MySkip.com: OK idea, presentation leaves Vanessa Feltz bored
Posted Sep 12 2008 11:27am
Do we need another Freecycle? That's the question I kept asking myself tonight at the glitzy, Bloomberg-hosted, B-list celeb-spotted preview launch of MySkip.com (pictured left). The basic idea is sound enough. It's a listings site for stuff that would end up in landfill, and the pros over Freecycle are that it's slicker, has photo uploading, you can send entries via mobile phone and it also caters for the commercial and construction sectors in addition to individuals (or does Freecycle do that already?). However, the presentation at tonight's 'preview launch' - the proper site ain't live 'til autumn - was bad, bordering on farcical.
