Glogster. An interesting variation on the personal home page concept, this new service uses lots of Web 2.0 lipstick and gloss to help you create your own online artistic statement. You can upload audio, video, images, add text, just about anything you want, and at the end of it you’ll get a page full of you and nothing but the you.
It’s a laudable idea, but if Geocities taught us anything, it’s that most people’s idea of art – blinking text, fluorescent green highlighting and all - is seldom worth spending a huge amount of time over. And for every one great piece, there are a thousand which will hurt the eyes. But we shouldn’t be cynical.
Glogster is a revolutionary way of expressing your mood, feelings and ideas, and it goes miles beyond text or video! Creating a Glog lets you express all those things you haven’t been able to describe by words. It opens the door to a whole new world of communication – just choose a background, throw in some shapes and characters from our galleries, add text, your own videos or photos and perhaps a pinch of music and there it is! In just a few minutes, you can make a digital poster, a colorful medley of ideas, reflecting your own special style.
