Big day at Swoosh

we came, we launched, we didn’t sleep,

Our new site is where the old one used to be:

Let me know what you guys think.  We’re still getting feedback and tweaking as we go.  We made a strategic decision to go with BR vs. PR, and wow the payoff was huge.  I couldn’t list here all of the blogs that gave the Swoosh some love, but here’s a smattering of a few interesting ones:

Robert Scoble with a vision for vlogging at Scobleizer

Arrington with the full scoop at TechCrunch  

Matt Marshall with the finance tip at SiliconBeat

We were rockstars on Digg for the day making it to the TOP of the home page. Digg is a top 100 site that gets more traffic than the NYTimes -  400+ diggs today!

It’s a wild west world out there in the blogosphere. Everybody comes out of the woodwork and it’s on the record.

Now it’s back to the work of getting web developers to Swoosh those links

The whole thing about Digg getting more traffic than the NYT isn’t true:

But I think what counted in your case was the quality of traffic. Digg users are way more likely to try Redswoosh than NYT readers …

Hey Travis,

Fine work hee.

Before I install tho, does this software have an user interface? How do I know when, what and how much i’m uploading?

Thanks, Rob

Hey rob, . . .thanks for the props

regarding control panel type functionality, you can go here:

We have a release we’re just trickling out right now that has control panel functionality within the Start Menu Control Panel.. . . stay tuned on that

regarding UI, Red Swoosh stays out of the UI business, we see that as functionality that websites and folks who use our technology can provide for their users.

P.S. - Rob, great work on the bird
