It’s been way too long since I’ve written here on Udi’s Spot and perhaps we’re due for an update.
I’d like to share 2 recent milestones that I’m quite proud of with all y’all (I just spent Thanksgiving in Alabama).
First, my pet project of about 6 years, isitnormal.com, recently cracked 1 million unique visitors in a month. IIN’s growth has been slow, but steady over the years and it’s really starting to pick up some steam. It’s become quite an active community and has certainly been a very interesting project to work on. I’ve learned more than I ever imagined there was to know about my fellow human beings.
Second up is the Firefox Extension that I designed and built while at VideoSurf and that the great team there has continued to maintain, improve and port to other platforms since my departure. The Videos At A Glance extension now has well over 1 million downloads, has been featured regularly by Mozilla (surely a big help with all those downloads, thanks Mozilla) and is just about the top rated FF Extension from about 1,000 in the “Photos, Music & Videos” category of the Mozilla Addon’s website. Its success is also a testament to the strength of the awesome video search platform that VideoSurf has built. Anyone could have built this extension on top of their public API, and I think that’s pretty cool.
Also, while I’m sharing, my newest startup is getting very close to launch and we’re extremely excited. If you’re curious, drop us your email at http://SaleLocator.com and I’ll try get you invited as soon as I can. We need more user feedback! Thanks!
