Hot Potato New York Times article

I just came across this article in the New York Times today on a competitor of ours

Hot Potato, which recently launched at the TechCrunch Crunchup, takes a different approach to creating conversations centered around places and events......

Lol how about an article on the original “live event chat” company –

While you are it you can write about and as well.

Lol and I swear we had the words “developing highly scalable chat technologies for interacting during live events” on our website the day we went public back in May 2009 though it's always a shock to see these words in the Hot Potato powerpoints and descriptions -lol.

Though to be honest after using the Hot Potato app for the last week since it launched i feel it's a closer competitor to and much more of a 'check in' style application rather than the "destination" chat website application that we have for and

P.S. and yes I am jealous of the $1.4m they raised in their seed round - makes out $300k we are looking to raise look like a bargain.
