Netomat has announced a beta release of its new personal multimedia communication service for both Mac and PC. According to the company, the service allows you to “create and publish or send multimedia Web sites, emails and blogs using any combination of digital pictures, audio, voice, text, free-form drawing and animation — all in just a few minutes.” Netomat is built on open standards, formats and protocols so viewers of netomat-based communication do not have to download the application or any proprietary plug-ins to interact. However, the core underlying techonology in the Netomat service is a new XML-based language called NML (Netomatic Mark-up Language).
