Fantastic growth for Daylife

Daylife has been making fantastic progress growing its traffic rank and pages views on Alexa.

It wasn't immediately obvious to many people how powerful Daylife was in terms of presenting a new way for readers to experience the news and for publishers to tap into an awesome
and flexible platform for extending their inventory -- but the extremely talented team has done a great job and the results are starting to be plain for all to see.

Not only are the numbers starting to speak for themselves but the creativity among both developers and partners that Daylife has unleashed is starting to look truly impressive.

Long live news :)

Seedcamp application zeitgeist

Fabulous tagcloud analysis of Seedcamp applications from our esteemed fellow, Mr Orland :) Check it out and good luck to everyone who applied...

We thought it might be interesting to take the several hundred applications we received and look for some aggregate patterns, so I grabbed the answers to some of the more relevant questions and (after a little sed manipulation to strip HTML and make sure no confidential application info slipped through) fed them to Jonathan Feinberg's excellent Wordle. The results are below. It's a little dirty (e.g. I wish "open" and "source" were one phrase) but even without too much manual polish it should be a good indicator. Enjoy - and be sure to click through for the full size images.Morland, seedcamp: 2008 application zeitgeist, Aug 2008
