Internet Sites

About a week or two ago I go an invitation to a website called Hulu.com. Hulu is a site that hosts many TV shows and a couple of movies. Now there are many sites on the internet like this, the thing that makes the site stand out is that its completely legal. How is this possible? Its a joint venture between Fox and NBC to put their shows online. It features shows from Fox, NBC, Bravo, Fuel TV, FX, Sci Fi, Style, Sundance, and Oxygen. Some of my favorite shows that are on the site are: The A-Team, News Radio, The Office, Ghost Hunters, Futurama, Arrested Development, American Gladiators, Scurbs and Top Chef. Now some of them only have clips of the show up but they are continually listing new episodes and putting new shows up. Now the site is in private Beta so if you wish to have an invite leave me a comment I think I still have some left.

One other site that I got an invite to is PMOG.com. PMOG stands for The Passively Multiplayer Online Game. Its an interesting game to say the least. Once you create an account you download a tool bar for firefox that sits at the bottom of the firefox window and can be hidden easily. Its easily summed up from their about page:

PMOG is an infinite game built on individual network histories, transforming our web surfing into ongoing social play. With a game head-up display in Firefox, players can bomb each other, wage war over web sites, and lead other users on web missions. Ordinary web sites become caches for items and currency. PMOG fuses an MMO into our WWW.PMOG stands for Passively Multiplayer Online Game. Players play without playing; clicking around the internet turns into experience points and currency.

Theres missions you go on that take your around to different blogs or sites that hte players have found useful. I think of it as a better stumbleupon. You lay mines on webpages and if people find these they shake your browser and you could lose your armor. Or you could find a crate with mines and the like inside of them. Over all its pretty interesting concept but it can get annoying and I don’t quite know how long I’ll keep it going. It needs a bigger base of people to actually be useful I think, and needs to add new items to make it more intresting. It did give me an idea for my own game though, I’ll post that idea later though. This site is in private beta as well, if you wish to have an invite leave me a comment and I’ll see what I can do.
