Zeole - First big milestone

The crazy idea called Zeole.com is going to see 100 registered users soon.

The story started almost two years ago. I had a case of flu, and my body was aching on all sides. I could not do much but just lie on my back and stare at the ceiling, I conjured up a crazy idea of online network which could help track flu. As soon as I got over, I started working on the idea.

It was around this time, that Kanna joined the project. Kanna and I know each other since college days and that is just about full decade ago! We make a great team :-)

We had a couple of brainstorming sessions, and we realized the idea of social network to predict communicable diseases was not going to work. Simply put, it was social network of sick people, and based on the diseases and the way in which it is spreading, we would be able to predict the spread of infections across the globe. The only problem was, how to convince a sick person to visit zeole instead of taking rest?

So, we changed the idea to what it is currently and before we know, a lot of our friends started liking it. And now we are giving it a nice face-lift. Rush to zeole.com if you want to take a look at our "ugly" zeole, because in a few weeks it will be all "flashy"...

Take a look at zeole.com, you do not even need to register. Tell me what you think...

Looking a zeole...

Hmmm.
Bringing in locality of reference (of info, news, generally content) into a boundless ocean of content.

At the same time not limited to known sources content.

No moderation, content to develop like a wiki. All seem good.

Access to relevant content is important.

Some suggestions:
A search feature would be useful.

In addition to the temporal and geographical locality of reference, couldn't you use additional points of reference (for example, content related reference, such as Music)

Tagging each zeole with tags would help the content to self-organize itself.

@visitor: You nailed it. Searching and tagging :)

We are currently working on richer content, and UI upgrades. taggging and searching coming up right after that.

Finally the all new zeole with the much needed UI improvement is here.

It has a cool blue feel to it and adding the zeolers picture was an awesome idea.
