Andy Baio : Ning.com goes live! - 24 Hour Laundry's stealthy startup is an oddball social software playground; mind blowing geek cool
philgyford : Ning | Developer : Home - New site that makes it easy to create your own social software apps, from the secretive 24 Hour Laundry. (I did most of the HTML/CSS.)
jkottke : Ning, a social software playground - Ning is a platform on which you can build your own social software...your own craigslist or del.icio.us. We were just talking about something like this the other day at Eyebeam, a MMORPG in which you write applications to adventure together or fight each [via]
kayodeok : Ning - Ning is a free online service (or, as we like to call it, a Playground) for building and using social applications.
François Nonnenmacher : Ning - Ning (formerly known as 24 Hour Laundry) is a free online service (a Playground) for people to build and run social applications
Linkorama : Ning - Ning is a free online service (or, as we like to call it, a Playground) for building and using social applications.
erikbenson : Ning: create your own social network site - At first glance, pretty interesting! Having trouble logging in but I assume that'll be fixed soon.
Rod Begbie : Ning "Playground" - At the risk of sounding a bit "Less space than a nomad. Lame", can anyone explain to me what's so exciting about a service that lets you build hosted not-quite-as-good-as-existing social apps? [via] #
cobra libre : ning - a "playground" (that is, "a field or sphere of unrestricted pleasurable activity") for "social applications" (i.e., "web apps made up of code and content that enable people to match, transact, and communicate with one another") #
Simon Willison : Ning - A social software app for building social software apps. That's so meta.
Paul Hammond : Ning | Home: Front Page - Ning is a free online service (or, as we like to call it, a Playground) for building and using social applications.
plasticbag : I remain totally weirded out by Ning, even after their relaunch as a roll your own social network service - I honestly have no idea why anyone would want this, and it makes me sad because I feel like I'm missing something quite profound. The benefit surely would be in overlapping social networks? In values in scale? I'm totally lost.#

Andy Baio : Google Moon - try zooming all the way in
jkottke : Google Moon: explore the Apollo landing sites in the Google Maps interface
joshua : Google Moon - mmm, cheese
kayodeok : Google Moon - Lunar Landing Sites - "In honor of the first manned Moon landing, which took place on July 20, 1969, we?ve added some NASA imagery to the Google Maps interface to help you pay your own visit to our celestial neighbor"
gleuschk : Google Moon - zoom all the way in
Rod Begbie : Google Moon - Lunar Landing Sites - Lovely little Googletreat to celebrate the anniversary of the moon landings. Make sure and try zooming in to the maximum resolution to see what the moon is made of. #
jimray : Google Moon - Lunar Landing Sites - Just a small slice of the moon, commemorating the original moon landing 36 years ago. Still cool, though.
erikbenson : Google Moon - Zoom in all the way to see the moon at a level of detail never experienced before.
Linkorama : Google Moon - Honestly, if you are going to visit a fairly large moon, why would you keep going to the same place? What is this, Lunar Vegas?#
