Peter Cashmore has a round-up of memetrackers, who want to compete with Memeorandum. (TailRank should be in there!). He points to Two new sites, Megite and Chuquet. They are good first attempts, but lack what Memeorandum’s has – a simple, easy to comprehend, user experience. They are too complicated and well, not easy on the eye.

I agree; as I’ve commented on Pete’s blog I think I’ve spent around 90% of my effort on chuquet.com since November 2004 on the engine and about 10% on the UI.
The UI is the next focus: a simpler initial impression with less ‘fuss’, but allowing the user to drill into interesting stuff as needed.
Mind you, I have had some very positive feedback about the Chuquet way of presenting things…
laurence, clearly you got the whole game right. make the UI so friendly that you shut me up forever. good luck, and keep us posted about all the progress you make
I personally don’t find Memeorandum that pleasing, prefer digg or Blogniscient for looks/design.
Shutting you up for ever is item #1347 on my game plan – I just checked. That’s due Q3 2007, although there may be slippage…
I have cunning plans for the UI, and I will keep you posted. Cheers.
Try Megite again. A new interface just released. Also it can create personalized version if you have an OPML file.
AMBUSH™ Security System / Stationary Vehicle Surveillance System. Patent number 6,940,397
Intellectual Property owner Ben LeMire
This invention is an award winning patent from the history Channels Invent Now Challenge and was featured on KOIN news 6 in Portland Oregon
This new patented technology will finally allow you to record that vehicle break in and use the videographic and audio evidence to prosecute those responsible.
YES! You will finally be able to do something about being broken into, and stand a chance against those who would steal and make gain from your valuables.
If you have ever called the police after your car has been broken into you will see the value in this system. The common response is “we are too busy to do anything about your vehicle break in, feel free to fill out a report but don’t expect us to actually help.”
Old fashioned car alarms are a nuisance and if they work at all it is usually too late.
With the evidence from your Ambush System, it may finally be possible to identify perpetrators, put them where they belong, and recover your stolen items.
