  1. Possibly the best 2 word description of the reality of the web 2.0 world –“instant imitation”.

    If a crash is to come it is because with a little grease work and knowlege it’s way to easy to build a new web application and too many teams are chasing the tail of the dog (not too me mistaken with the long tail).

    Hopefully teams will address HARD problems again, looking outside the (current) box and me too application space to build an application that is new and usefull to a large.


  2. This is good fodder for companies who are already positioned with a user back and revenues. I will borrow their ideas and incorporate it into the product I’m now building.

  3. SlideShare launched a related service called slidecasting a few days back; it a dead simple way of mixing slides + any podcast. Its actually a mashup of slides & any mp3 url. It seems to be working well and they already seem to be having a lot of slidecasts that users are making. check this one out, currently playing on their home page


  4. Hi Om,

    I did take qlipmedia for a test drive but dont have much to share. The service needs .net and that takes 10 minutes to install.

    Post that the app is stable. UI is ok. Feature set is moderate. But then they are in beta. So i guess i must wait for improvements.

  5. “PS: If you happen to test drive their software do let me know what you think. I have not tested it since it doesn’t work on a Mac.”

    We’re just about 75% finished in transitioning 200+ people to Macs (plus half of our servers for now).

    Stuff like this boggles my mind these days. Especially with the early adopter crowd “early adopting” macs these days. I find it actually inexcusable. Microsoft is better these days at building Mac aps than many of these start ups (silverlight). Maybe that’s an exageration.

    Oh well. Pass.

  6. Well yes, it is disappointing that they don’t have a Mac version. And I think the initial crowd that would LOVE and USE this software IS the Mac crowd — ’cause we cool like that! [smile]

    But, I’m also set up with a PC in my office, so I tried it out anyway. I think it’s excellently simple . . . which I really like cause though I love hanging out with “techy” people – I’m woefully NOT techy at all. I love the simplicity of this software and I’ve already begun working on some qlippits to put up on my business site to help my clients and visitors learn how to use a Virtual Assistant effectively.

    I would like to create several simple online courses using this software because it’s so easy and quick . . .I’m trying to figure out a way to make money from this endeavor. I hear the PRO version will be coming out in a while, and I’m wondering if they will allow you to put your OWN advertisements in Qlipboard PRO or something. That way you can have sponsors as part of your little Qlippits. Can you imagine how great that would be if you had a blog? Or how you can have a software company be a sponsor for your little Qlippit online course?

    I’m hoping that something like this will soon become available. I think I’ll drop them a note about this. But, anyway, it’s a good little software package. And as an every day Joe (Joelette, actually), I can see many uses for this quick and easy web tool.

  7. I came to know the existence of this software through an article in the paper.
    I cam to this site out of curiosity. I will try it out. I have to send my drawings to my clients. With this added feature of being able to add vocal explanations, it would make it fantastic I suppose.
    I hope I can do a good job. Like with all the new software that we use, either one takes to it and lives with it or one cannot figure it out and leaves it alone.
    Lets see what my position on this will be.
