I Wandered Into ZooLoo and I Could Not Find My Way Out

14Jul09

Have you been wondering where I’ve been?  I stumbled upon ZooLoo last week and I couldn’t seem to find my way out.  Not really… but I couldn’t seem to get a screencast to come in under seven minutes.  I’ve been tinkering a bit and I got the demo down to a reasonable level.  What is the reason for my troubles?  ZooLoo just has a tremendous number of features packaged into one site.

There is the dashboard, which is similar to iGoogle.  There is an entertainment channel where you can quickly access many different videos and watch them right within ZooLoo.  You can go shopping, keep in touch with friends (once you get them to sign up), store media and even maintain a blog.

Many of the features are really handy — I like the Zbutton, which allows you to quickly add items to your wishlist or graffiti wall — but some, like the social area, might take some time to catch on.   The ZooLoo site has a number of tutorials to help you navigate the site, but I’ve put together my own little demo.
