Goowy morphs into YourMinis
12 November 2006
Since my last entry on dynamic personal home pages I perceived that space to be maturing with fewer new entrants. However today I read in a TechCrunch post that the very early, Flash-based Goowy offering has been refocused and emerged as YourMinis. It is certainly much slicker with lots of gadgets (minis) born out of the Goowy days. I really like the way that each mini can be assigned a distinct URL so you can point to it directly in a blog or email, for example. Flash has definitely not been killed off by pure Ajax yet.
Of course TechCrunch lists the other usual suspects in NetVibes, Google IG, Live, ProtoPage and PageFlakes. [All except Google IG are at their respective name plus .com.]
