Checking out the lean, ad-free, social network Ello.co in beta

elloCurrently the Ello.co “minimalist” social network is in beta and
   by invitation only and populated with creative types and fewer
   social restraints. This is “pretty open” but I can’t say I’m overly
  enthused with some of the content, although haven’t given it a fair shake.

The black and white and simplistic text and graphics on pages are appealing, as is the “plan” to remain ad-free. I was disappointed my normal @RichC was taken — so signed up as @RichCorbett and nosed around for 5 minutes. So far I haven’t adding many friends or started any posting … and  will mention that I have a few “invites” – send me a message while I have them (first come, first served).
