First and foremost, I’d like to make it clear that I support local projects.
Project 500 has since evolved to be Weave.
It was finally made known to the public that the party behind it is Digi.
Weave is just like friendfeed, a social network aggregators, where you will be able to link all your social networks in a single website and view them or update them in a single place.
Most of the social networks are available for integration, but I still have not find myself the compelling reason to actively use it.
First of all, I have doubt this insecurity of giving my login credentials of a website to a third party.
Well, that was fixed for Facebook, as it now uses Facebook connect.
However, there are other services that are not.
Besides, an aggregator mostly do not have all the functions available from the original service. How do you retweet for twitter for instance, or whatever new features that are being released?
I think Weeave will or should think about how this project should be compelling enough to be used by the users.
Maybe it could utilize the infrastructure of Digi for additional functions, rather than just pure sms commands.
Besides, the sms commands only acts as revenue for Digi and doesn’t really bring advantage to users.
Think about it.
