    Newsvine actually works hoss…. Don’t you have anything better to do?

  3. ShitCrunch Says:

    Newsvine works, we’ve seen it already. Not very impressed. What’s annoying is that it’s a wannabe mixture wanting to do everything: news, blogs, comments, … not a real worthwhile concept to stay. Apart from that, why the hell another closed beta version? Is Newsvine afraid of showing their (now good working) site to the world? Seems like Flock which was hyped like hell and when people saw it, they bashed it. From a wannabe-everything point-of-view Newsvine seems like Squidoo which is About.com, eh a lot of blogs, eh with tags, eh wikipedia.

    You should ask people that question who hype Web 2.0 every day, again and again.

    It’s too bad that this blog won’t last.

    Of course it will last. It takes no effort.
