Pownce is Kevin Rose’s (of Digg.com fame) latest venture. Its pretty much Scrapping meets Mini-Blogging meets File Sharing. Personally, I am not a fan of Twitter and similar services. I am not interested in knowing if my friend is taking a bath or eating breakfast or is getting a massage. In spite of that I see definite potential in Pownce. There are two things that makes it stand out.
Ability to send files to a single person, to a group or to everyone in my buddy list.
Similarly you can send messages, links and event updates to a single person, to a group or to everyone.
Pownce is mainly web based however a light-weight desktop module based on Adobe’s Apollo (AIR) is also available.
I am not going to review it in detail but if you are interested you should check out Mashable and Webware‘s coverage.
Pownce is still very young and I expect a lot more from it in the future. If you want to try it, just leave a comment here requesting an invitation. Make sure that you provide your proper email address, Pownce doesn’t like temporary email providers. I have six invites left.
P.S. : Thanks to The Witness Exchange for inviting me to Pownce.

It’s interesting that you say that. A lot of people in digg seem to hate pownce, even though most of them havent yet tried it. Have a look at this article by Mashable : Rise of the Rose Bashers?

Pownce has the potential to become really good and the best part is that the creators are planning to add more features and make improvements.
