And the next Twitter is....

Posted by: Catherine Holahan on March 10, 2008

Well, it’s not quite clear yet. But the Web award winners are in.
Here are some highlights:

The game World Without Oil won in the activism category.

Passive Aggressive Notes won in the best blog category. Check it out to read some hilariously hostile postings.

Wikinvest, the Wikipedia for financial news,
won in the Business category. AOL's communal fiction writing site, Ficlets, won in the CSS category.

The London Science Museum's Launchball game-- it's like pong meets
basketball meets graphic design--took home the judges' choice award.

Twiddla, a Web conference software for designers, won in the tech category.

In order to find the next big social network, you need to think about what all the major ones revolve around, then do something different. Most of these networks, if you take away profiles, blogs, and user to user messaging systems, do not exist. This is because they are all pretty much the same. This new website,, is a social network that has a competetive edge to it. It's main goal is to link the world together with the use of photos. Its simple, you take a photo of two people (one on the left, one on the right) then the next photo has to have the person who was on the right, now on the left, along with someone new. For example, the first photo is of person A and B. Then the second photo is of person B and C. Then C and D and so on. Over time, it will look something like this (A & B)(B & C)(C & D)(D & E)This creates a chain effect and creates competetion as to who will be in the longest chain. If you would like to see a real example, swing on over to and view the longest chain (only 6 so far) The website is still in beta as we are working on some technical issues at the moment, if you have any questions, please email me at
