Every day there is something new to look at, something new to try, and somewhere new to post stuff. In the past two weeks I have signed up for at least 15 new social networking services, covering everything from blog formats, posting sites, linksharing sites, twitter clients, twitter add-ons, twitter look-a-likes and more.
One thing that sticks out for me is how hard it is to make noise about new services, and how hard it is to get people to notice something. Even if they do, what are the chances they will stick around.
I'm sure every one of these start-ups has at least one board member or marketing guy (wait, that's me) like the guy in the video below who wants more noise, more attention and more fanfare when things launch, but I wonder when it all becomes such a symphony of cacophony that we recognize it as a tune. And the tune goes like this - hey, people, do whatever. It's all good. Maybe not yet.
Bring on the trumpets.
