While Amazon Daily isn’t shutting down yet, we’re losing our gateway (homepage) placement to another new service offering. This will cut our traffic down dramatically.

Bet you never even noticed this widget, did you?

For me this represents the beginning of the end of an era. I was hired to work as a server software developer at Amazon for the Plogs project, which later turned into Amazon Daily. As the project has languished and priorities have shifted from enhancement to maintenance to life-support, I’ve been working on other things (like Musician, Author, and TV entity pages) but I’ll always have a soft spot for Plogs and a deep interest in scalable blogging aggregation and authoring platforms.
