While winding down the weekend, I came across a site from India called Funpiper. My first reaction is that it's similar to Twitter as most of the users are creating short messages about what they did over the weekend.
I spoke with the founder Ajitesh Shukla who said that the site's motto is, "Your Weekend starts at FunPiper.com." The site is live just over two weeks and has several hundred entries so far. Ajitesh is looking to expand the site beyond India and hopes to help people around the world share their weekend stories. There is a social networking aspect to Funpiper as well. My suggestion would be to clean up and polish the design and try to make the site more "fun." The weekends should be fun and it's important that the environment for sharing what we do on the weekend be fun as well.
Funpiper reminds me of a similar app that closed earlier this year called Weekendr. I prefer the design of Weekendr, it just felt more "fun". I miss the Weekendr guy, he was cool and just made weekends seem fun.
This type of "specialized micromedia" could be a winner.
