Trial and Error

Get Your Joost Invite Here!

May 30, 2007 11:16 AM

You know the saying “the squeaky wheel gets the grease?”

Well, it’s true.

After several blog posts, Joost has heard my plaintive cries.

The company finally responded, reaching out not only with VIP tech support (begrudgingly I must admit the tech support, though a bit complicated, actually worked) but also an offer of invitations for the service to post here on this blog.

So here you go, fair readers! I proffer you invitations for Joost. Just click on the link http://www.joost.com/presents/television-week/ and come kick the tires on the beta test.

But don’t forget to come back and let me know what you think.

Oh, and one more thing. Just because I am hawking invites, I’m still not drinking the Joost cool-aid.

But in the interest of fairness I will continue to try the service again and again. I will keep visiting Joost. The door remains open for my mind to be changed.

Thanks for the invite.

Thanks for the invite Daisy. I think the main issue starts with content. I checked out Joost, it was somewhat amusing, but why would I go back? The cutting edge may be the first to regularly check for new content. But the money still lies with audience proliferation.


Erik Kannengießer:
