Ether launches tonight

etherlogoTechCrunch announced the launch of “Super-Stealth” Ether.com tonight. A service that allows the private consultant in us all to have a mode for charging for our phone time. Sounds like a pretty cool idea. As Ben points out in techcrunches comments, it’s been tried before with keen.com and oddly enough, some of the elements of the ether.com website are actually hosted on the keen.com servers. Perhaps it is keen regurgitated and tweaked? Why not just make changes to the original? What value in a relaunch?

TDavid found a few errors in the sign-up system but notes that the 15% cut that they take isn’t as steep as similar services and Scoble seems to be overly ecstatic about the launch.

Keep an eye out for a ether box to appear on thatedeguy and possibly here as I signed up for the beta and I just might give it a try.
