So today we’ve started 2008, which we believe will be a great year for Dapper, with bangs and whistles. First Wired Magazine ran a big story on the art and science of scraping, that also mentioned Dapper. Though the reporter tried to show both sides of the penny, it clearly drove home the point that opening up the web’s content can cultivate a great boom of creativity and new apps, something we’ve been advocating from day 1.
Then, good old Marshall Kirkpatrick from ReadWriteWeb picked up on the story writing a great review on Dapper as the proponent of the web unlocking paradigm. He even went as far as recording a magnificent screencast on how he uses Dapper to create an RSS feed for del.icio.us RRW mentions. Marshall, thanks for the warm words and the great screencast, this kind of feedback is the greatest fuel in our engines.
BTW, Marshall also encourages you to join us at DapperCamp – Dapper’s first users/developers conference. I’ll join him in the invite – this is going to be two great days in February.
We had a great 2007 and we’re planning an even greater 2008 – brace yourself 🙂
