Just a quick note – hats off to the guys at Joost.
Not so much because it would be the best running thing with streaming media over the internet or anything like that (because it’s not, even though it IS quite nifty and nice).
Nah, hats off because they manage to do it all over again. With Skype, their last venture, the buzz and the hype was building on itself, a prime example of viral marketing. With Joost, they’ve managed to do it again. Lots of people are talking about Joost, lots of people are writing about it, lots of people know someone who is betatesting it and have heard good things about it… and the hype keeps on growing.
With Skype, we customers got a wonderful communicating tool, and the guys at Skype got billions of dollars for it. Win-win-situation, no? Hope the same goes for Joost 🙂
