Yahoo! 360 Invitation Only Beta

Yahoo! 360° has entered an invite-only beta and you can read my description of what makes it special on the Yahoo! Searchblog.

I’ve already sent out a few invititations, but I’m sure I’ve missed a few of my friends out there who are interested. I’ve got a limited number of invitations, so I’m distributing them only to folks I actually know (in person) and/or are related to. That means you have my email already – just drop me a line.

[I’m wondering if/when the invites will show up for sale on eBay…]

Into the breach!

Another Reason Randy Has Been Busy

I’m been championing Yahoo’s just announced aquisition of Flickr.

Flickr + 360?
Flickr + Search?
Flickr + Groups?

Use your imagination…

Things are getting a lot more interesting for communities at Yahoo.

Announcing Yahoo! 360°

Since we are both too busy to keep this blog up-to-date, I figured I’d share what it is that I’m doing that would keep so occupied that I can’t keep up with the much needed ranting about virtual worlds, avatars, secondary markets, security and the like…
