SuprGlu is about bringing the pieces of your web content together into one central place for you, your friends, and maybe even your friends to-be. Do you already use services like del.icio.us, flickr, blogger, typepad, etc? SuprGlu is a new way to gather all your content from those sites. In a nutshell, SuprGlu:
* gathers your content from popular webservices and publishes them in one convenient place.
* presents your content with simple, great looking templates which you can customize.
* is FREE to use!
So in less than 10 minutes, I had glued together 4 or five pieces of my extended, syndicated self. The beauty of the glue is that it uses info that is publicly syndicated elsewhere. This is very much in line with Scott Wilson’s notion of the Future VLE… and prtty much is a working case that an Electronic Portfolio system may need not be some monstrous, code pile enterprise application, but as simple as an aggregator of artifacts stored elsewhere.
Whether that is far fetched or not, SuperGlu is the living example of what a few of us Canadians and pseudo Canadians have tossed about as Rip. Mix. Learn.
It works. It uses open (simple) content (RSS). It’s free.
I’m into the Glu.
