(warning, im at TechCrunch50, quick rant thats been boiling since the ycombinator pitches) Yes, we are all generating user generated content. We all go to the following sites to publish our ideas:
The point being, there's a ton of sites or tools, and Im sick of going to all these different sites to write something. I publish, I write, I post pics, I publish videos. The key word here being "I" or me. I want one place to do all of these.
Using posterous and tumblr really started giving me the idea/desire. I can use my email to publish to both of these as well as to flickr and facebook from my blackberry. Thats convenient. Thats the way I want to post content, and I never want to have to go to a site again.
Now, please let me do it for book reviews, restaurant reviews, movie reviews, locations ..... I get the vibe that Posterous is trying to start this, but I want it to go further.
When I do a posterous post, I want to tag it as a restaurant review, and then I want to be able to view those on a map, and I want it to go to yelp. You could pass the data via RSS, and then I could subscribe to my friends blogs and grab their restaurant reivews.
When I write about a book on posterous, I want to be able to tag that as a book review rather than having to go repost it to goodreads.
Lets take back the power from all these different publishing platforms. We're already working for them for free by contributing our work, do we really have to be subjected to their bad UI design, advertisements, or even being forced to go to a computer and use a browser?
