FLASH, I’ve been carping about the Web needing more webring hosts for awhile, only to discover a new small startup webring host webri.ng on Hacker News discussion. This is definitely a good step for the Web Revival.
Webri.ng is fairly basic, it does not have all the features of the big legacy hosts like Webringo. But it has enough to create and run a ring.
Why is a Webring Host Important?
Just to be clear: I’m not knocking the various new scripts for creating single webrings. I think they are important for those who know how to use them. They also have the advantage of being decentralized. But I think the web revival needs both homebrew webrings and third party remote hosts to really get webrings back in the public eye and popular.
I hope you give webri.ng a lookover for your next ring.
