The online voice of cambridge campus students

In the age of technology and many opinions, Josh Gloe, a high school student, has the perfect answer.

Gloe created Project:Informed in late December 2009.  It is a discussion forum in which members can chat, talk about or debate any topic they please.  The goal of the site is to get people involved in current issues and for the members to freely discuss their side of the argument.   The forum includes discussions on anything ranging from video games to religion.

“I hope to turn the board into a thriving community to debate and share thoughts,” says the 17-year-old Gloe.  “We have members as young as 13 and as old as 50, so certainly everyone is welcome.”

he forum has a section for general thoughts, as well as an opinion section. The opinion section is moderated by Gloe, so that the debates don’t become offensive or derogatory, making the site safe for young members.

Armed with a new site and goals to attend a four-year university to double-major in mass communications and marketing, Gloe claims he is just scratching the surface of his potential.  He encourages people to check out the site.  

He said, “It has a laid-back and welcoming feeling with plenty of areas for fun, but also a professional and controlled area for members to debate and discuss more serious issues.”

Gloe grew up in St. Francis, Minn. and currently attends school at Anoka-Ramsey Community College.  He also volunteers at the local church and at Feed My Starving Children. 

Gloe hopes his site is the next big hit. It can be found at http://projectinformed.proboards.com/.
