Yes yes, I did receive an invitation from the Twine cast and crew. =) Honestly I wasn't quite sure what to expect, and I'm happy to say that I haven't been disappointed with what I have seen so far. The truth is, I also do have the same feeling as Genox about the number of current social networking websites, as well as their quality. [Which is: not a very good feeling!] But now after having used Twine for a day and half, I can say that it's something new. Yes, finally something new! I still have to use it quite a bit more before I can talk more about what it does and how it's like, but from what I've seen so far, to put it simple, it really is a way of sharing knowledge and interests! It's like Wikipedia + del.icio.us + Digg + a public weblog, and it has social networking tools and abilities too. I'm currently very much curious about the "behind the scenes" of it, and I guess I have some digging to do. ;) Oh yes, I also have to mention that although you get a warning when you try to log-in using Opera, saying that the browser is not supported, but actually everything works just fine on Opera, including the bookmarklet.
Also: The online version of Zine #13 is out! Yes, it is, finally! Click here to read.
