Don’t quite get Yahoo! 360

Tech Add comments

I was invited to Yahoo! 360, so went over and setup an account.

It is interesting to see the merging of features, but I don’t really get how I would actually use it.

I am not going to use their blog now. I am not going to go through the pain of inviting everyone to the social network yet.

I do think that in the future it may be more compelling. There is a chance for them to merge this with My Yahoo! It would be tempting if I had ONE place to go too:

  • View news / rss feeds
  • Create new blogs (which get put up here automatically)
  • Comment on any forum/blog
  • Merge social networking with other services like LinkedIn
  • One stop shop to view email, address book, etc

They could do it. This version isn’t quite there for me though…

    another fad, will die soon (the same way orkut did). I think it only makes sense for some one who had loads of time on their hands. For me the contacts list on my messenger does the job

    Hey Dion,

    I am working on putting up a catpcha on my company’s app. I am trying jcaptcha, where the backgrounds are horrible. I am rewriting the background etc. Are you using any public library? I want to have the same background and font, if it is available already.

    I don’t want to go with a kitchen-sink portal. Web 2.0 is about small pieces, loosely joined.
