Track the Twitterazzi with Famery

This is something I can imagine myself using. Take a picture, post it to Twitter with a little social metadata and poof: Famery is born.

This is something I can imagine myself using. Take a picture, post it to Twitter with a little social metadata and poof: Famery is born. Their about section says this:
  1. Famery grew out of a discussion between Scott Rafer, John Sampson and Todd Sampson.

  2. After playing around with a few prototypes, John brought in Tim Rosenblatt and the crew at Cloudspace to help build the site.

  3. When Todd left Yahoo! a few weeks ago, he jumped in to help. And what you see now is the result of way too many recent sleepless nights to get ready for SxSW.

  4. Enjoy!

When I was at SxSW last weekend, Todd Sampson approached me and asked if he could take my picture and post it on his new website. It's simple, fun, and a cool way to track "web celebrities", he said. I like Famery because it's building a new community from scratch. I am very interested in the nature of gossip, and this fits that category perfectly. Biz Stone from Twitter explained today on San Francisco public radio that his service is something that you can't live without once you discover it. It's like being as close to your friends as flying with a flock of birds, pluribus unum, keeping in constant touch with your closest click of peers. Sites like Famery create communities. Although they may meaningless to you, they still bring some value to lives of some.
