Over the last couple of years, there has been an explosion of social networking sites each one with its own social network and data base of user profiles. If you are like me, you try out a number of them and, all of a sudden, you begin to feel out of control. Well, MyLifeBrand may just be the answer to this problem. I did a podcastwith the CEO Jeff Jani where he talks about the service, the industry and where he believes its going. He also describes where MyLifeBrand fits in and solves a lot of problems for users, not just today, but also in the future.
They are also in the process of raising a bridge loan of $500K and targeting a larger venture round mid-year. So, if you are an avid social network participant or someone who is looking to invest in the space, give a listen and see if this works for you.
I had an opportunity to talk with Nikos this afternoon and learn more about Lingospotand what they are doing. I ran into the company at the Blogworld conference last November in Las Vegas. The best way to understand what they are doing is to see the demo on the web site.
As a blogger, I am always looking for ways to differentiate my blog and Lingospot is certainly one way to do it while providing a lot of additional content and explanations for key areas in your posts. For the service to work properly, they have to go through and index your articles and posts, which takes a couple of days. Hopefully, you will be able to see how it works when they are done indexing mine.

I first talked about H2O Audio and it’s CEO, Kristian Rauhala back in February 2006. It was a company and a leadership team that impressed me. One of the things that impressed me the most was how much traction they were getting in the media and yet they were not spending lots on advertising. They had a great PR program though.
Well it seems as if they have had another breakthrough by being on the CNBC show, the Big Idea hosted by Donny Deustch just before attending the CES show last week. It just goes to show that you can get your company’s name in the press and create a lot of buzz without spending a boat load of cash. Kudos to Kristian and his team.
The show was great and I enjoyed seeing a local company getting recognition in the national media.
