Same concept with a new twist – wixi

Posted by Charles | October 2, 2007 .

Wixi is interesting startup that is media storage plus social focused with desktop organizer approach. I’ve git the bata code to test it out. One reason this startup interesting is the way it utilizing Flash as integrate part of UI wixilogo Same concept with a new twist   wixi components. Different from yourminis, the Flash desktop that is pure Flash all the way, Wixi uses Flash only when it improves usability. For example, the core function of creating content, where at Wixi is to upload video, pictures,etc, it uses Flash to allow users do the one-click file upload while giving other metadata such as tags. Also, for the contents users created, they can be shared using a Flash widget, as shown below, the Sail Ship. We embed youtube video all the time, but usually embed picture just using HTML img tag, regardless where the pictures stored. The Wixi way is certainly a new approach that adds interactive features onto the embed pictures, and lately, might be a revenue generating place for Wixi.

Anyway, in a nutshell, Wixi is a media centric social network that give users 30GB free storage. Users use the space to upload/share photos, videos and music.

Wixi is a typical startup that spins a established simple concept with different approach. It’s up to the users to decide its success. Drop me a line at comment and I’ll send you one of the five invites I have.
