Cool is as cool does

Two of our early products, reader and myfavorites (both still in prerelease) were found by some of the new media thought leaders who pondered when-did-earthlink-get-so-cool…. It is one thing to get an endorsement from a random journalist who only understands rss after you give them 4 or 5 examples, stop and explain it again as a new ticker, it all together another story to get nods from people the team respects and reads on a daily basis. The week just kept getting better and Michael also reviewed our photo and web storage product called Weblife.So what does this have to do with me and my year away from Earthlink. I am not sure why but this gave me an easy feeling that the work we have been doing has been right and the future roadmaps will be good and all the great people who have been working on this stuff will continue to do innovative things while I am away.
