    A project we're working on at Transio, we're trying to build the first peer-to-peer news network at www.oculi.com

    Right now, the only way to create content is to download the NewsDock software, which was made with Adobe Air (very cool product, by the way! if you're a flash developer, try it out when you have a chance!)

    Oculi is still alpha, lots of work yet to do, but I thought I'd showcase it here to get some feedback and ideas from you guys.

    Would appreciate any feedback, and if anyone wants to download NewsDock and start broadcasting some stuff, please feel free!

    Aah autoplay video!

    It epically fails a YSlow test with things that are easy to fix, for the most part:
    F 1. Make fewer HTTP requests
    F 2. Use a CDN
    F 3. Add an Expires header
    F 4. Gzip components
    A 5. Put CSS at the top
    D 6. Put JS at the bottom
    A 7. Avoid CSS expressions
    n/a 8. Make JS and CSS external
    B 9. Reduce DNS lookups
    B 10. Minify JS
    A 11. Avoid redirects
    A 12. Remove duplicate scripts
    F 13. Configure ETags

    3, 4, usually 6, usually 9, usually 10, and 13 are easy to fix. 2 is stupid. 4 is really, really easy to fix and should help a lot; the page is a 5 MB download. 1 can sometimes be easy to fix, but not always feasible. A site we just launched at work fails 1 with 39 CSS images on the home page...but it's necessary because the designer likes to turn on every layer effect he sees.

    Hey Arien, thanks... the majority of that download is the autoplay, which is only up for the Android judgement period. Even so, it only plays one time anyway.

    Not concerned with the performance right now, just working on getting the technology 100% functional, but thanks for that resource, will check it out soon.

    I really like the concept.
    Say for example I was interested in the war in israel, I could log on and read other people reports of whats happening, from THEIR perspective, as THEY see it and not necessarily the CNN or SKY reporters views. Its more REAL.

    great idea. i hope to see it grow.
