Ever think “I’m bored and want to go do something in exciting, cool, adventurous, crazy or funky! But WHAT SHOULD I DOOOO?” Don’t worry you’re not alone. This phrase, sentiment, or whatever you want to call it has plagued mankind for as long as we know, but let’s be modest and say since the popular rise of the Internet.
Well meet Offline, a platform that inspires people to LIVE, EXPLORE, KILL THEIR BOREDOM. Offline is a simple and fun way for adventurers, world travelers, and thrill seekers to share and discover cool, crazy, inspiring activities and adventures shared through pictures and videos. Adventurers get a platform to showcase their awesomeness and the rest of the world gets inspired to grow their bucket list.
Offline members will be able to record their activities along with attached images and videos on their personal page e.g. http://yourname.isoffline.com
Offline also does something very unique, it captures the length of time spent on the activity, the dates, location and other meta data.
What makes Offline appealing is how niche it is – we eliminated all of the noise you find on other social sharing platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. With Offline, you know exactly what you are getting — cool, memorable, fun, crazy and inspiring activities (the type that makes you say “shit, I want to do that”) people around the world are doing when they unplug, nothing else.
As proof of this, every post on Offline has the same sentence structure: Gone offline to [enter activity] for [enter duration]. e.g. Gone offline to scuba dive with whale sharks for 2 hours. Offline then curates posts based on their trending popularity and other factors.
In the near future Offline members will be able to give Offline a time frame e.g. 2 hours and receive recommendations of activities to do based on their personal history and popular activities done by other members within a 2-hour period.
The goal of Offline is simple, make it easier for people to experience and enjoy the world around them.
To build Offline I partnered with John Pavlick with whom I also cofounded Miigle.
