I’ve got some follow up news regarding a few different apps were mentioned previously at Matt’s Cuppa. To begin with, and to my disappointment, I was not chosen to be an Utterz Ambassador, despite submitting my story about the flack I get from certain family members about my Bessie t-shirt.
Even though I was overlooked, (For good reason. Those that were picked are long-time contributors to the Utterz community and will now be given even more of an opportunity to influence the direction of Utterz going forward. Congrats Ambassadors!) I will continue to say great things about Utterz and, like my post title states, I’ll always be an Ambassador in my own mind!
In the meantime, the guys from BooRah are kind enough to keep me informed about new developments on their end. I’ve described BooRah as a restaurant information aggregator, but they are quickly expanding beyond my simplified definition. In a recent email, Nagaraju Bandaru, BooRah’s co-founder and CTO, explained a partnership with BookingAngel that will allow online reservation to some 30,000 restaurants, as well as OpenID support. (<- Good move guys!)
And my last bit of news is that Molly over at Demo Girl came through with an Orgoo invite for me. I’ve already got my tea (an apricot oolong) picked out and a little space cleaned up in the sun on our patio, and I’ll be playing with (er, testing) that this afternoon. Molly, you rock!
Ah, yes, and I’m using this post to play around a little more with Apture, so hover over and click on a few of the links in this post and tell me what you think of Apture vs. traditional hyperlinking.
