The Venice Project, the latest venture of Skype founders Niklas Zennstrom and Janus Friis, has been going for a week now and we received an invitation to try it out.
The P2P site aims to deliver an internet TV service which is as near to TV as possible, while adding the sort of social features you would get on YouTube or other video sharing sites. The service is currently being tested by 6,000 people.
The New York Times announced on Monday that it will allow its stories to be commented upon, yet it stops short of embracing user-generated content by allowing comments only through third party sites (Digg, Facebook and Newsvine).
It is the first time the newspaper's online site has added a news-sharing tool, which will allow users to discuss its stories on social news sites, though in truth users can do this anyway...
Nevertheless, the paper has embedded links to all three sites onto many of its online stories.
Calacanis-flavoured rumours doing the rounds in the blogosphere suggest that some of Digg's top posters have been paid, or offered payment, by PR firms.
He may have resigned from his position at Netscape, but Jason Calacanis is still keeping an eye on events surrounding Digg. He reports in his blog that a number of Digg's top 50 users are on the payroll of a leading (unnamed, of course) PR firm.
The Venice Project, the internet TV project from Skype founders Niklas Zennstrom and Janus Friis, has gone into public beta testing.
Wikia , the commercial offshoot of Wikipedia, has launched a range of free tools for bloggers and publishers that want to build collaborative features into their sites.
The service, called OpenServing, will offer free software, content and hosting to its subscribers, who can also keep all of the advertising revenues they generate from the apps they develop.
A candidate in the French presidential race has proposed a social "revolution" founded on free, open source software.
Francois Bayrou, leader of the centrist Union for French Democracy (UDF), spoke of his appreciation for wikis and said he wants to create "a society based on shared culture, science and knowledge".
2006 has been a great year for 'web 2.0' with the continued rise of blogs, podcasts and social networks becoming more mainstream.
The rise of 'user generated content' has been seen by many companies, brands and marketers as a great opportunity to grow a site from nothing into a world beating website.
A UK media company has launched what it calls the ‘first intelligent online video search site’.
Coull.tv allows users to search for specific moments within videos, click on and interact with moving objects while the video is playing, as well as adding tags and comments.
In a bid to turn the general public into amateur reporters, Yahoo! and Reuters have teamed up allow users to upload their photos and videos for use on their news sites.
For some internet users, online communities are so important in their lives that they value their online experiences as much as the real world.
The 2007 Digital Future Project’s survey reveals that 43% of online social network members ‘feel as strongly’ about their virtual communities as their real lives.
At a recent conference of big retailers in the US, Google paid search marketing was described as ‘crack cocaine’. Highly addictive, but dangerous and destructive in the long term, and something you should wean yourself off.
So what about the UK? Are site owners also wanting to kick their Google habit? And if so, how can they?
