Hmmm, the Sphere/Automattic guys are doing a little experiment on my blog (with my permission). I’m not getting paid for this and I’m not seeing any advertising revenue for this. I just wanted to try it out, and see what my readers think. If you all hate it, we’ll remove it. If you like it, we’ll see if we can improve it. It has a link to FM Media, which is cool. They are a great advertising distribution network. But if they stay, I will change that to a PodTech sponsor link.
Anyway, check out the little Sphere links underneath each post.
What do you think?
UPDATE: so far I’m not very impressed. On the Riya story, for instance, that got tons of links and other things to and from it doesn’t pull up anything relevant. Hopefully that can be fixed over time and these will get more useful. I’ll leave these up for at least a week to see if they get more utility over time. If they don’t, they are gonna be gone anyway. I don’t like visual clutter that doesn’t add real utility.
