You have money, loads of money. You need not join the riff raff of the ordinary. You will travel Executive class, eat the best food in the most exclusive restaurants but what will you do if you have to socialize or chat with your community? Join Facebook or any other social media? You will have to rub shoulders with the ordinary.
Well here is the solution- Netropolitan, the online country club for people with more money than time.
It sounds like a joke but it is true. The site has aroused so much curiosity that when it went live, its servers crashed.
Joining Netropolitan is easy if you have loads of money. You need to shell out $9000 as initiation fees and then $3000 a year after that. There are no strings, no vetting process or credit checks and no discrimination at all.
And what do you get for that $9000? Discussions, forums on subjects as varied as yachts, vacations, travel, fine wines, luxury cruise …the list is long. The site is not public except for the home page and all the members’ communications are encrypted. There are no ads; live help is available only during business hours, and moderators keep a hawk eye on the site to ensure all discussions are appropriately tasteful.
The site is a brainchild of James Pouchi-Peters, the former principal conductor of the Minneapolis Philharmonic Orchestra.
James said, “Wanted to connect people with similar life styles who could talk about things that matter to them without the judgement that some people have encountered in other social networks.”
James Pouchi-Peters also managed to rope in a partner in South Africa, so Netropolitan may soon go global.
The site’s landing page reads-“Netropolitan: The online country club for people with more money than time. Connect with people within your social status, but outside your social circle.”
