Feel The Force Luke: Web 2.0 Reloaded

I just found the coolest web application (for now). It is called Ning.

Ning is the latest startup of Netscape co-founder Marc Andreessen. Ning is giving consumers free tools to create and operate specialized online social networks of their own.

Since I have become interested in the phenomenon of Web 2.0, I have been looking at several social networking sites. This one rocks!

As Ning CEO Gina Bianchini says, "Other social network sites ask you to join their world. We are about people creating their own worlds".

The two-year-old Silicon Valley-based company said the new service, to be introduced on Tuesday, allows casual Web users to create, within a matter of minutes, a highly customized social network for one's friends, family or acquaintances.

Users within each Ning network can select the latest Web features for watching videos online, creating a photo slideshow, listening to music or publishing a blog. Members have far greater flexibility over the look of their personal profile pages, buddy lists and site color schemes.

As a test if their services, I created Kaffenated Incorporated

I created Kaffenated Incorporated in about thirty minutes. Kaffenated Incorporated is Web 2.0. My little experiment with it anyway. It will be interesting to see what it turns into (if anything). Feel free to post anything you want and make it a little part of you. Go to now.

Let the evolution begin....

EDIT: Looks like Ning is having some birthing problems (it just started today). If the site is not working, check back again soon or go to the Ning blog for updates.

EDIT Part Deux: Up again. Thanks Gina Bianchini and team!
