DIY.org is a new project by Zach Klein that is trying to create a safe place on the web to foster kids’ creativity. As a mother of two, and creativity being a huge part of my work life, I couldn’t be more excited.
Here’s how it works: Let your kid sign up and create an account where they can safely publish what they make. They can upload videos and pictures of their projects using the DIY website or iphone/iPod Touch app. Kids’ projects are online for everone to see, and parents can add stickers to show support. Parents also have their own control panel to follow their activity and also to make sure they’re not sharing anything that should be private.
Consider it a tool that lets kids collect everything they make as they grow up. I love this idea!
My partners Andrew, Isaiah and Daren are really excited for what’s coming up! Stay tuned.

And why would a kid need a blog? Is there really need to share everything be everyone. Making things, creating things, encourage – great. Put it all out?
