I was able to get an invite to the new Yahoo meme service. Thanks to GeorgeDearing for the invite. For a detailed breakdown of the service I reccomend goiing to ReadWriteWeb for thier excellent review. Here are a few of my early thoughts after a small amount of time with meme:
- Isn't Yahoo a little late to the party on this? Seems like the micro-blogging attention is between Facebook and Twitter, with Facebook now in posissen of my favorite micro-bloggint tool FrieldFeed.
- When do we get back to usability over coolness. Web application should not be like playing a game of Mist, "Hmmm. I wonder what this does?"
- One big win for meme over twitter is the better linking of posts/replies. I have always wanted more of a threaded discussion so I can follow a converstaion more easily. Nice to have that ability when I want it.
