Dabble: It's Balpha!

Om Malik mentioned us late last night, and was very complementary. Thanks Om!

Om mentioned that we are video bookmarking site, but we have some other features as well, for people to search, browse and ask for video and make playlists.

We have lots of folks to thank, as we head towards a closed balpha launch next week (we'll invite folks in order from the email submissions.. because the engineers want to see how things go with the service, and test a few things, before we open up to the public). We'll be demoing Dabble on Wednesday night at an IDG thing. The engineers have been working very hard, and deserve kudos for their great work making the site.

Big thanks to investors like Hank Barry, Evan Williams, Steve Schlenker and Mark Pincus. Their support goes way beyond the financial. They have been invaluable to me with their advice, support, introductions and help. The Dabble Team could not have done this without them.

And our advisors too have been really great: Kent Bye, John Borthwick, Peter Hirshberg, Ross Mayfield, Glenn Reid, Sally Rosenthal, Doc Searls, and Jeff Ubois.

Thanks to all, and if you are interested in an invite, add your email to Dabble, and if you have questions, email me at mary at dabble.com.

Wow, what an enthusiastic review from Om--congratulations! And I like that new word "videomarks."

My email is already in the Dabble inbox. I look forward to dabbling in its many features to manage and keep track of my videos.

I always fancied myself a dabbler.

Now I will have a tool to do so?

Oh My! Great Day In The Morning!

Your new service seems really interesting (valuable, too) of course. Looking forward to getting a chance to use it, when its out.

Good luck with it.
