Amatomu – South Africa’s answer to Technorati?
It’s still in a testing phase, and there are lots of bugs to work out, but it seems to be quite a useful way of finding what South Africans are blogging about.
There doesn’t seem to be any way of reporting problems, except through the main Mail & Guardian page (the M&G runs the site), so I’ll mention some of them them here, in the hope that someone sees them.
- There doesn’t seem to be a way to log in or out. There is a “Sign up” option, but tring to log in there produces the message that this e-mail address is already in use.
- How long will it remain a South African blog list? Is there anything to stop pyramid marketers from Korea or penis enlargers from Oklahoma from signing up?
- There is a category list, though I haven’t found a way of searching it yet. It might be good to have some discussion on it, to refine it a bit.
Apart from that, it’s looking good so far, and I wish them every success.
