Circular blogging at Blue Dot

I’m at the hot company of the day, Blue Dot. They just got written up on TechCrunch (Mike Arrington has been telling friends that he’s using Blue Dot instead of Del.icio.us). I just met the entire company (10 people) and they have a cool way to share Web sites with your friends. This is the next Digg. Instead of sharing stuff with the world, you can share with groups. Sounds lame here in text land, but when you see the video demo it all will make sense.

Anyway, here’s some exclusive news. They just told me about their mobile service. Go to bluedot.us/m and you can get to your Blue Dot groups from your mobile phone. Doesn’t always work on every phone, but if it does it’s very cool.

Today was absolutely incredible. Zune, Microsoft Research were both excellent videos. Research showed me something that just blew my mind. But you gotta see it on video. I’ll let you know when that’s up.

More on Zune later, but I’m just running my ass off. Gotta go get ready for the Woz interview. Hope you’re having a good Friday.

  1. Blue Dot looks interesting but lacks the highlighting/noting features of Diigo and Activeweave Stickis that really make this kind of service powerful.

  3. Thanks for coming in to Blue Dot today, Robert – it was great meeting you. Like I told you in the office, Channel 9 was probably the best “PR” Microsoft has come up with in a long time. Getting real stories from real people – unfiltered – is a great way to make companies personal. Microsoft seems less like the “evil empire” and more like a collection of smart motivated people trying to change the world. I’m excited to see the video when you post it.

  5. I’ve been using Blue Dot for awhile now and I really wish there was a dot notification feature. Something similar to Outlook when you’ve got new email. That quick little piece that says hey, you’re friend just dotted something about cars… then I’d go and check it out.

  7. Aah – Blue Dot – all the signs of the next $1.65 billion corporate chow down.

    A social media virgin who doesn’t consider being on MySpace as “real” social media, I am loving Blue Dot simply because of the chick that I am. Easy to use, pretty font and backgrounds, no need to be all caught up in the game and SO useful.

    It feels like refreshing mint iced tea on a hot summer day compared to the sardine can that is MySpace. I LOVE IT!!
