Google buys Measure Map

15/02/2006 @ 01:08 UTC

Andy Baio : Google buys Measure Map - congrats, Jeff and the Adaptive Path crew!

Jeremy Zawodny : Here comes Measure Map - Here comes Measure Map: google bought measure map... saw that coming a mile away

Douglas Bowman : Google > Measure Map - Congratulations to Jeff Veen and the entire Adaptive Path team that worked on Measure Map. Here's to even better things ahead.

Jason Shellen : Official Google Blog: Here comes Measure Map - Google picks up Measure Map plus co-creator Jeff Veen and crew. Glad to have the deal all sewn up. #

kellan : MeasureMap goes to Google, which means Ruby at Google! - Beginning of a trend? (I'd say this will fix the MeasureMap scalability probs, except G hasn't fixed the ones with Gurchin yet) #

jkottke : Google buys Measure Map, Jeff Veen leaves Adaptive Path to work at Google - Google buys Measure Map, Jeff Veen leaves Adaptive Path to work at Google.

plasticbag : It's official! Google buys Measuremap! - I've chatted to Veen a few times over the last few months but still this is a surprise. It's a lovely piece of work, which I imagine will fit Blogger very well. And I'm looking forward to hearing about Google's culture and swapping notes...

Linkorama : Here comes Measure Map - Bought by Google, congrats AP!

jimray : Official Google Blog: Here comes Measure Map - Jeff Veen joins Google, as does Measure Map

Nelson Minar : Jeff Veen to Google - Good for him

kayodeok : Official Google Blog: Here comes Measure Map - Our goal has been to use the power of web analytics to help bloggers feel that same sense of connection with their audience.

Ning.com goes live!

4/10/2005 @ 09:55 UTC

Andy Baio : Ning.com goes live! - 24 Hour Laundry's stealthy startup is an oddball social software playground; mind blowing geek cool

philgyford : Ning | Developer : Home - New site that makes it easy to create your own social software apps, from the secretive 24 Hour Laundry. (I did most of the HTML/CSS.)

jkottke : Ning, a social software playground - Ning is a platform on which you can build your own social software...your own craigslist or del.icio.us. We were just talking about something like this the other day at Eyebeam, a MMORPG in which you write applications to adventure together or fight each [via]

kayodeok : Ning - Ning is a free online service (or, as we like to call it, a Playground) for building and using social applications.

znarf : Ning - Semble impressionnant [via#

François Nonnenmacher : Ning - Ning (formerly known as 24 Hour Laundry) is a free online service (a Playground) for people to build and run social applications

Linkorama : Ning - Ning is a free online service (or, as we like to call it, a Playground) for building and using social applications.

erikbenson : Ning: create your own social network site - At first glance, pretty interesting! Having trouble logging in but I assume that'll be fixed soon.

Rod Begbie : Ning "Playground" - At the risk of sounding a bit "Less space than a nomad. Lame", can anyone explain to me what's so exciting about a service that lets you build hosted not-quite-as-good-as-existing social apps? [via#

cobra libre : ning - a "playground" (that is, "a field or sphere of unrestricted pleasurable activity") for "social applications" (i.e., "web apps made up of code and content that enable people to match, transact, and communicate with one another") #

Simon Willison : Ning - A social software app for building social software apps. That's so meta.

Paul Hammond : Ning | Home: Front Page - Ning is a free online service (or, as we like to call it, a Playground) for building and using social applications.

plasticbag : I remain totally weirded out by Ning, even after their relaunch as a roll your own social network service - I honestly have no idea why anyone would want this, and it makes me sad because I feel like I'm missing something quite profound. The benefit surely would be in overlapping social networks? In values in scale? I'm totally lost.

Linkorama : Google Moon - Honestly, if you are going to visit a fairly large moon, why would you keep going to the same place? What is this, Lunar Vegas?

A well-written essay on a topic that ends up being pretty obvious

Erik Benson : A well-written essay on a topic that ends up being pretty obvious - I do like all the Microsoft history folklore that's included
