Now blogging at diego's weblog. See you over there!

now *this* is what "2.0" looks like :)

As usual, I emerge from my blog hibernation to comment on a cool release we're doing. :) Who knows, someday I may even get my mojo back and keep at it.

Today, it is our launch last night of three new social websites: Photos, Videos and Group. Now we did have versions of those apps before, but nothing like what's there now. The Videos app, in particular, uses our new video transcoding APIs (which allow you to request transcoding into .FLV format of any video uploaded into Ning) as well as supporting embedding from other services. As usual, the point of a site on Ning is to clone it and make it your own, and we've done a lot of work to make it easier to do just that. There's more to do of course, and the next few months will be packed with updates to these apps. Plus, cool embeddables! :)

The apps have been showing up in the blogsphere, starting with GigaOm Tuesday Night, then linked by Battelle, both of which had pretty nice things to say. :) For a more internal perspective, check out David's and Kyle's posts, and that from the Ning blog.
