microsoft wallopa link from "Future Now" led me to this interesting website. There is a lot of speculation about the usability and value of the new Microsoft blogging tool called "spaces", but the "Wallop" product seems a lot more advanced and interesting. Of course, Microsoft has the tendency, often observed in other companies as well, to mutilate a great idea on its way from the lab to the customer. Still a product that allows one to:
"... share photos, blog, and interact with your friends. Wallop is a research project that explores how people share media and build conversations in the context of social networks. "
looks very interesting. I am sure Microsoft is not the only company or group working on this. What other examples are out there?
