Project Description:
1. Profile - This is where you list and rate your skills, skill attributes ( Martial Arts is my skill. Strengh, Flexibility etc... are attributes). You can choose to display your peer rated score or your self rated score. Your videos, blogs, any relevant information that deals with skills are shown on your profile. After you are peer rated five times, you will receive an anonymous peer rating and a certain number of skill points. There is a beginner, proficient, and expert league. The higher the league of the person who rates you, the more skill points you receive. Which league you belong to depends on your peer rating and number of skill points.

2. Skill Search - Search for Skills based on different parameters: friends, teams, school, area code, state, country, gender, age, peer rated score, self rated score, league.

3. Teams - Create teams here so you can grow together. Teams can be a basketball team or a start up team.

4. Academy - Buy/Trade/Sell Skills here. Add "Academy Tabs". Say you have established reputation on this site by having very good ratings by people with very good ratings so you are an "expert". You can begin to sell your skills without any extra credentials.

5. Homefeed - This is the real gold, where we make money off of narcissism. Facebook's homefeed shows off what people have done, but this will show off what people can do. We believe that who you are is what you do. And there currently exists no way to low-key show off your skills.

6. Competition - Bet Skill Points against each other.

The revenue model is very intuitive. You and your brother mentioned selling ads based on context and this is an example of that. You search pole-dancing as a skill and businesses who sell poles will advertise. If you search skateboarding, skateboarding companies will want to advertise in that niche.

Additional Project Description:
11/28/2013 at 8:36 IST
An online skill library where users show off their skills and rate each other's skills. This website is ONLY for those who believe in their own potential and want to grow. There are six functions, but these functions are specifically designed to be seamlessly tied with each other. Like your body. You have different functions but everything is seamlessly tied together. Here are the functions:

1. Profile - This is where you list and rate your skills, skill attributes ( Martial Arts is my skill. Strengh, Flexibility are attributes). You can choose to display your peer rated score or your self rated score. Your videos, blogs, any relevant information that deals with skills are shown on your profile. After you are peer rated five times, you receive an anonymous peer rating and skill points. There is a beginner, proficient, and expert league. The higher the league of the person who rates you, the more skill points you receive. Which league you belong to depends on your peer rating and number of skill points.

2. Skill Search - Search for Skills based on different parameters: friends, teams, school, area code, state, country, age, peer rated score, league.

3. Teams - Create teams here so you can grow together. Teams can be created for work or play.

4. Academy - Buy/Trade/Sell Skills here. Say you have established reputation, you can begin to sell your skills without any extra credentials.

5. Skillfeed - We make money off of narcissism. Facebook's homefeed shows off what people have DONE. This shows off what people can DO. Who you are is what you do. And there currently exists no way to low-key show off your skills.

6. Competition - Bet Skill Points against each other.

The revenue model works like this: you search pole-dancing as a skill and businesses who sell poles will advertise. Search skateboarding and skateboarding companies will advertise in that niche. Once a year Level 9 experts will elect a Level 10. A portion of the ad's revenues will go to this level 10. This is to create hype. The problem with the competition is that they do not have hype potential. This does.

Other start ups similar:

skillpages.com began 2 years ago- raised 14 million in venture capitalist funding. It's like facebook, but you add your skillls and find other skilled people. However there is no rating system or social potential. Go on and check for yourself.

skillshare.com began 2 years ago - raised 8 million in venture capitalist funding. Connects teachers and students online with any skill. Math, Djing, Writing. However, the social potential is greatly diminished by the fact that skills are transferred only via teacher-student.

https://helpouts.google.com/home - This is the scariest one for me, because it comes REALLY close. You search things you need help with. It doesn't rate your individual skills persay, but it does rate your classes, which is very similar. However, it does not personalize skills in the sense that I can't make a profilebased on my skills. This came out a week ago.
