Just about a year ago Jason Shellen and I started Plinky. A lot happens in a year. Jason and team built a very cool product that eliminated much of the pain associated with staring at the blank text box of your blog editor wondering “What am I going to write about?” Plinky is doing well but the mission of the company has expanded into helping people participate more easily in the conversation Web, which is, well, the fabric of conversations on the social Web. So, yes, it means we are doing something that now also puts Twitter in the picture.
The new name is Thing Labs. What else is new? New address in San Francisco and the addition of Chris Wetherell (co-founder of Google Reader with Jason) and the tech he’s been quietly building. Lots going on. Follow the company on Twitter to stay in the loop.
