There are many products that purport to solve the problem of Web pages still being fundamentally difficult for just about everyone to create, but Nubook is aimed specifically at so-called creatives — “designers, photographers, architects, artists, actors, stylists, collectors” — who don’t have the skills to code a page or manage a server. In my limited playing around with it, Nubook does in fact seem quite easy, and loaded with exceedingly elegant templates (which is what you’d expect when one of the key folks behind it is Thomas Brodahl). More to the point, the service is focused on presentations, and is not meant to be a traditional host for fully-fledged Web sites or blogs in the traditional sense. That limited focus is a potentially meaningful distinction; I think it’s really smart. Give it a spin at Nubook.com.
