Truemors Launches – Digg Meets Twitter

Google Launches Universal Search

TruemorsGuy Kawasaki’s partly hyped project Truemors silently launched yesterday. Trumors is like Twitter meets Digg meets a gossip blog. A simple and to-the-point site, it’s been in stealth mode for some time now and recently came to the surface when Guy Kawasaki announced on his blog that he was looking for contributors.

How It Works
TruemorsA ‘truemor’ is basically what they call a post. It can be something that’s just happened and people will be interested in, or cool stuff like what you find on Digg. There are three ways to send truemors. It can be sent through by phone, which incorporates voice-to-text technology to convert whatever someone says in the phone call and posts it on the site, and by e-mail, SMS, and their online service. Once a truemor is posted, it appears on the site and people can vote it up or down. In a weird way, it’s a user-generated blog which people can post to through twitter-like methods and participate in the community with digg-like features.

Opinion
If there’s anything I love, it’s their simplicity. It’s simple to do things. It’s also clear, and admittedly their posting features are very cool. While I don’t know how much traction it’ll get since it’s sort of doing things already done in different ways, but it’s a cool product and its key to its survival is if it’s able to build up a community and get people contributing.
