How MapQuest Saved Christmas
by Daniel H. Steinberg
One of the great things about working for O'Reilly's Online Publication Group is that we seem to be continually experimenting and trying new things. Do you remember in the early days of the web when people used to put up those Under Construction icons? You don't seem them anymore because everyone knows that the nature of the web is that it is under construction.
This year I've been fortunate to be involved with the launch of our audio efforts. Thank you for your comments about our podcast Distributing the Future and our stream of features of O'Reilly folks and friends that we present in our FOO Casts. We have other ideas for audio that we'll feature on our podcasts page as well as elsewhere that we'll share with you in 2006. As always, drop us an email with your comments.
Thanks to Terrie Miller for helping me post this during the Christmas weekend.
Thanks for Sharing
That’s a sweet story, Daniel—and tastefully presented. I’d enjoy hearing more short, anecdotal podcasts. Any suggestions? One-Minute Vacation (www.quietamerican.org/vacation.html) is another nice step in that direction. —David
I click the Post A Comment button and before I can write the "nice story, blah blah blah" followup I'd intended, my 21 month-old daughter comes zooming into my home office.
