 What exists out there?

               The working hours of an average human exceeds 50 hours per
               week yet there is not convenient platform to share documents
               and information.
               Academics-centric sites like IEEE, ACM, Science-Direct,
               Google scholar are either paid sites or deal explicitly with
               research papers and expositories.
               Sites like gigapedia.com, enips.com, scribd.com are general
               purpose document upload and public sharing sites.
               These sites are cluttered with popular media, pirated ebooks,
               pornographic content and general noise, reducing their
               relevance to work and academics.
               Academic discussion sites are generally meant for specific
               discussions E.g., dsprelated.com

 Why Companies Should Move Here?

               Companies and institutes have internal sharing of documents,
               but there is no place for sharing of data between
               companies, institutes and startups.
               There does not exist any portability of data.
               Webspace is always expensive and difficult to maintain.
               Unnecessary overhead is incurred by smaller institutions and
               organizations.
               A company has no place to advertise its expertise in particular
               domains.
               Internal sharing is fraught with deletions of documents for
               want of space.

 Why Should Students Use DocShare?

               No interaction between the industry and the students.
               Companies can benefit from the students and viceversa, but
               online networking today is only meant for individuals.
               No archive of academic documents are maintained.
               Students generally don’t have access to other universites’
               documents and sharing data with friends is also clumsy.
               Personal data is not portable in most scenarios, with emailing
               being an inefficient and unprofessional approach.

 Why Should Students Use DocShare?

               Creating shared documents has caught up but doesn’t allow a
               Wiki approach.
               Discussions amongst friends are generally done over mail
               though a thread format would be more suitable.
               Students looking for industry experience, internships and
               freelancing opportunities have had an unfruitful experience
               with conventional jobsites.
               Ideal place to create homepages and professional blogs since
               people could come looking for useful data that could have
               been posted.

 Why Should Freelancers Use DocShare?

               No profiles for organizations on any social networking
               websites.
               Highly customized advertisements would make sponsored
               advertisements relevant.
               An organised approach to freelancing would be provided
               through the concept of regustering organizations.
               Relevant freelancing and job opportunities would be displayed
               on the profile and the search pages to visitors.
               Currently popular freelancing sites are cluttered with
               documents in some cases and advertisements in some.

 How is DocShare different from Yahoo TWiki?

               TWiki is not accessible from outside Yahoo! network.
               TWiki is not an avenue for Yahoo! to publicise its research,
               incase it wants to.
               No personal documents and notes can be uploaded.
               No concept of a “profile”.
               No feeds and no desktop uploads.
