providing users with a way to record and share video messages with others using their Webcams. Vlip has incorporated a system similar to YouTube’s, allowing Vlip users to post a video response to another user’s video. Both the video and its responses can be viewed from embedded Vlip clips on social networking profiles, blogs, and Web sites (similar to the dynamically updating embeds on SplashCast and Searchles.) Posting and browsing the site requires no registration.
We all have things – consumer electronics, valuable furniture, collections, or collectibles. Whether you have a household of stuff, a collection of great art, wines, comic books, or sports memorabilia – you name it, MyThings provides a safe, easy-to-use place for you to catalog it and track it online.
TryBeta, a service for connecting software beta testers and developers. It’s currently in private beta itself, and I’m undecided on whether it’ll take off.
AssignmentZero, a peer produced journalism – or “citzen journalism” – project. Wired coined the term “crowdsourcing”, so if they can’t make it work, no one can. I’m skeptical about whether any of this stuff can be successful due to the headaches of managing large teams – Wikipedia broke out, but WikiNews didn’t. The project is funded by Reuters, but it’s a non-profit.
