Online Aspect : A few words about EventVue - http://www.onlineaspect.com/2010...
"Things that worked well -- attendees loved our product. We did a good job at keeping the product simple and we used lots of tricks to auto-import their picture and bio from facebook, twitter, linkedin, gravitar, etc. That part worked well. Including faces in emails worked well for driving engagement. We tracked who got clicked on the most frequently and used their faces (ie. hot girls & VCs') in our emails. Every event organizer has an ongoing nightmare that no one will show up their event. If you promise them a way to sell more tickets (especially early) you'll grab their attention. The domains are for sale -- we have eventvue.com & vue.me. Contact me offline if you're interested." - Josh Fraser

I'm always torn when I read things like this. I tend to be pro-innovation and take the approach that if you don't take advantage of technology, someone else will. But when I read things like this I can't help but wonder where all those people will go. What will their next job be? - Josh Fraser

"I think the value proposition is strong. People who say you should optimize your website once instead of using a service may be forgetting that browsers and mobile devices are constantly changing. New optimizations are being developed all the time. Using a hosted service lets you take advantage of those new developments without having to do anything. Performance optimization tends to be the last item on developers to-do list and often gets put off for higher priority issues. At Torbit, we often hear people say "we know we could/should optimize our site but just haven't gotten around to it yet". Torbit offers a similar value proposition as Site Speed Service but we focus on customers who need a more robust solution and a company that is accessible when it comes to support. As a higher-end competitor to Google service, I'm excited to see them validate what we're doing. It will be up to customers to decide whether they want to trust Google with their data. Regardless, the idea of..." - Josh Fraser

"At Torbit we're doing the detection server-side (using UserAgent) and are serving up unique URL's for each size of the image.  That way we don't need to worry about proxies caching the wrong size or trying to change any specs.  It has worked well so far." - Josh Fraser

Re: Scripting News: Why Google cares if you use your real name - http://www.disqus.com/people...
"Names actually make for pretty terrible primary keys.  Emails work way better & they already have those. I'm not saying Google doesn't make tons of other decisions based on the $$$, but in this case I think they really are just trying to cut down on the amount of douchebaggery. Take a look at 4chan and see what happens when you anonymity reigns." - Josh Fraser
