Have young kids? Like your parenting with a little bit of sass? Check out Sippycup, an all-new blog for Los Angeles parents (though there are tips for moms and dads around the world) with a number of related Ning apps, including Unfortunate Kids’ Names and a parent-oriented version of Confess.
Here at Ning, we love hooking stuff together in weird and wonderful ways, resulting in eccentric-but-useful marriages such as eBay & Google Maps, Ajax & kittens and the coffee machine & Diego’s brain.
UPDATE: We should be back in action. Thanks!!!!
We’re lucky enough to be able to live in a world with Cute Overload, which today rolled out the soon-to-be-famous Caption Me! app. The photo is Cute Overload, but the caption is all you. Sort of like the New Yorker but for kittens, puppies, and absurdly small horses.
On Monday we passed 10,000 apps running on Ning. Wahoo!
Thanks to everyone for your support of this little service. We hope you continue to find it of value and, on occasion, an oasis of the fun and clever. Ok, maybe just fun.
I’ve been getting really excited about Ning’s potential for non-profit projects. What I hadn’t considered is the potential for those who want to lend assistance where they can but aren’t yet involved in a particular non-profit.
So, you might think about Ning as the place to create mash-ups with open web services. Well, tonight we’re releasing the just-out-of-beta version of our own Ning Atom API. This means that it’s now just as easy to pull data out of Ning and into your own blog or website as it is to pull data from other services into Ning. Neat, eh?
Happy April Fools 2006! I was doing some late nite browsing and ran into a story in Digg about a Wiki page where they list April Fools Pranks. It looks nice. It occurred to me we should be able to do something like that. So I created Ning’s very own April Fools Pranks app (a clone of, you guessed it, Bookmarks).
So there you go. Let everyone know about April Fools pranks you’re finding on-line.
