blog with flock

"We love Flock as much as you do (maybe more), so we’ve decided to make free WordPress.com blogs available to Flock users…"

Hehe….inspired by Ory’s latest posts from Poptech, I just had to check out Flock (these guys even have funny pics on Flickr – well, the usual start up stuff – as featured on BoingBoing et al the other day) and it’s just NICE! Flock is a new browser, similar to Firefox. The difference is that Flock make use of Web 2.0 stuff like tags, blogs and shared favourites as seen on del.icio.us. Of course I don’t want to share ALL my favourites/bookmarks with you out there – BUT!, it’s just a neat all-in-one tool for all those Web 2.0 related goodies like Flickr & Co.

So why would you want to use it?

Simple. It’s a new browser and new stuff is always cool. LOL….that of course isn’t the only reason. I don’t know how long this hype around Flock will actually prevail, but what I do think is that it might take a full browser to help other browsers like FF, Opera or even MSIE get goin’ and eventually realize what users will need in the end. I am dreaming of a browser that works as the basis for all (a.k.a. reference for webdesigners) and still gives us the chance to make proper use of extensions as in FF & Co.

In any case – I am still thinking about this FabLab nini… (thx, Ory!)

  1. You know, I had signed up for the Beta and got the email that I could get going with this Flock thing. Being the lazy white african that I am, I have done nothing with it yet. This blog has inspired me to do great things with Flock. Thank you yet again KikuyuMoja.
