bbBuddy Keeps Track of Your Words
We all spend a lot of time writing textual content on the net. This content comes in many forms such as movie reviews at Yahoo, posts on a message board, and even comments on a blog. For some sites such as Slashdot, its user submitted comments are the sites main attraction. But who owns this content - the original author or the site that displays the content? Forget about what the law officially states, for all intents and purposes, it is the site that controls the content. They control the user submitted content, and if the site disappears so will the said content. There have been documented cases of sites shutting down and people no longer having access to their work. Even most message boards do not retain every post. Its amazing that more people don’t store their posts in some fashion. Literally hours ago a new web application launched that allows its members to store, organize and download all of their textual content. It also allows members to add del.icio.us-like labels to their posts. These labels are aggregated at the single member and community levels, so you can view all of your posts labeled “NFL” and you can also view all of the community’s posts labeled “NFL”. The main benefit of course is that it gives the author control of their textual content. Try it http://www.bbBuddy.com.
