AnswerTips gets a warm welcome out the gate

Just as the holiday weekend was gearing up, an article praising the technology and functionality of AnswerTips appeared in a well known blog, CleverClogs. Jay B., who first sent word of this story out, wrote:

I first noticed this beautifully written blog entry (well, of course it’s about us) and was delighted to see a blogger getting excited about AnswerTips…even before we launched it as an offering on the site. But even more exciting — Gil and Michal are now officially Technorati tags! What’s also nice is that this is a serious blogger; Google page rank of 4, which is rare for a blog. As soon as we get this page up there, Liz will be spending a lot of time getting people like this hooked on AnswerTips…

Poynter Online, a web resource for journalists, even pointed reporters toward for information on a foiled assassination attempt on former president Gerald Ford. Some album information on the “Hardest Working Man in Show Business” appeared on Ochblog.


AP writer Jake Coyle wrote a story about the Whimsical and Weird Websites of 2006. blufr made the cut. The story has been reprinted in Austin 360 and The Lexington Herald.

Blufr also made another list this week. Bob Stumpel put together a list of games he feels are going to be part of the Web 3.0 phenomenon, and blufr ranked again.

Hope you all enjoy your New Year’s celebration.
