It’s a very exciting night over at Xobni. We just pulled the trigger on the Xobni public beta launch. This coincided with a great article hitting NYTimes.com announcing the Xobni launch:
Of course the Microsoft Yahoo fallout is stealing some of our thunder, but it’s still amazing for a 14-person company to get our launch covered in the New York Times. Huge kudos to Sutherland Gold for getting us the New York Times (Jeff Bonforte was right – they are awesome).
The biggest credit goes to Matt and Adam for founding a great company and the rest of the engineers for executing an awesome product. We still have a lot of work to do, but we’ve had an amazing private beta with very passionate and helpful users.
On the marketing side, Xobni already kicked up a lot of interest before I arrived. My goal has been to ensure that we harvest this interest and build on the great momentum. Now that we’re publicly available for anyone to download, we should really be able to optimize conversions.
I expect great things from Xobni and I’m proud to be part of this incredible team.
