Social database gets RIA elements

Seattle, Wash.-based Database platform provider Blist announced new features to its social database that make it “more social, flexible, and useful” along with the availability of a public beta to help meet the demand for Rich Internet Applications.

In lieu of traditional PC applications, the company seeks to create what it calls a “new category” of online social databases that combine an intuitive user interface with a “community of data, data templates, and people.”

The public beta follows a private beta.

The company said database technology has traditionally been complex and expensive for the average person, and besides spreadsheets lacked advanced features. “Blist marries the simplicity of a spreadsheet with the power of a fully featured relational database in a more user-friendly format delivered over the Web for mainstream consumers, including individuals or small to medium sized businesses,” Blist’s founder and CEO Kevin Merritt.
