Just got invited to jiggle with Fleck - a new wicked service from the Dutch Web 2.0 incubator Meganova. I had a chance to meet with the founders Patrick and Boris some time ago - cool and creative guys, with a deep understanding of the web experience.
The official launch will be on the 16th, at the Techcrunch New York fest (I guess) - and in the meantime the project is in semi-stealth mode.
But here are some first thoughts after playing with it:
- It has a very cool "horizontality" feel - Fleck wraps around your web browsing very smoothly and simply.
- Great UI - I think these guys really managed to pioneer a new concept in web 2.0 UI. It's not totally brand new, but the implementation is exceptional in my opinion.
- Home page has stickyness - it's not trivial to make the first page sticky, but it can be a huge factor. There's more to improve later, but the "urge to check" is there.
Business model? hmm...not sure if I got it, but hey - we're here for fun :)
