I haven’t taken a detailed look at it, but from what I’ve seen, it may be successful like a catchy tune in the summer time. So yeah, take it for a spin. You can even watch Robin Good’s YouTube screencasts of ScrapBlog before hand.
TechCrunch, founded on June 11, 2005, is a weblog dedicated to obsessively profiling and reviewing new web 2.0 products and companies. In addition to new companies, we will profile existing companies that are making an impact (commercial and/or cultural) on the web 2.0 space. TechCrunch is edited by Michael Arrington, who also writes a companion blog, CrunchNotes.
This time around, things seems to be quite green. Other notable features of the redesign would be that the main-content area got moved from the center, to the left. Following that, most of the ads were then flanked on the right, which used to be on the left and right sides of the main-content.
I don’t know what it is, but the green skin just reminds me too much of Technorati’s. Besides that, I think the font-size and line-height improves on usability from the last version. Although, I kind of am still used to the subtle, natural colors of the last one. Anyways, congrats to Michael and cre8d design/Rachel Cunliffe on the launch.
Flagr was founded by Matt Colyer, David Wurtz adn Cole Poelker — all college dropouts from Boston. They are collecting emails on their site for a private beta… but the company promises to allow people to send tips on real world stuff in via a text message on a cell phone. Type in the title, address and comments, send it to Flagr and broadcast it to your friends or everyone. Their tagline is “sharewhere”.
