A little update, I managed to get a Streamy invite from someone on my Pownce friends list. So, I’m now a member of Streamy and will get a review written and posted within a week or so. The reason it’s gone up from a few days to a week is that I start college again tomorrow, so I will have a lot less time to sit in front of the computer checking out Streamy.
By the way, now that I am a Streamy member, I have one invite to give away (one has already been sent to a friend). So, leave me a comment and I will send an invite your way. Seeing as I only have one invite, it will be on a “first come, first serve” basis.
Still on the subject of invites, I’m also now a member of Mash. So if you would like an invite to Mash, leave a comment and I’ll send you an invite. It seems Mash invites are unlimited, any amount of people can ask for a Mash invite.
Same goes with Pownce invites, leave a comment if you want one but I only have nine left.
I’ve just sent my last Streamy invite so there are no more of those left. I still have Mash and Pownce invites though; so if you want any of those, feel free to leave a comment.
Mark, the first person to reply, has offered to send a Streamy invite if anyone else wants one. So we’re back to having one Streamy invite to send. Get your comments in!
I’ve been getting more and more Pownce invites lately, I’m up to 10 now. I know the hype has gone down a bit (well, a lot) but if you want an invite feel free to leave a comment and I’ll send you an invite.
Still on the Pownce topic, I’ve got 4 invites to give away. If you want an invite, leave your email address in a comment and I’ll send an invite your way.
If you don’t want to leave your actual email address, use Spambox. It’ll generate a random email address with a pre-set expiry time which will forward any emails you get to your normal email inbox.
I just got an email inviting me to Pownce (why do I keep misspelling that?) and it looks pretty sweet. All I need now is some people to add to my friends list. I’ve already sent out 2 invites but since both people are asleep, I won’t be getting replies to those any time soon.
First impressions, it seems very much like Twitter. If it is as much like Twitter as it seems, I can see myself giving up on it very soon. One of the main problems I had with Twitter was that if I wanted to add someone and have them add me it just wouldn’t work. If someone added you, they would be listed as your fan and nothing more. There wasn’t any friend requests or anything like that, just an email asking whether you would add this person they could be your friend instead of a fan. Now, I’m all for making the user’s experience easier but this is just useless. I know for a fact that the email asking to add someone didn’t work. It didn’t even work with me, every time I got an email saying that someone had added me, I would only click it so it marked as read then I would move on.
There should have been some kind of “I know this person and want to add them” or “I don’t know this person, keep as fan” thing, kind of like Facebook.
Hmmm, this seems to have turned into a small rant about Twitter. What I’m basically getting at is I hope that Pownce isn’t like Twitter.
Until next time, safe Powncing.
Mashable has a great review of Pownce on their site (click the “clipped from” link to read it).
Now I really want to try it. I need an invite!
|Described as a mishmash of existing services (Twitter, chat, file sharing) that has only attracted attention because its founder was behind Digg, things didn’t look good for Pownce. We expected the worst: but like the iPhone, Pownce miraculously lives up to the hype. Don’t judge it before you test it.
