Here’s what it comes down to. Currently, I have a few people contacting me to check out their products or beta test them if I’ll write about them. I just love that. I’ll do it for any product as long as I see some life in it — good or bad — because ideally I hate ranting about bad products and I’d rather rave about good ones but if it come down to that, I’ll do it. By life, I mean that it features:

  • A fresh idea. Even if it’s been done before, for example, that it’s not a straight feature-to-feature copy of Bloglines. By that, I mean, it should have a fresh approach even if it’s based on an idea that’s been done. Or, if it’s something like a search engine, it’s doesn’t return 1 result for “Web 2.0” 😉
  • A usable UI. Just so you know, I’m not a craigslist or Syndic8.com person, but I don’t mind them because they’re usable. As long as your UI is usable, and you can imagine your targetted-audience making use of it on a regular basis, that should ideally mean it’s good.
  • A team of ambitious people behind it. I hate the fact that Web 2.0’s been coined a buzz-word and that it’s been said to be innexistant. And I know exactly who’s to blame — unambitious people looking to make an ambitious amount money. I can usually make out what sort of project something is, even though I don’t know the people behind it. I don’t care if you have $100 of funding or $25 million, if I can make out an ambitious product, however bad it may be, I’ll review it.

So, if you think your project qualifies to that, here’s how you can contact me:

E-mail: Best way and to avoid overload I’d like to keep it the only way. sid@rev2.org. As long as it gets through the spam filters (which usually means your IP must have a clean history, and the message should look unspammy), I’ll look at it.

But please make sure to include the following:

  • A link to your product
  • A brief summary (even a three-worded thing I can understand — “social news site”)
  • If it’s a private beta, login information or a URL — not required on your first e-mail.
  • An e-mail where I can send feedback to (preferably someone on the top of your company like your CEO) and get in touch.
