This is the nineteenth talk in the AG1 series:

Myspace, Flickr, Netflix and all that - Hot sites and trends on the web (seminar wiki)

The (short!) presentations will be very informal and there's lots of interaction with the audience. Rotunda 3rd floor.



ning (Jochen) - They promote themselves as follows: Ning is the only online service where you can create, customize, and share your own Social Network for free in seconds. Public or private and for anything - and anyone.

twitter (Henning) - A global community of friends and strangers answering one simple question: What are you doing? Answer on your phone, IM, or on the web!

wink (Ingmar) - Looking for a person online? Wink is a meta-search engine for various social networks, such as linkedin, myspace or friendster.

peterzahlt (Ingmar) - Ok, at home you might have a phone flatrate. But what if you're at the MPI, or at a conference, or you want to call the US? Who's going to pay for the phone call? Peter pays! [German: "Peter zahlt."]


Send an email to iweber@.. if you would like to present something in
this informal setting. If you don't have any idea yourself, you'll be provided with a choice of websites to present.
