Steven Spielberg's Ghost/UFO Social Network To Be Called The Rising
Michael Arrington

More details on Steven Spielberg's upcoming ghost and UFO based
social network, which we first wrote about in early March and
followed up with additional details a week later. The site will
reportedly be called Rising or The Rising - our understanding
is that they have acquired both .com domain names - and the logo
above and animated logo below are at least preliminary versions
of the final.

We originally heard that The Rising is being created in
partnership with Windsor Media, Terry Semel?s investment firm,
but we still haven't gotten confirmation of their involvement.
Windsor was created by Semel before he went to Yahoo, was put on
hold during his tenure there, and fired up again after his
departure last year.

The Rising will have original video content with a permanent
host in addition to the social network where users can share
stories and experiences, tapping into serious demand for this
kind of thing. There are thousands of forums dedicated to
paranormal and UFO topics today - among them is, yes, a Meetup
site for ghost trackers.

Rumored launch date is this summer.
