I was listening to Craig Newmark on Neville Hobson and Shel Holtz’s “For Immediate Release” earlier in the week and was pleased to hear Neville ask Craig about edgeio. Here is Craig’s response: MP3
After listening I decided to record my response to Craig’s response – here it is : MP3
I sent this to Neville so maybe he will include it in his show.
Let us know what your opinions are.
There is a lot happening here at edgeio, I will post news soon.
edgeio has a number of product releases due to happen over the next 2 weeks or so. As we discussed in a couple of places, edgeio was launched with a set of features specifically designed for bloggers who are familiar with tagging, and with ping servers. Some have said (correctly) that this is too narrow an audience for a listings network. We think that the amount of discussion about edgeio has justified our early focus on this audience, but we are almost ready to roll out features for bloggers who are less familiar with the technology, and also for non-bloggers. CrunchNotes points to a podcast where Brian Oberkirck interviews Mike Arrington and they discuss some of these plans. They also discuss spam control. The podcast is here.
