Jolicloud Me – Bring Your Social Cloud Together in One Place


  1. Jolicloud Me has recently entered public beta and I have only recently signed on to try out the web application/social network. It does appear impressive for what it attempts to do. It is a curation service for your social presence on the World Wide Web, bringing all of your social cloud together in one place. That is the aim anyhow – being in beta you can expect plenty more services to be added as time goes by.

    The articles below provide a useful introduction to the service.

Capsule


I have been having some problems with Internet connectivity over the last few days, so my attempts to return to daily posts are suffering a few setbacks at the moment. Hopefully this will all be sorted soon.

Today’s post is a link to a new social network called ‘Capsule.’ It is a place for setting up a private place for event planning and groups. I have started to use the site and will see how it goes over the longer term, but at the outset it seems to be a very useful private social network type site for small groups and the like. It is in beta development and you need to request an invite to be able to join.

Lagoonia


Today, after ending my 6 month break, I’m posting a link to a new game that I have come across called Lagoonia. Lagoonia is the new browser game from InnoGames. The game is set on a South Pacific Island following a plane crash. The player has control of up to 15 individuals in the game, with the focus being on survival and social interaction with other players. Various tasks are performed, such as building a fire, shelters and gathering food, etc.

Lagoonia is still in beta, so there are still bugs being sorted and it continues to be developed. There is an introductory video for the game, which follows, as well as a link to the game site.

Glitch


Today I am posting a YouTube video concerning the game Glitch. This is a game that is still in beta (entered beta recently) and is being developed. However, there are growing periods of time when the game is open to new users to join and play the game. I have been playing Glitch for some time and I find the game to be quite addictive. It is a complex game, yet quite simple to play – and it is a very social experience as you interact with other Glitchers. I’ll leave you with the video.

 

DAR.fm: Digital Audio Recorder


DAR.fm is simply put a way to record digital radio on the Internet and play it whenever you want. This service is currently in Beta, so it may play up from time to time. Having said that, it may well be a very useful service.

Quotista: Sharing Quotes Social Network


I am looking for a web application that will allow me to store quotations online, that will allow me to search the database, allow me to share quotes, etc. I haven’t really been able to find the application that is just what I’m looking for, but Quotista seems to be the closest to what I’m looking for. I have joined the Quotista network and will begin experimenting with it. It certainly has a lot of potential and is still only in beta development, so I’m sure it will continue to improve. It is already a pretty good site.
