I received an email from John Reese of BlogRush.
After careful consideration, we have decided to shutdown the BlogRush service. If you have the widget code on your blog you will need to remove it.
When BlogRush launched in late-2007 it spread like wildfire all over the Web. Thousands of bloggers were talking about it and the service exploded to become one of the fastest growing free services in the history of the Web. During the first year of the service it successfully served 3.4 Billion blog post headlines and the BlogRush widget could be found on blogs all over the world; even up until the moment we closed down the service.
This is the coolest application I've ever seen in my life.
I have a fairly active life on the internet. Though it is hard to manage all the different accounts I have (I can barely do it) I found it impossible to achieve a good level of communication between all those different services. Between crossposts, YouTube favs and twitters I was about to lose control over the situation.
Now, with friendfeed, I can easily manage all my internet activity. In one simple and good looking page I have everything I do worth mentioning, without having to do extra work of any kind. It automatically adds every element I give it using various feeds and integration APIs. It supports dozens of services, and for those often a nice thumbnail is displayed, or I can add a custom RSS URL.
So, if you are interested in my web activity, you can subscribe to my social feed and have everything in one place.
A flashy game that simulates the life of a typical Web 2.0 startup. Buzzwords, funny CEO quotes, fund raising, AJAX, social networks, until the fatal acquisition by the giant Google. If you can reach PR 10, that is. d(~_^)b
Current playtime is 20 minutes to me, I won in about 5 and played it again just to spot the differences. Have phun!
After and contemporary to the YouTube effects hundreds of video sharing sites have come up, and more are coming up every day. None of them is half decent, the same content streaming over and over, bad titles, duplicated entries, phishing, spamming, I can't stand it.
So do we really need YAWSS (Yet Another Video Sharing Website)?
