So, I’m rather excited about this find. Muti is a website where you can submit stories and readers vote on whether or not they like the stories, if you’re familiar with Digg or Reddit you know what I’m talking about already. If you want to know how it works in greater detail click here.
I’m always excited to see web technology (my field) integrated in Africa (my home). We, as an African community, need to embrace and support those of us who create tools that increase information flow and further technology use in Africa. Make sure you register there, vote on stories, and most of all submit stories to be voted on.
To be honest, the Muti site is a little raw still, but it has great potential and I am really looking forward to seeing it evolve as the developers improve upon the base concept. So far the functionality of the voting mechanism and ease of use for submitting stories is right on. Registration is super easy and non-invasive, thumbs up for Muti on that too.
My one suggestion, is to get a good creative guy on that site and spruce it up. There’s nothing like a good clean (brighter) user interface to bring in, and impress, new users. Of course, this is mostly a subjective thing, so my suggestion would be to get more feedback from other users.
Okay, so my first submission was MentalAcrobatics “An African Tournament”.
