Jamespot.com — Episode 2: Now twice as good (and — bonus! — still in 'Jéta')


About a year ago — on October 18, 2007, to be precise — I got wind (no, that's different from breaking wind... but I digress) of Jamespot, a "Multimedia RSS Customizable Search Engine."

At the time I wrote, "Sounds promising and looks even better but alas, far too taxing for my TechnoDolt™ peabrain — though not your big fat thinking cap."

Well, guess what?

They've been busy out back in the Jamespot skunk works, so much so that CEO Alain Garnier emailed me yesterday as follows:


    Remember your article on our first version of Jamespot?

    Since that time we have split the service in two:

    www.jamesoo.com is the genuine but still innovative (hope so!) site, and

    www.jamespot.com is a new social bookmarking service for easy blogging

    Well, I would be happy to have your feedback again!

    The Jéta version


I had my crack research team check out both newly-hatched sites.

Up top is a screen grab from jamesoo and below


one from the new jamespot.

My team found lots of interest both places, so much so they insisted I have a look too.


Did I mention how much I love my new bar code (top)?

Well, your right. We're trying to explain the process. Thanks for the feedback.
To install the "Spot-It" bookmarklet just go to
And follow instructions.
Hope it helps.
Happy Spot-It!

Ok.. I've set up a spot, but where do I go from there? They need to work on the instructions. Screengrabs in French do nothing for me. I am still trying to figure out how to get a Spot-it bookmarklet on my toolbar. So far.. meh.

Bar code. I thought that was when they stamped the back of your hand so you could go outside for a cigarette and still get back in. Guess I haven't been paying attention. Again.

Really though, cool.
