BlackBerry Curve vs BlackBerry 8830

AffSpot Affiliate Forum

Wow. What a crazy week already.

Along with Aunesty Janssen, Billy Kay, Ron Bechdolt and Kellie Stevens, I helped launch a new affiliate marketing forum called AffSpot.

After the launch yesterday, there are already 75 members, 99 threads, over 300 posts, coverage by Shawn Collins and Wade Tonkin and a lot of buzz in the industry.

I’m really excited to be on board AffSpot and can’t wait to see how it grows over the coming years.

AffSpot Forum Is Live

So, AffSpot (the new affiliate marketing forum I’ve been working on) is live:

Shawn Collins also has coverage of the launch.

Come join us (lots of people signing up already)!

I’ve been on “vacation” the last few weeks here (and in reality I’m at Lake Keowee with Anna’s family this week), but I’ll be blogging here more often starting next week.

Twitter Search and Summize Acquisition


Twitter has taken another step to finally put down the great FailWhale of ’08 by acquiring the real time search service Summize:

Twitter Search
We’re excited to announce that Twitter has acquired Summize—an extraordinary search tool and an amazing group of engineers. All five Summize engineers will move to San Francisco, CA and take jobs at Twitter, Inc. This is an important step forward in the evolution of Twitter as a service and as a company.

Since Twitter’s track functionality has been down, I’ve been a heavy user of Summize (and recommend you do the same through the new interface).

Here’s to keeping things back on Track on Twitter…
