Now this does look cool. A rival to Flickr. A picture hosting site called riya 2.0 that also doubles as a visual search engine. Looks like you can search not only by word but uploaded: pattern, colour, mood or even a person's face. Could be the perfect tool for people like me with goldfish memory. "I know what it looks like just can't remember its damn name" Its run by the same folks who recently launched like.com. Munjal Shah has a blog here that explains the excitement of getting this new product off the ground.
still really rather excited by what riya could be as a product. if the sketch function works its the perfect art directors tool spookily similar to the Tony Stone promotion of some years back. >The photo libary used simple art directors line sketches to show the range of options they offered) BUT one moan, with such a innovative product its a shame the side bar icon is so similar to LIMEWIRE's.
