Now that Pulse is officially out, I decided to “spam” my Plaxo members. I don’t know if it’s really spam since these are only the people already on Plaxo and I had to add them each individually (I wish there was a bulk function.)
[About Plaxo and Lunch 2.0 after the jump]
My Pulsing spam
Here is the spam:
(No, I don’t work at Plaxo anymore. But I know people who do if you want to set up a Pulse integration point. or you can talk to Plaxo personally as to why the site is slow at Lunch 2.0 next week at Plaxo’s new headquarters in Mountain View. And say hi to me also, I’ll be there, of course.)
A little bit about Lunch 2.0
A few people e-mailed me or messaged me about Pulse. I knew about it. In fact, Lunch 2.0 had the scoop on Pulse. Dave said, “Lunch 2.0, Plaxo, Scoble and CNET all in one article.”
Not bad for a free lunch, huh? 😀
Future Lunch 2.0’s:
- 8/8 AOL, Mountain View, Silicon Valley
- 8/9 Powerset, SOMA, San Francisco
- 8/15 Plaxo, Mountain View, Silicon Valley
More in San Francisco and the Bay Area, and Seattle, Germany, and Los Angeles (and beyond)?
I wish that I could bulk connect to my Plaxo friends. That was an hour I’d never get back.
Finally, Digg is halfway useful to me.
Small UI thing: It’d be nice to see the count of how many people in each network I have. This way I know what a contact whore I am.
Plaxo needs to publish the API. What’s the point of “Share a message, link, or video” if you can’t publish via client? It’d be nice if they had an API where third party application developers could hook up feeds to Plaxo.
Speaking of which. Mobile push, bitches! Me want.
It’d be nice if I could train it what the interesting stuff is. My Pulse is starting to get overwhelmed already.
