Amazon Invests in 43 Things Folksonomy Project
Amazon.com has invested in the start-up behind folksonomy project 43 Things. Another company, called 37 Signals …
… also collaborated on this project. On 43 Things consumers tag their goals and aspirations and can see what others are sharing as well. This may all be part of a grand plan to make Amazon a social commerce site. Remember this?
From The Robot Co-op:
“Amazon.com has invested in The Robot Co-op. We think it will get easier to meet our goal to Start a company that survives longer than 2 years though we still have lots of work to do. We are excited that we will have a chance to build products that are innovative and change the way people share information and connect online.
