sketchcast.jpgWhile many of use would be happy with a No. 2 pencil and a blank sheet of paper, it just wasn’t good enough for Richard Ziade who decided to make it possible, and might I add easy, to do it online. eliminates that old pencil case and allows you to create and share sketches online within minutes. You can embed it on your website (see blow) or send a link in an email. You can also grab someone’s RSS feed and stay up to date on their sketches.

While it’s going to be easier to use with a tablet it’s got a lot of quick, fun uses. Sketch a note to the kids, sketch your thoughts to a loved one, etc. I’d like to see them add private areas and a way to add to sketches or mark-ups. In the meantime, it’s a cool way to get a quick sketch to someone.
