Feedery.com Is it real or is it Fossfor.us?
Is/Will Geeknet's GKNT November 16th Feedery.com announcement A Recommendation Engine That Tailors News To Individuals be another Fossfor.us *? Note: Geeknet's Fossfor.us now ranked 1,516,820 by Alexa.com.
First take on Feedery.com.
1. Potentially superior product, incl/esp for iPad...but currently cannot scroll on iPhone??? This [should] be HUGE and hugely accretive to GKNT's market capitalization viz-a-viz current hot startups in New York and Silicon Valley, but.....
2. 3 syllables and > 4 letters ??? Pulse, Digg, Reddit, Google, Bing, Facebook, twitter, feedery...#fail
3. Type Font used for logo - not immediately compelling/exciting....perception is reality, of which, the competition, media, and ultimately the consumer relentlessly, irreversibly, and formidably drive to the bottom-line. pulse or Feedery?...
4. Why hasn't anyone picked up on this release? Are TechCrunch et al only interested in protecting/promoting Angel investments?
5. Conversely why isn't Geeknet promoting it? Is Scott Collison going to tuurn this into another Ohloh, or fossfor.us?
* GKNT's (fka SourceForge) then CEO slipped out their fossfor.us next generation product in their Q2 ending 2009 conference call in February 2009.
