Even though this post from TC is rather rosy, and the response over at CenterNetworks is a little harsh, I’m going to come down right in the middle here and say that texty has a fighting chance … albeit a very small one.

The idea of creating content and being able to embed and manage it using a central system is very interesting. But as CN points out, many lame platforms like MySpace won’t allow embeddable code and as more old media invests in new media we might see that trend increase. If you avoid the MySpace like you should, then texty could work for you and the popularity of embeddable widgets is booming right now.

Texty is a dead simple but useful new internet service that you can use to quickly create and edit content on a web page with zero HTML or programming skills.

Go to the site, start typing text in a WYSIWYG editor, format it and add images. Click a button and get an embed code. Your text will appear in whatever website you add the code to. And if you want to make changes, go back to Texty and edit it. The changes will flow to whatever sites you’ve embedded it on. You can also add comment functionality to a piece of text, and create a RSS feed.
