Interesting comments were left about the "quiet launch" of Crossfader. What's a "quiet launch?" It's a tease. A seduction. What's interesting is to watch the reactions. Oh, and the spreading of the meme. 24 hours ago there wasn't a single link to this URL. No traffic.
Watch the meme spread on Technorati.
Oh, and "peeblo" you might check the site again. There's an RSS feed now.
Whew, I thought I was gonna have to "fire" another team. ;-O
One last thing: you all are smart. It really is amazing to see you all work together to try to figure something out.
Vic Gundotra (my boss's boss) was raving today about a travel app from Southwest Airlines. It's called "Ding" and that's exactly what it does. When it dings you have a few hours to get an outrageous deal on travel. It bings for other reasons too.
Hey, Maryam, check this one out! (We fly Southwest, so this'll end up saving us some big bucks).
Update: Jim Flowers says this site isn't new and that Georgia has had a traffic site since the Olympics.
Optimal Desktop is a browser based on Internet Explorer. Really interesting. Adds tabs. And now has desktop search built in and has nice RSS and OPML support.
Worth checking out.
I totally agree with Blake Ross (one of the guys who worked on Firefox). He says: "If you are trying to display a popup ad to someone who doesn’t want one, you won’t be around in two years."
By the way, congrats to Blake for getting funding for a new company. That's what Om Malik is reporting.
Congrats Mike Gunderloy on making your blog a full-time thing. For those who don't know, Mike has a great developer-centric blog. Mostly a link blog kind of thing, but he's promising a lot more content now.
