Yes, you are dead on.

They have always taken great pride, and rightly so, in being a company that has mastered the distributed web.

I am not sure it is a matter of losing the hub as much as they lost their mojo after selling out to Yahoo. Twitter doesnt seem to have much of a hub yet this hasn't stopped their momentum.

MyBlogLog had a ton of momentum and the sale stymied their initiative. Their community gave them a fairly large grace period as they had built up a ton of well deserved goodwill.

It appears that their grace period has almost run its course. Once lost it is difficult to regain. See Yahoo for the perfect example of this.

I would agree with you, except Yahoo has historically been pretty good about not messing with the startups that they buy. Delicous, Upcoming, and Flickr have all seemed to be left pretty much to their own devices. Then again, Bradley Horowitz used to be one of the real champions of keeping bought startups in startup mode - maybe that's changing now that he's gone. Yahoo is certainly a company under tremendous pressure to do a better job monetizing - perhaps this is the driver.

wow, loved reading this.

keep up the good work :)

Some time ago, I did need to buy a good house for my corporation but I did not have enough cash and couldn't purchase something. Thank goodness my mate suggested to get the business loans at trustworthy creditors. Therefore, I acted so and was satisfied with my small business loan.

I think this is a great post. One thing that I find the most helpful is number five. Sometimes when I write, I just let the flow of the words and information come out so much that I loose the purpose. It’s only after editing when I realize what I’ve done. There’s defiantly a lot of great tips here I’m going to try to be more aware of.

A good amount of time I find myself chucking a long, which is a perfect way to start Columbia 2011 my morning and Mens Columbia Interchange Jacket a great way to unwind at the end of the day.
