    For any of you in the know, Newsvine has gone live. It is still in Beta, so sign-ups are not public yet... I do though have 1 or 2 invites to give away...

    I have a feeling its going to really be one of the best webapps/news sites/websites in 2006.

    Ive created my own column at newsvine: blogs.newsvine.com - (cool domain name! hehe) :classic:

    my thoughts on newsvine

    I've since been invited and it's looking pretty good. I'm probably still going to favor uxmag though

    It's just that most of the time I'd rather have news spoon fed to me rather than be an active participant in the discussion. I get enough of that in the forums, my blog and msn :]

    I've also noticed that:

    no one is using the live chat feature, even though there was a hundred thousand page views on the first day - I guess this could change when it goes public

    the design is very similar to Mike's blog

    the more function a certain application has, the less usability. I wonder how the general populus will respond to the geeky ajax features.

    There might be other sites out there that do a better job, but Mike Davidson's influence has me hooked! :classic:
