The Lightbox Clones Matrix

 Category: web 2.0
Posted: 2009-04-07 13:02, Edited: 2009-04-07 16:02

Yes this sounds like a new Lucas / Wachowski Bros film, but if you have ever found yourself wanting to stick your head in the ovenbox, after dealing with lightbox and ajax lib compatibility issues, then this is the site for you.

url=http://planetozh.com/projects/lightbox-clones/]The Lightbox Clones Matrix[/url] lists a number of ajax libs designed to embed various objects in HTML pages, such as images, flash animations, movies and iframes. Comparisons can be filtered by Library and Features keys, to hone in on just the lib you need to make you ajax-ing less complicated.

http://azarask.in/gfx/ubiquity_side.png

Mozilla Labs announced today that it has released a new experimental solution called Ubiquity. Ubiquity is a method for non-developers to create mashups out of the pages and content they are already surfing.

This is going to make a lot of Agencies sleep easier at night when clients ask for the most odd little appsthatyouaskyourselfwhywouldanyoneusethisever, but it could make a few cool ones as well.

We have all been hearing about this for the past year, but it looks lie it is finally out, at least for us in NYC. I really like the muted colours they use, but i imagine they may eventually drop in vector ads (or building tagging like the Red Maps), which by design, means they need to mute the 3D.

Go2Web20 ... The 'Complete' 2.0 Directory

 Category: web 2.0
Posted: 2006-09-16 02:05, Edited: 2006-09-16 05:05

http://archive.pxlpark.com/upload/Go2Web20.gif

OK something about this just makes me giggle... go2web20 is a semi 2.0 site, that tracks 2.0 sites! Tagged as The "Complete" 2.0 Directory... (but missing a bunch of 2.0 sites of course).

Basically the service is a directory of social sites that have been declared to be "Web 2.0". Each site is represented by a logo (tres important!) in a flash based app (how very un 2.0) and when clicked, th eapp returns the primary highlights of the site. The bonus here is the sorting feature lets you get directly to the point. And it's a little more fun then Read/Write's VC Chart....

The site was created by Orli Yakuel and designer Eyal Shahar, in Tel Aviv.

...be sure to use the mouse wheel to scroll, or you'll never get anyhwere (no scroll bars... duh!)

The Web 2.0 VC Chart

 Category: web 2.0
Posted: 2006-09-15 03:20, Edited: 2006-09-15 06:20

Read/Write are running an interesting comparison of VC portfolios and basically in what companies they are investing.

This is really interesting to see like this, as this is clearly a road map for the 2.0 haves and have nots. VC money doesn't really mean too much in reality, particularly in 2.0 world, (I have seen a few .coms blow thru $50mil with absolutly 0 biz plan) ...but they do tend to guide the market.

We've put the portfolio companies into 4 major categories. Some compromises where made in order to keep the list of categories short - for example Digg would be more precisely categorized under Social News and Flock as Social Browsing, but to keep the chart simple we filed both under Social Networking and Bookmarking.

In addition to the linked logo of each company, the table below also contains its current Alexa traffic rank - a basic (if controversial) measure of popularity. The VC listings include the links to their company, as well as partners working in Web space. Also, we've included links to their blogs and Technorati ratings of the popular VC blogs.

Socialight and StickyShadows

 Category: web 2.0
Posted: 2006-09-11 02:22, Edited: 2006-09-11 05:22

http://archive.pxlpark.com/upload/socialight.gif

Finally got around to signing up for Socialight...

Socialight is a bit of a 2.0 version of Dodgeball that delves into the faux augmented reality mix. While not exactly true augmented reality, it does grasp the same principles that true augmetned reality will delivery, mapping and post-its (called StickyShadows) in real space. The 2.0 bonus here is that they make it into a social netwerk ala Dodgeball.

Socialight lets you put virtual "sticky" notes called StickyShadows™ anywhere in the real world. Share pictures, notes and more using your cell phone.

As you travel around the world, you can find StickyShadows that are tied to the places you go. The system can notify you via your mobile phone any time you step on a StickyShadow. As your phone buzzes, it will display the media, along with some information about the person who set it. From there, you can instantly respond, leave your own StickyShadow or just move on.



UPDATE: Just got word from Socialight there will be "a completely new version of Socialight later this month which will be much easier to use and will have lots of new features"

Web Photo Sharing Site Faceoff

http://archive.pxlpark.com/upload/foto_shootout.png

Read/Write has a really nice comparison of most current online 2.0 foto sharing apps. It's missing a few good ones (fotolog, bubbleshare), but still is fairly thorough. To my surprise, Flickr wasn't #1 (as so many people seem to use it these days)... but perhaps it will not be as "cool" now that it is owned by yahoo.

Good time for this as I was down in Graf City, LIC yesterday and have a ton of fotos to post today.

Yes.com On-Air Song Tracker

 Category: web 2.0
Posted: 2006-08-23 18:41, Edited: 2006-08-23 21:41

http://archive.pxlpark.com/upload/yes_map.gif

At YES.com you can find out about songs that played in the past 24 hours on 2,500 radio stations. In addition you see the station's Top 100 songs. If you have used 888-YES-8888 you will also find a list of the songs you have identified. You can get songs from Apple iTunes(R) when they are available by clicking on a song name.

Just found this really odd song tracker that shows what songs are being played on-air around the US in real time for the past 24 hours... Basically you can go the the site or access their phone app, and query what song you just heard on any of the participating 2,500 stations. It's pretty accurate as well... (Though I'm not sure I want the umpteen million drivers of the US to be trying to find their favourite song while commuting...)

It does have a few nice ideas that integrate mobile phones and iTunes (which doesn't actually seem to work right now).
And users can also rate songs and influence the station's charts by voting at the site.

It also gives some interesting data on top 10's and 100's of the stations. And for station owners, they have YesBar that spits out your stats for integrating into your website.

Would be cool to eventually get an XML stream though, so you can hack around with the data in your own apps...

Audioscrobbler Browser

Posted: 2006-08-22 01:38, Edited: 2006-08-22 04:38

http://archive.pxlpark.com/upload/audioscrobbler.png

A visualisation tool for finding new music by exploring users' playlists.
Audioscrobbler tells you "people who listened to this artist also listened to...


Speaking of AudioScrobler, I came across this spidering app a while ago called the Audioscrobbler Browser, that uses the AudioScrobler plug-in plug-in and the TouchGraph java applet to show how artist are connected by listening habits tracked by data acquired with the plug-in and not some specifically pre-entered meta data that was pre-selected, as with other apps of the same visual design.

(Note that this is version 0.3, so it doesn't always work all the time, and you will need at least Java 1.3.)

Also for anyone who wants to have a nice stream of the AudioScrobler XML to build apps with, have a look here (Recent Banned Tracks is pretty funny...). I know I'll be using it!

Attack of the Clones

 Category: web 2.0
Posted: 2006-08-21 13:19, Edited: 2006-08-21 16:19

Apparently this summer also has it's version of Attack of the Clones, though this one has nothing to do with our with Han, Luke or Leia...

This seasons clones are of the 2.0 kind, and there seems to be no shame what so ever in launching them...

This month alone, Univillage launches the UK version of Facebook, AmateurIllustrator goes after the DeviantArt space, and a half dozen or so Flickr and YouTube clones... oh forget it there are just to many to list.

No matter what anyone sez, watchin' this kind of saturation the first time around during 1.0, there are lots of red flags here, and 2007 will be a harsh reminder for many. What I am also curious to see next year is how many long established companies, like Habbo, will loose mass viewers as people are jumping around to check out the new kids on the block...

However what I am dying to see is a cloned ideology, as I think by now we have pretty much covered all the bases, with some serious innovation in implementation. Something that just makes you go "daaaamn it's all over for X"... Like cameras with wifi and a flickr widget built in, or cell phones and IM clients that generate your social network for you, via who talks to whom... like AudioScrobbler for friends.

MTV-Tube

 Category: web 2.0
Posted: 2006-08-18 04:17, Edited: 2006-08-18 07:17

As our old friend James Morrison once sang in The End, "This is the end, beautiful friend", which I think this post / announcement somewhat clearly signifies for MTV.

While Viacom scramble and jump at anything with the word social in it, on it or around it, and strangle themselves in red tape, YouTube's announcement this week that it plans to host “every music video ever created” within 18 months, will be the final nail in the network's music dominance. Warner Music Group and EMI are involved in the talks as well, and will provide a substantial amount of content alone.

To drop another lyric from the same song, "Can you picture what will be
So limitless and free", brings us to the next point... It will be free!

I already have a long channel of semi-viewable 80's synth-pop videos on YouTube but this will definetly make things much more interesting for the closet "Network Programmers" if they add RSS feeds of users vid list. Particularly if the add them to my DownloadThemAll plugo in Firefox...

Between this and Apple's plans, the ground work is being laid to even beat out cable and satellites domination for viewer's eyes, globally.

And then there are a few rumours around that other projects in the works will trump even what both of these have to offer, which will clearly send us to at least to round three of the social frenzy.

Digg Labs Stack and Swarm Rock!

 Category: web 2.0
Posted: 2006-08-06 21:28, Edited: 2006-08-07 00:28

http://archive.pxlpark.com/upload/digglabs.gif

I was over at digg labs last night and came across swarm and Stack. Swarm is definetly my favorite of the two. Hopefully they start playing with FLOYDS some day as well, that would be seriously nice, and I'll suggest it to them once i'm finished here!

A little research shows that the digg crew worked with STAMEN to set up the design.

Here is the notes on this from the stamen crew...

Digg Stack shows diggs occurring in real time on up to 100 stories at once. As stories are dugg, they appear along the bottom of the screen, colored according to how popular they are. Users digging these stories appear as falling blocks that stack up as activity increases.

Digg Swarm is a more lyrical view of Digg. Stories come in as circles with the title inside of them, and diggers "swarm" around these stories when they digg them. Every time a story gets dugg, it increases in size - so the bigger the story, the more active it is.

Web 2.0 Apps Around The World

 Category: web 2.0
Posted: 2006-08-05 01:50, Edited: 2006-08-05 04:50

http://archive.pxlpark.com/upload/world2.0.jpg

Business 2.0's latest print issue has a nice feature on Web 2.0 apps around the world (Graphic above) . Some, like habbo, are more then 5 years old (i had to use the swedish version way back then even)... Also Read/Write has an interesting top ten 2.0 web apps lists' from the Netherlands, Germany, Poland, Korea and a few others.

Nothing particularly interesting unfortunatly, and most are just localized clones or siamese twins (think digglicious) of many exisiting apps.

Unfortunatly one things I see missing from many 2.0 apps, having worked close to several major MTV projects, is the fact that they almost never go unicode compliant out of the box, nor do they have language packs, or design for anything other then their single language. This would allow globalized scaling right out of the box, with little additional development effort up front.

Flixya, more Current.tv biz-mods launched

 Category: web 2.0
Posted: 2006-08-01 02:12, Edited: 2006-08-01 05:12

http://flixya.com/themes/flixya/new_images/flixya_logo.gif

Flixya, the most recent offering perhaps, is an online video sharing community with rewards.

Social Video networks with rev-share schemes seem to be the thing of the month this July. This particular offering is similar to the the other models technically, except they are tied in with Google Adsense to do the tracking, and also because it's a 50/50 split. Smart move with the Adsense API... why reinvent the wheel after all.

Somehow this just all starts to remind me of the flooz and odd schemes like net banking 1.0. It will be interesting to see if any of these companies make it this late in the game with little inovation, and a lot f server space. And of course how long can it be before the IP police come-a-knockin' when you make money off of their content.

2007 will be 1999 2.0

MTV Flux UK gets "Current"

 Category: web 2.0
Posted: 2006-07-30 00:58, Edited: 2006-07-30 03:58

Interesting news from MTV UK, who are introducing Flux UK. This of course follows the same model introduced here in the states at Current TV in 2004, which just kicks ass (well it did, but is going down hill these days).

Needless to say, MTV will run into the same caveats that all of this social media runs into, they won't have a huge selection of content, that doesn't stomp all over someone else's IP (that is intellectual property to the rest of you). What this means is that users will see the same content over and over, between jamba adds, and get quickly bored. The reason it's hard to get content that is "clean", is that they all try to get exclusive rights or even own it...which scares people off, which is exactly why Current is falling off, even though they offer money for the content.

MTV Networks plans to launch a TV channel in the U.K. that will feature content uploaded by users to a video-sharing website. The Flux website is set to launch on Aug. 1, while the Flux TV channel will follow on Sept. 6, launching in the U.K. and Ireland. In addition to user-generated content, the TV channel will offer other interactive features like on-screen messaging, music video requests and the ability for users to create animated avatars to communicate with one another.

TIOTI or Tape It Off The Internet

Krikey! this is madness... This (and a few other projects of this type) are really going to change things up. I hope to see more IPTV solutions in play as well, with this sort of functionality.

The good ship TIOTI, she be ready to set sail! Yup, we're nearly done now. TIOTI is working lovely (thank you) and we're about to gradually bring in our thousands of beta sign-up users. We'd like to invite you to follow them into the best TV download site around.

Built using the robust J2EE Spring framework and making use of AJAX interface hotness, TIOTI brings Wiki-style content editing for you guys, plus tagging and RSS up the yazoo. We currently index 16,000+ TV shows - 88,000+ episodes - and we are matching everything up with an ever increasing number of content sources.



UPDATE

beebo bands launched

 Category: web 2.0
Posted: 2006-07-29 23:35, Edited: 2006-07-30 02:35

http://archive.pxlpark.com/upload/bebo.gif

beebo is an interesting uk alternative to myspace. cleaner and more streamlined, as well as a bit easier to use... I think it is definetly more of the same, but pretty high profile in the UK, murdoch's home base. I can see it spliting off eventually with "cooler" bands migrating to the "UK'ness" of it all, especially with the glitch factory that big brother myspace has become as of late.

granted things like lostcherry.com will probably win out with the "cool kids", if not for the name alone, because it seems to currently be the most flexible (and ugly) widgets...but this is more for personal sites, instead of band sites.

truthfully this is what i always thought mp3.com or audiogalaxy coulda / shoulda / woulda been way back in the day, and still don't understand why they didn't. ag really rocked !

Bebo, the biggest social network in the UK and one of the largest in the world, has just launched Bebo Bands. Bebo claims they’ve signed up more than 25,000 groups and artists for the new section, and bands can upload an unlimited number of tracks - that’s in contrast to MySpace, where you’re limited to 4. Bebo has also signed deals with record labels to supply music and other content.

mnemo serch engine .02

Posted: 2006-07-23 00:29, Edited: 2006-07-23 03:29

http://archive.pxlpark.com/upload/mnemo.gif

New version of the spider search engine mnemo. Still a bit rough but very interesting due to it's tie-ins with yahoo, youtube and flikr.

I have been watching this engine for a while now, and a few others showing up here and there in various parts of Scandinavia, and think there is some real potential for taking googles place in the not so distant future.

Granted, simple text still seems to be the most popular interface, ala craigslist / google et al. But I'm not sure if this is primarily a generational thing (are people used to a digital version of the common analog), or utilitarian functionality (of command line Unix text type entry).

Either way, with things like this showing up in places like friendster and elsewhere, spidering in 2D and more interestingly in 3D, is here to stay and has some nice potential to sort thru loads of data and create abstract connections much faster then current search archetypes.

http://archive.pxlpark.com/upload/bubblr.jpg

This has to be one of my favorites these days... Bubblr essentially lets you create a comic strip complete with popup "bubbles" using your (or anyones) flikr photos.

You first select photos in flikr, drag them onto the time line, then you insert "bubbles" over the photos, which you can then email to friends and family...

Not the newest idea I suppos as I remember not to long ago working with a large and not too pleasant mobile phone manufacturer (little anagram there)... who had a similar idea, though with tragic execution, but with flikr being a huge resource for odd fotos, this could proove to be a hit and fairly addictive.

bubblr is here at pimpampum
