>A New Way to Create a Presence Online – About.Me

>Reading through an article at TechCrunch about a new start up called About.Me, I can see something original, simple, and to the point. At the moment, there are only a few profile on the site until they go public. You can, however, reserve your name for when the site does begin accepting new profiles.

The concept is brilliant. You create a splash page that says a little about you and then you have icons that point to the different sites you belong to, such as Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, and WordPress to name a few. A few of the profiles available are Tim Armstrong CEO of AOL, Michael Arrington founder of TechCrunch, and author Ellen Hopkins.

If you do decide this is a good concept, it would be wise to reserve your name or whatever user name you would like to have as soon as possible so you know that you have it. It will be interesting to see if this does catch on and it becomes a sort of calling card or a one in all website presence. I’ve already reserved my real life and Second Life names.

Will you be joining us as well?
