Foxmarks on Techcrunch

Earlier today, Michael Arrington posted a nice piece about Foxmarks on his influential blog, Techcrunch. As his post suggests, we are indeed working on a significant expansion of the current service offering. We're still pretty early in the development cycle, but what we're building is shaping up into something we think you'll find both useful and interesting. We're pretty darned excited about the potential, but at the same time, we don't want to crank up the hype; being the modest folks that you've always known us to be, vaporware is anathema to us. As we get closer to a public launch, we'll be talking in more detail about what we're up to.

In the meantime, we wanted to address a couple of issues that the Techcrunch post will no doubt raise. First, if you're concerned about the privacy of your data, don't be. Before a public launch, we'll offer you tools to opt-out. Your privacy continues to be of paramount importance to us. See our privacy policy for more details.

Second, the post suggests that Foxmarks is strictly a Mitch & Todd show. That's an accurate picture from a year ago, but no more. We'll be doing introductions for the rest of the team shortly.

Finally, there's a whole other avenue of product development that isn't covered at all in the Techcrunch post. We've been listening to users of the current synchronization service and working to incorporate the best ideas and most important feedback. We'll be talking more about that work in the coming weeks, too.

Stay tuned for more info. And until then, happy syncing!
