YorQA.com

November 25th, 2006

yorqa.com
I am currently testing yorQA.com. This is a more personalized “Question/Answer” site. YorQA is basically centered around a widget that sits on your blog and allows your users to see that you are online and ask you questions. YorQA is currently in invite only beta testing so expect some bugs if you are trying to ask questions.

I know other “answer” sites have widgets. (yahoo answers and answerbag to name a couple) But this seems more personalized. The other answer sites almost seem to be an extra step between you and a user.

This is a “Revenue sharing site”. Not sure how exactly how that works. You need to plug in “your” Google adsense code and then YorQA will split the revenue 50/50 with you. Must be that your answered questions are collected into a searchable index.

As of right now I am having some difficulties using this service. But as with all beta testing this is to be expected.

If you have an absolutely pressing question try out the yorQA widget (pink in sidebar) If it doesn’t work…email me (under my photo)

This Next: New “Blog it” feature

November 22nd, 2006

This next has added a "Blog it" feature that allows you to easily add any of your lists to your blog. They have made it almost too easy.

I am posting my wish list just in time for Christmas. In case you would like to get me a gift.

I am also using the This Next post window for this post. This Next gives you control of the size of the image, lets you choose the number of images and their layout. You also get to title your post and write your post all from this next.

This rocks! For those of you that were using the recently blocked Stickam Stickam.com

Here is an example of Vidiac working on a MySpace page.

Unfortunately, at this time Vidiac does not work with Mac (Apple)
This is their list of requirements for the “Vidiac Live” service.

“Supported Devices and Operating System

USB webcams made by manufacturers such as Creative Labs and Logitech are fully supported as are DV camcorders connected via Firewire. Currently Vidiac Live is fully supported by Windows XP and requires Windows Media Encoder (included in the install file) and Microsoft .NET 1.1. “
