What is the difference between VOX and VIRB ?

VIRB is a place that lets you put all of the things that make you you – photos, videos, blogs – in one place. More specifically, VIRB is a vision of a social community – done right. A website that combines you, your interests, your friends and the things you like with music, art, fashion, film and more. Stay connected with your friends. Find new music. View and upload good videos, photos and more.

Isn't this the almost same as VOX ? If not maybe I need to sign up to VIRB as well ? Can you tell the difference ?

Goodbye Flock 1.1 (again !)

I've been giving you (flock 1.1) a chance every six months for the last few years and this latest time you did last a record 24 hours BUT although you work fine on my work Dual Core 2G work desktop my notebook at home is a lowly Pentium 1G which hates running continuously at between 88% – 99% CPU so its back to trusty old firefox i'm afraid.

I might take another look in another six months time ? (When you @ 1.4 ?)

Cross posting is easy on VOX but not NING !

Here's a good example why I don't blog on NING (apart from their comment wall spaming system). To blog a single story about about Ed/X/Ubuntu I'd have to login / logout to / from each and every one of these NING networks/groups separately then cut & paste the same story nine times to each of these NING networks/groups !

Sorry NING but I would like some spare time to a have a first life !

Whoever created VOX single/two click cross network/group posting is a genius ! It's only taken me twelve clicks to cross post this to six VOX networks/groups !
