Today I received my invitation to signup for the QWiki Alpha, the product that has recently won the Techcrunch Disrupt; I must confess I couldn't wait to try it, so I went ahead and just tried it:
All in all, a very interesting first alpha, and I'm very curious to see how it will evolve.
The other interesting question is what their business model is going to be.
The What's Next page lists the first ideas: personal and professional presentation, dating, shop and restaurants advertisement, real estate. All interesting fields, but unless they are willing to build their own thematic portals, they would end up being just a feature in some other existing product.
On the other side, at first glance, I can certainly see a use as an entertainment channel: for example as a dedicated channel/application of GoogleTV or in cable TV.
