Kontain – Share your life

Kontain – Splash 20080919, originally uploaded by stechico.

It seems that the Swedish firm, Fi ((Fi delivers premium interactive services and media platforms. From offices in New York City and Stockholm, Fi has worked with and continues to attract world renowned clients. In 2007, Fi was the first inductee into The FWA Hall Of Fame.)), has “re-designed, re-tooled, re-developed and even re-named” their 2-year old project Propod, and have re-launched it today as Kontain ((Kontain is the creation of Kontain LLC, a wholly-owned subsidiary of the award-winning interactive firm, Fantasy Interactive, Inc. (‘Fi’).)).

Kontain is a free website for you to blog and share your photos, videos and audio with friends, family, even beautiful strangers.

Kontain is almost ready for an official beta launch in October. Beta invites will be available in a first come, first serve basis by signing up at the site, http://kontain.com

Some features of Kontain are:

  • Search and explore millions of media rich entries
  • Easy enough for Mom and Dad to use
  • Playful drag and drop organization
  • Easy uploading of photos, videos and audio files
  • Designed by passionate interactive designers
  • Blog easily with text and media
  • What You See Is What You Get inline editing

I can’t wait to test this out. But it’ll be hard to pull users like me who are still in awe after moving from years of Movable Type to another CMS/blogging platform (like WordPress). Then again, Technology does crazy stuff to us human beings. It’s like freshly made lemonade on a hot summer day, the thought of it just makes your mouth water. In the end, you just have to give it a try.

On a side note, I like the background-image treatment on their splash page. Also dig the flash movie right up top. Not to mention, the nicely picked photos adding to the exment of the product.
