yeah those invites were hard to comeby. it took me about 3 weeks and about a dozen very annoyed friends before i could get one. the day after i recieved my invite, i found out that i work right across the street from their offices and my boss is good friends with the CEO. lucky me.

I really wish they would have kept it invite-only.

I really doubt user-generated media...

I mean... its a novel concept, but I'm beggining to doubt that it will ever really work unless the community is heavily moderated or something...

Not sure what you mean by "user-generated media"
by barret55 / March 2, 2006 2:46 PM PST

From what I've seen and read since my invite, a lot of the stories come straight from the presses (Reuters, Associated Press, etc.), as well as user- generated/submitted media.
