News about news

This is a self-referential posting.

I wanted to mention a few interesting things that have happened in the press and related.

First of all, just a few weeks ago Rafe Needleman published a nice writeup on Experience Project over at CNET.

Following that, we issued our launch press release.

Today, we realized we were mentioned in VentureBeat.

And today, one of the stories on our site (I'm not even going to link to it because it's got enough love already) ended up on the front page of Digg. Last I checked, it had nearly 800 diggs. Needless to say, this brought Experience Project to a grind. We took it offline as a preventative measure until the whirlwind blew over a bit. And yes, calls were made and servers were acquired in the meanwhile. Next time, I want Experience Project to face a Digg onslaught with a smug, 'what else do you got?' instead of an, 'is this over yet?!?'

A giant welcome to the many new folks in our community. We are so happy to have you with us, and as always, feel free to send us a line to let us know what we can do better. If we like what you have to say, don't be surprised when you see your suggestion enacted in less than 48 hours... ;)
