Slantly

My old friends and colleagues at Internet Broadcasting launched an interesting new site today: Slantly.com. The idea is that you make claims (Wikipedia has a legitimate competitor in Google Knols, An Arrested Development movie would please me, etc.) and people vote on whether they agree or disagree with them. So it's basically Digg for opinions. (You have to vote to see other people's opinions, but even that feature is up for debate.) You can seemingly build a profile with various claims, which others will either support or deny. Clever -- and a nice surprise.

It's been an interesting shift working on this project. Quite enjoyable, actually! It'll be interesting to see how it's accepted by the 'net at large.

Seems to be somewhat similar to truemors.com.

It's no SportsChat5 but pretty cool. During a startup weekend here in Boulder they came up with VoSnap.com which seems to be along a similar vein. The name is SlantLy.com not Slanty.com, which is unfortunate.

Cool that they're letting folks work on something on the side. I can only imagine the jealously.
