Fast Company has an interview with the founders of Animoto.  I love their application.  As an early user I appreciated the fact that they were very responsive to my emails.

Update: How on the ball are these folks? I just got an email from them thanking me for my comments. They follow Google Alerts to see what’s being said. Very clever.

I created this website last night for finding good quality creative commons and free license photos: FreeBlogPhotos.com. I thought I’d give it a try with ScribeFire, my favorite Firefox browser based blogging tool.

My iPhoneTrick.com experience


September 6th, 2008

I created a fun site for playing gags on the iPhone. I told a few people and then created a YouTube video about the site. Then I forgot about it. Then my site started crashing. 200,000 + views and visitors later it’s still going. If only I’d figured out a way to make money off the thing…

Contestmachine.com promises to make it easier to run online contests by handling all the small details. I haven’t tried them yet, but this looks like it might make a useful service for iTricks.com.

This is a cool site that’s time has come. They provide you with free images (not public domain) to use as embeds in your blog site: http://www.picapp.com
