the networks – and is the sphere that we go to exercise our rights – it is becoming the arbiter of our freedoms. Indeed, as the internet becomes the front line of human rights defense and enjoyment, the question becomes whether the corporate keymasters to that front line really care, and how can we make them care?

Reading Robert Scoble’s blog post on how launching a startup outside of the USA is much easier than it used to be, prompted me to think about our journey in the world of startups.

Despite the fact that my co-founder and I come from a technology and product development background of many years with many contacts in the industry, we found it extremely difficult to open doors and create opportunities at a local level.
