When Kevin Rose says you’re a rockstar…

Wow, Kevin Rose has a list of people you might want to add when you are on Pownce (which continues growing faster than Twitter or Jaiku) and he says I’m a video rockstar on it. I wonder if he’ll say that after he sees the next Fast Company column I wrote where I talk up Pownce competitor Twitter? Unfortunately that was written right before Pownce came out. Sigh. I hate writing things for dead trees that have two-to-three month lead times. Kevin Rose not withstanding Twitter still has more users and more message flow. It’s going to be interesting to see these services compete with each other.

That said, lots of people read dead trees. Example? A childhood neighbor (who now works at Oracle) that I haven’t seen for 30 years saw my Fast Company article and dropped me a line. Wild.

Pownce is getting some mainstream media coverage of its own, too. The New York Times covers it today.

I’m testing out CoComment

CoComment CEO Matt Colebourne

I’m now signed into CoComment in preparation for the launch of the service on Monday. My username is: RobertScoble. It’ll be interesting to see how the new version works — they are turning on a ton of new features, CEO Matt Colebourne told me at the Satisfactory party on Thursday. That’s a photo of Matt included on this post. I’m off to comment on some other people’s blogs and I’ll let you know how it goes. This service has come a long way since I broke the story about the first version from a Swiss Chalet.

While I’m here I’m including some code to claim my link blog over on Technorati.
