Thing #29 Scrapblog.com Part A

scrapblog.com had a good interface but because it is uses flash, it is so very slow. Clearly these Web 2.0 services are built around US / Korean / Japanese / European bandwidth. When will this country get decent and affordable broadband? The other interesting thing about scrapblog.com is that its market appears to be teenage and Gen Y girls. For example, most of the ready made background themes are very, very girly. Not that there is anything wrong with that, but it would be nice for scrapblog.com to offer a few more background themes for the guys instead of all those backgrounds titled "Twinkle toes", "Pink Chocolate", and "Ethereality" (I kid you not). As an aside, it would be interesting to see the stats relating to the gender of people using photosharing services such as scrapblog.com, Flickr, and Photobucket. I suspect their business plans are built around a female audience - not that there is anything wrong with that.
