Plaxo has just released Plaxo Pulse. Essentially, this is the first step towards an ‘open’ facebook or myspace. I tried the beta last week and they really nailed the feature set. I’m really happy to see Plaxo adjust their directions and move into this space. Is it game over for the other guys? Not quite yet. This is just a first step. However, judging by the velocity of their recent releases they are moving quickly. They are now at the table with all the other guys. Go check it out!
Also, congrats to Joseph, Ryan, the HipCal team, and everybody else for pulling Pulse together!
