Now on TechCrunch ("TechCrunch
2040: Rich Media & Mash Ups"), thus officially quotable:
Wixi is a media focused social network where users interact with each other by privately watching, posting, and sharing content of all media types, including photos, audio, and video. The site offers a unique interface whereby media can be managed in the same way files are organized on a computer desktop, creating a true “drag and drop” and “click and play” experience. Looks like a Web OS, smells like a Web OS ... but it’s a "media sharing platform".
Guess who is behind the company founded in early 2007?
Oleg Tscheltzoff as CEO/Founder and Julie Wohlberg, Director of Communications. Remember the names? Both work in partly the same positions for Fotolia.
Which venture will turn out to be economically more successful over time? "Wixi will be overrun by porn in no time", says a comment.
Either way, anyone distantly familiar with the selection process for becoming a participant in the TechCrunch
2040 conference knows how tough it is to outpace other applicants.
Imagine a similar selection process for any stock and/or editorial photo conference and meeting: CEPIC Best 40 Only, PACA Just Top 20, VISA Hot 10 Only.
