EXCLUSIVE FIRST LOOK: UrbanSeeder (tour of CERN up too)

Remember last year at LIFT? We were the first to show you CoComment. This year we did it again.

This is the first time you’ll see UrbanSeeder, a new kind of social network that’s very cool. You can sign up for a beta of UrbanSeeder here.

I did this for Mike Arrington and Om Malik, who are my favorite two sites to get news like this.

Here founder Maya Lotan explains why she started it (she was tired of online dating sites). I really liked her approach and I bet that this site has a million users in less than a year.

This service won’t be available for another month, but it’s really great and worth checking out.

This reminds me of when Stewart Butterfield first showed me Flickr in the hallway of O’Reilly’s Emerging Technology Conference. I had the same good feelings when I saw UrbanSeeder as I did when I saw Flickr. It shows that the best stuff happen out in the hallways at conferences. You just have to look for geeks giving good demos.

Oh, and the tour of CERN and the beginnings of the Web are up too (see Tim Berners-Lee’s NeXT computer: first Web server in the world). Hope you enjoy these two ScobleShows.

By the way, I’m posting this from the boardroom at Seagate, who sponsors my show. Just am showing off what their sponsorship goes toward.
