Like Jaiku, you can add other feeds to your profile basically aggregating and auto-posting. No, Hictu doesn’t have an API (at least obviously).
Yes, the ‘micro-blogging’ space is getting as silly as the social network, ‘start page’, and to-do list manager spaces.
Too many silos – all aggregating the same stuff for a slightly different group of people. I predict in 9 months one of 3 things will happen:
- An open source, de-centralized, install-on-your-own server version will be developed (think WordPress) based on OpenID.
- Everyone will abandon their accounts and move on to the next cool trend.
- We’ll all be managing multiple profiles to multiple ‘micro-blogging’ services in the same way we manage multiple profiles across multiple instant messaging services (a la Adium/Trillian/Gizmo Project).
Yes, they’re ranked according to my preference.
