  1. Om — thanks for posting this. Nice to know I’m every bit as much as a dork as I fear.

    I’d also like to make sure that First Round Capital is mentioned as an investor. Josh and Rob have been invaluable partners to us (as have Foundry and SoftTech) and they have our deepest thanks.

  2. i think eric/gnip are on the right track. in a few years, tweetfeeds and the new new news of every kind has to be glued together at the backend of every major web operation that caters to consumers. a good analog may be how financial/trading networks behave where you can’t have every trading outfit ‘pinging’ to check prices/status etc.
