Four short links: 3 June 2009

Video Chat, NGO Incorp, Smart Grid, and Enterprise Sales Funny

  1. Tinychat — very simple web-based take on videochat. Pro members get higher resolution, more rooms, and privacy. (I like the “free = public, charge for private” business model)
  2. One Click OrgsOne Click Orgs is building a website where groups can quickly create a legal structure and get a simple system for group decisions. We think social enterprises, collectives and activist groups have better things to think about than obscure legal clauses. Still getting built, but a good idea. We’re one step closer to Charlie Stross’s vision from Accelerando of a twisty maze of cross-shareholding organisations whose bylaws are Python scripts.
  3. Trilliant Acquisition Signals Next Phase of Smart Grid — smart grids rely on networked power meters and consuming devices.

  4. The Vendor-Client Relationship — should mandatory watching for everyone in enterprise sales. (via johnclegg on Twitter)
