Loic Le Meur’s New Startup Launches: Seesmic

October 8, 2021

The rumors were correct. Loic Le Meur, a well known European entrepreneur that recently relocated to San Francisco, will unveil his new video startup, Seesmic, this morning into a closed beta.The service is very much in “alpha” and they’ve only given away a few test accounts. They’ll start to give more over the next few days - just sign up on the Seesmic home page to get one. Look for a full launch

I’ve been testing the service over the weekend and, even though it is yet another video startup, I think Seesmic is both fun and addictive.

The service can be described as a video based Twitter, although it is also much more than that. The grand vision behind Seesmic is for it to become a very open online video/television service where people are constantly interacting around both user generated and professional content.

A lot of the functionality behind that vision won’t be built for a while, though. For now, they are sticking to the basics. But a key foundation of the service, right from the start, is that the service is very open with user data, both inbound and outbound.

Loic is also planning a Seesmic widget for Joost… so keep an eye on it.
