chi.mp Sponsors Twiistup 5, Showcases Beta-Version Upgrades Including Blogs, Photos and Themes

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - February 12, 2009) - chi.mp, the Internet's first content hub and identity management platform that sits on your own domain, will sponsor Twiistup 5, February 12, at the Santa Monica Airport, Hanger 8. Twiistup, Southern California's signature event connecting professionals from the worlds of technology, media and entertainment, features companies chosen to show off their products to press, investors and bloggers. This year, chi.mp will present several new features in the ramp up to its launch, scheduled for March 2009.

What is chi.mp? chi.mp, the next evolution in social network platforms, gives 'owners' their own domain and unique, hosted Web site for free. A flexible home for their online identity, owners connect with several groups of people in their lives through their site. chi.mp serves as a social hub where owners can aggregate, share and publish content and contacts from across the social Web in the first truly open and interoperable social network.

The latest features enable owners to assume different personas for their work contacts, family and friends, and set different themes for each of those personas. New photo album and blog editor features improve owners' experiences with other blog sites and photo-sharing destinations like Flickr, but enable absolute privacy; an owner might post certain photos to their own .mp site that they don't want made public via Flickr, for example.

"We're excited to share the latest chi.mp tools with Twiistup attendees as we lead up to our launch," said Rob Farrow, co-founder and CMO of chi.mp. "We're fulfilling our promise of becoming a social media hub, making the Web more useful and giving owners control over their own content."

"chi.mp has played a large role at Twiistup in the past and we're glad for their continued support," said Twiistup founder Mike Macadaan. "Twiistup is all about hot technology and innovation, and chi.mp is a great example of a company facilitating evolution of the way we use the Web to innovate and network for ourselves. We're looking forward to another fun event this year, highlighting new technology and helping spread the word about services like chi.mp."
