Pownce???, what is it? How does it compare to Twitter?
Pownce is a micro-blogging site. It just opened to the public in January, 2008. Because I love ABOUT pages I am posting the ABOUT page below.
Pownce is a way to send stuff to your friends. What kind of stuff? You can send just about anything: music, photos, messages, links, events, and more. You can do it all on our web site, or install our lightweight desktop software that lets you get out of the browser.
Who makes this thing?
Pownce is brought to you by a bunch of geeks who were frustrated trying to send stuff from one cube to another.
The team consists of Leah Culver, Mike Malone, Daniel Burka, Kevin Rose, Ariel Waldman, and Shawn Allen (in that order below). Together, we formed a wee company with a great big name, Megatechtronium, that makes this software.
I just joined Pownce so I cannot give an expert summation. But if you can share your experiance it would be helpful.
