Also, founding partner of Brandient. Hello and welcome to Kitblog.
I am Cristian Kit Paul on Facebook. Here's my RSS feed. Search:

This reads like a novel.
Ages ago, at the dawn of blogging (circa 2005), Antipixel was on my daily reading list. Its intro still rings a bell:
Hello. This is Jeremy Hedley's weblog coming to you sort of live from Tokyo, Japan. Gory details are available, as is my public key.
"Sort of live from Tokyo, Japan"—how cool is that! The pictures were awesome, the stories exotic and the design a benchmark at the time.
Tr.im is now in the process of discontinuing service, effective immediately: "There is no way for us to monetize URL shortening -- users won't pay for it."
"No business we approached wanted to purchase tr.im for even a minor amount."
"With the usual exceptions, people on Twitter tend to fall into two main camps. There are responders, who use Twitter as a channel to interact heavily with other users, and broadcasters, who use it primarily as a micro-blogging platform.
These groups don’t necessarily get along. Responders will tell you that broadcasters are condescending talking heads who think they’re too good for the community. Broadcasters wish responders would take their nonsensical patter to a chat room, where they could natter on in privacy. Everyone agrees that members of the other group are total jackasses who don’t know how to use Twitter."
From Margaret Mason’s Twitter Etiquette Article.
It's a complicated world out there, folks!
As all hell broke loose after launch, and Sitemeter immediately rolled back to their old design. Good!
But from their apology though — "we have pushed our new site live prematurely" and "we apologize for the botched rollout" — it's easy to tell: they still don't get it.
It's not the rollout (it was painless) or performance (come on!). It's about the fact that the new site is terribly, terribly designed.
