Ning.com goes live!

107 month ago

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]

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.
