Yoomoot.comMassive online discussions are two a penny. They always start as something interesting and before you know it people have joined in en masse and discussing whether Iron Man is tougher than War Machine in a discussion that was about how to promote a brand on Twitter.


And even if that doesn’t happen and the conversation is kept focused, it is very boring to go back to the very first posts and start reading it all from the very onset.

That is precisely what Yoomoot is here to address. It will present you with a summary of any online conversation where its main points are highlighted in an easy-to-digest form. You get to see a main column with the pivotal question, and each ramification is explored in a section devoted to follow up questions.

The ones who devised the site made a valid point when introducing this service to me: “By facilitating genuine mass-conversations we open the door to mass-problem-solving and, ultimately, mass-decision-making”. I basically agree, and I think the site has got what it takes for making at least a few people stop and take notice. In Their Own Words

“Yoomoot is led by Barbara Nowacka and Nicolas Holzapfel. We met on an MA in Interactive Media at the University of the Arts London and the idea for yoomoot came out of a project we did together. Messy comments and forums was one thing we and other students all found frustrating about the Web and we became obsessed with solving it.”

Why It Might Be A Killer

The site makes it possible for anybody to take part of any online conversation, no matter how massive it is, or how early or late he is catching wind of it.
