Cliqset founder to launch “Glow”
Founder of Cliqset, Darren Bounds, has turned his eyes to another project he is working on. Glow is still in stealth mode but according to Bounds its basically Twitter, combined with Facebook and “some of his own ideas mixed in.” The service will include Likes, @mentions, privet group messaging all in real-time. It will carry in some of the feature that Cliqset used like Activity Streams, Salmon, PubSubHubbub, and Portable Contacts. Bounds says he is taking the approach that Dispora, Statusnet, or OneSocialWeb has of allowing users to control most of the privacy and giving them ownership of all the content on there profile. The interesting thing? Bounds doesn’t plan on building a company around Glow. The reason? Well we can’t be sure but if we had to guess he dosen’t want to put it threw what Cliqset went threw, it seemed like it was growing but had very little actual we activity on Cliqset.com forcing it to the deadpool. We believe that this means perhaps he will base it around your Facebook and Twitter’s feed allowing allot less activity on the network but still encouraging it. It will be interesting to get a look at Glow, luckily we won’t have to wait that long, the first set of invites for Glow is rolling out in the next 2 weeks.
