Taking it off-line

So the big hubbub in computerland is taking cool, spiffy web apps and allowing them to work on and off line.  This is a pretty cool concept really – because we all love our gmail, but it’s hard to connect to the net when we’re on a plane.  But it would be nice to write email and then send it once we connect again (like traditional email) but with all the coolness of web based email.  Goog is using a tool they developed called Google Gears to help out.

A post (or really a slide deck) over at Ajaxian describes this:

We also discussed reasons to be excited about Web development, some of the ideas that are out there in the community, and how AIR and Gears can be seen as complementary.

So, what’s that got to do with me!  If you take that concept and apply it to social networking – you get what we’re calling wedia here at wediaup.

We want to combine all the coolness of web based soical networking and mash that up with the standard, “old school” soical stuff we all do with out friends and family – then, to spice it up…we add some wholesome media to taste.

What do you get?  Wedia – or community base, information, cooked the way you like with special sauce and extra cheese!   See, its all in how you prepare it – if you want the same old froze, “go to the freezer and get the box”, we’ve been fed for a while now…forget about it, its still there.

But if you want fresh, organic news and information – you want wedia.
