Yesterday, it was my pleasure to be a part of the BeboDevNite at AOL's offices in Mountain View. Bebo is a social networking platform/website, just like Facebook, MySpace, Hi5 and is owned by AOL. Bebo has been more popular in Europe so far but is gaining popularity in USA.
Sun Startup Essentials team including myself was there and we announced our newly launched program to offer developers free hosting of Bebo Apps with our hosting partner Joyent (learn about the Joyent-Bebo developer program). We also offered access to discounted Sun hardware, open source software, professional services, and connections with VCs.
If you are a Bebo developer, check out this program. Plus Bebo has made it very simple and intuitive to migrate Facebook Apps to Bebo. You have an opportunity here to capture new users of the Bebo community, especially outside of USA where Bebo is more popular.
