Huminity. Kind of an under the radar group blogging freeware application which has some rather interesting concepts in it. Like an inbuilt chat engine…yeah hold on, there’s more…with an embedded visualisation map of your social circle of friends. So now, not only can you chat with your mates, but also bounce off the map to their mates and have a chat, and then to their friends and so on. It’s kind of 6 degrees of Linked In meets Blogger meets AIM. Definitely worth a look-see.
Searching a path between two people is one of the most exciting features in Huminity. Through the search path ability the user can search a path of friends between any two people that are included in Huminity, either as users or even as contacts of someone. In this way, a complete and authenticated web of connections can be created even when some pieces of the connections “puzzle” are missing. The search can also be performed between a person and any keyword (i.e. from the user to all the mechanics in London).
