We've been busy and haven't had a chance to do a Step2 Startups
post in a while. If you don't recall, this is where startup execs ask you for feedback on something they're trying to figure out. This time around, a new Twitter image search engine called ThudIT
is seeking your feedback on the overall concept
. I actually find this to be pretty interesting. We're all used to things like Google's image search, but Twitter has become a more and more important platform for realtime images these days. We all know the stories, of course, about breaking news first appearing via mobile phone snapshots on Twitter -- things like the airplane that landed in the Hudson River, for example. Having a real-time search for images could be quite useful in a very different context than something like Google image search. ThudIT's Freddie Wynne provides two examples, one involving a sporting event
and another about a conference
to demonstrate the basic power of the tool. I could definitely see it coming in handy. But he wants more feedback/advice/suggestions, etc. Feel free to head on over to the thread on Step2
and provide some thoughts.
We're planning to get back to doing more Step2 Startups posts in the near future, so if you'd like to get feedback on whatever you're working on, let us know!
