Bookadoodle is now live – yay! Mar 4 2006
Well, I finally got the new WordPress theme for Bookadoodle finished and uploaded. The rooster logo was designed by Sara who also suggested the fun name and encouraged us to build out the concept. Content-wise, it is still a young blog, but, uh, check out the cool roundy corners! Yay! 🙂
Books are great. We love books. This site is for you if you love books … reading books, writing books, or just sharing your latest favorite reads.
I’ve been using vSocial more and more lately to watch clips and my main man Shanti recently got a chance for a full-blown interview and posted it over on Ajax Blog. You should definitely check it out since they’ve been scaling massively lately and you can watch cool videos on their site.
We wanted to pick the brains of the vSocial founding team and learn about: starting a new social networking site, building a large-scale, high-bandwidth web app, developing with Ajax, building traffic/buzz, life hacks, and more.
The numbers speak for themselves: vSocial has gone from 0 to 71M monthly page views, 270K unique daily visitors and 45M videos served a month … all in about 120 days!
Brad Webb and Mark Sigal of vSocial were kind enough to sit down with Ajax Blog for the following interview. Enjoy!
Can you describe how the company or concept behind vSocial.com came about?
The core platform behind vSocial was developed over the past three years (with vSocial’s other co-founder, Brent Oesterblad) as part of a general purpose social media platform for uploading and sharing pictures, music, movies and other rich media content items. Looking at the market mid-last year, it was clear that Internet video was about to hit in a big way, and we felt that we had a lot of “secret sauce” to bring to the equation so we opted to focus there. The underlying platform is quite feature rich, and we expect to roll more of it out into the market in the coming months.

Niner Niner is ranked #39 out of 64 blog networks. We have 223 writers and a platform that is flexible and has scaled really well so far, based on a bunch of custom PHP scripts and the ever so awesome WordPress platform.
Kind of neat to see that someone thinks that it’s worth $217,386.00. How they came up with that number exactly, I’m not sure. But cool nonetheless.

Where does this value number come from anyways?
The current blog “value” amount is based on work done earlier by the Business Opportunities Weblog and Tristian Louis. The numbers are based on a valuation of the Weblogs, Inc. acquisition by AOL. We don’t put much weight in it, but it’s fun to play with.

Why Firefox? Reason #1
Gabriel says: Using Firefox is like drinking water after wandering the desert for 40 years. Except that it is a web browser, and it’s been available for some time now. 🙂
