    [Display site] Writespread

    This announcement, with the subject heading "WriteSpread.com - Home to lovers of the written word...join us" appeared in my email:

    A link to a press release was included.

    I'm trying to figure out just what this site is supposed to do, and how it's supposed to do it. From the press release:
    “WriteSpread is a platform for those who translate their thoughts to words, to play at the forefronts of our minds and be appreciated,” they [the co-founders] went on to say. “It lets people enjoy what they are reading more by allowing writers the freedom to communicate the emotion in every piece of work and the inspiration behind every word they write.”
    Huh?

    It kind of sounds like another display site. Or something.
    WriteSpread will let users share their passion, not just their words.
    Huh? again.

    Also from the release:

    There have been a few websites that have, putting it simply, changed the world. By using the internet, and its mass-sharing capabilities, they have revolutionised the things we enjoy doing most, making them more social and, therefore, more enjoyable.

    Youtube changed the way we share videos, Flickr transformed photo-sharing and Facebook enabled us to share our social activity with friends and family in a way we never could before. Now, a new internet start-up, called WriteSpread, is preparing to change the way readers and writers enjoy and share their “love of the written word”.
    I would say it sounds like YADS, but with a social media twist.

    Why doesn't George R. R. Martin use Twitter? He already killed off all 140 characters.
