My Review: I am not issuing a review score due to conflict of interest.
Let me disclaim in no uncertain terms that this site was started by some very close friends of mine, and I am personally involved as well. I mean for this post to be informational. I want both of my readers to know about 12seconds.
As you will see from their blog post, 12seconds.tv is launching their public alpha today.
12seconds is the brainchild of some friends in Santa Cruz who love the web, love technology, love twitter, love their iPhones, and can’t help but start company after company. This is serial entrepreneurship at its best. The basic idea behind 12seconds is video status, being able to record and share little moments from your life. Use a webcam or cell phone you can record videos up to twelve seconds long. That’s it.
You can link your videos to your Twitter account, so anyone who follows you there can receive will receive videos through your Twitter feed. Friends can also visit your 12seconds page directly, or subscribe to your 12seconds RSS feed. You do NOT have to be a member of the site in order to watch other people’s videos. Request an invitation to join the site here.
This idea is a cool one, especially if you have a cell phone that records video. It’s easy to imagine being out at a bar with friends, out on the street where you see something funny, or at a Bar Mitzvah during the Haftorah service and wanting to publish the moment and share it with friends. What if you’re on vacation at the grand canyon and standing over that crazy skywalk platform? What a cool moment to share with friends and loved ones. Here’s a link to my 12seconds channel.
