PutVoted!

Monday, November 20, 2006

This is going to be a nice test of the crowdsourcing phenomenon in India. There is a site called PutVote. Its a Digg clone. And its for Indians (there are several of them!) . Thanks to Ravages, one of my posts is up there. The Digg effect is legendary and has even a mirror site dedicated to its victims. Watch out for results out here.

PS: Dont forget to Vote!

Update: Its a trickle, rather than a deluge. Disappointing.

We're not as popular as Digg, and may never be, but thanks for mentioning us !

Exactly. So why PutVote then? What is its aim? What do you want to achieve by it?

I get really confused when I clones of popular services for Indians. I dont think they serve any purpose. What Indians want is not a service customized for them, but service which can be of use to them. Just my 2 cents.

Something that may be a big hit with Indians is never going to make the home page of Digg. If you want a place where you can find stories filtered by a community you identify with, try PutVote, and you won't be very disappointed :)
