Yahoo 247

The other day I was talking to someone about Steve Rubel’s great Micro Persuasion weblog and the energy and enthusiasm he demonstrates as he avidly filters key blog news and posts about whatever he cares about (note to self: add his headlines to the list of feeds down the right side…).

Anyway, I just scored a Yahoo! 360 invite and I’ll echo Steve since he’s doing all the original thinking these days (Trying Out Yahoo! 360):

Today I received an invite to try out Yahoo! 360 – Yahoo’s new
blog/social networking platform. I will play in the sandbox tonight and
post some thoughts. If you have specific questions, please leave a
comment on this post.

First impressions are that it’s a pretty good draft of tying together Yahoo’s latent social-network tools and the blogging interface is “not bad.”

    Xian, great opportunity to ask for a “turn-off” ads option (ads could be worked into “info-mercial”-type content or sponsored stories).

    Hey there…I actually work at tribe.net and we are rolling out with a very similar platform although we plan on aggregating external features (flickr, amazon wish list)after alpha.
    you can check it out here and let me know if you want an invite:
