Check out Launch: Silicon Valley 2007. It’s a half-day conference featuring thirty tech startups who are launching new products and services. Think of it as a poor man’s Demo.

Noon to 6:00 pm
Microsoft campus (Mountain View, California)
Registration

I’ll be giving a speech called “How I Launched a Web 2.0, User-Generated Content, Citizen Journalism, Long-Tail, Social Media Site for only $10,918.09” at the conference.

Interesting idea(truemors).Maybe this isn't really a problem, or at the very least maybe it's nothing new but it's a question that I've always had about sites like this.

This certainly makes a good point. I'd like to see the response of others on this topic. Makes interesting reading.

Truemors is really a FOAK website that I came across. Though, in India, I've seen television media like CNN-IBN bring in the concept "Citizen Journalist", Truemors is the first one on the Internet.

Thanks for yet another good idea!

Truemors is going to be an interesting ride, it seems. I wish that I could make it out to the conference to see the speech.

One question I would have is whether a site like Truemors can scale. If you have a really large influx of data, what's really keeping Digg-like gaming from occurring. I think the problem with most purely democratized news engines is that it's just so easy to form a cabal to "rig the ballots"

Maybe this isn't really a problem, or at the very least maybe it's nothing new but it's a question that I've always had about sites like this.

I wish I knew the answer. I'm less concerned about rigging ballots than false candidates--ie, junk postings.

We shall see!

this is part of a mission to change the world?

Dang... I'll miss it by two weeks :(

I'm in SF on the 19th-20th for Supernova, fingers crossed :)

Ping me if you fancy meeting up then. Would like to hear more about that [cough] new project you're working on.

I recently came across the site truemors.com and I liked the site itself and its idea.

Interesting idea(truemors). How do you plan to manage that amount of data. In the terms of people reading it and not being lost in it.
It smells like digg.com
Cheers,

One answer is "work like dogs." We have categories. Soon each category will be in tabs to let people select what they see. It's not very similar to Digg other than rating. Digg is to rate content from other places. Truemors is to create content that could in turn be dugg.

Thanks,

Guy

Hey, thanks Guy. I know truemors but I didn't think that truemors is a kind of citizen journalism website (seems more appropriate for a real news website, if you know what I mean).

Any chance you can post your speech for those of us on the East coast that can't get to the conference? Your Art of the Start video was amazing - would love to see this next installment! Thanks! Keep up the great stuff!!!

What website are you talking about when you said “How I Launched a Web 2.0, User-Generated Content, Citizen Journalism, Long-Tail, Social Media Site for only $10,918.09”?

Laurent,

It's www.truemors.com. Hope you like it!

Guy
