I haven’t tried the software yet, but I like how they’re developing it:
The concept of Jing is the always-ready program that instantly captures and shares images and videoâ€¦from your computer to anywhere.
Itâ€™s something we want to give you, along with some online media hosting, to see how you use it. The project will eventually turn into something else. Tell us what you think so we can figure out what that is.
Try it, youâ€™ll like it. Find out more in the FAQ, or on the weblog .
Not so incidentally, I found out about this via a post by JP Rangaswami following up on a really terrific post about the incredible capacity of our new circulatory system (capillaries, not a fire hose, says JP). The follow-up post gives an example of capillary action at work. The first post frames the Net as how conversation — taken not just as chin-wagging but as how much of the the work and play of sociality are accomplished — scales.
