Weblo.com – What is the point
When Sue first mentioned Weblo to me last week it seemed kind of cool. Weblo is a site that lets you buy virtual property, but unlike most games, Weblo is selling properties that exist in the real-world (and real-world celebrities, which I find creepy). The problem for me is that there isn’t a user interface that I can find outside of the webpage itseld. I set up an account I went merrily around the site looking for a link to images of places or a map interface, but nothing. I looked into buying a property and saw that YOU have to provide an image of your properties. With the amount of money they had to have put into this thing there are so many things they could have done to go beyond the underwhelming project it appears to be.
Hopefully I will figure it out and it will make sense since the concept itself is great, the implementation seems to be lacking in its first few days at least.
