The Blauction Concept
In the vein of life-caching, which I discussed yesterday, how about my concept of blauctions? Yep, this is a word I just coined - a hybrid of blog and auction. This technology would support the operation of controlled auctions on blogs.
Let's say you have a blog. A simple control panel would give you the ability to publish your own auctions... or select from categories of auctions that you would like to promote on your blog. And say your blog covers Red Sox baseball. You could give precedent to auctions of baseball cards and baseball memorabilia.
Just like eBay, the blog owner would get a cut of every sale made on his or her site.
