As we kick-off the New Year, I want to thank you for making the last four months so fun! While I have posts dating back to July ’05, I really started dedicating time to this blog back in September. I’m amazed that there are so many of you reading it but there are miles to go before I sleep.
Below, you’ll find the top five posts for my blog for 2005, as determined by FeedBurner clickthroughs. While I am lucky enough to have Adaptive Path’s Measure Map, those reading my feed represent the most regular readers of my blog.
I hope to continue to provide quality content and analysis to you through 2006 and beyond. I encourage you to keep me honest, to let me know what you like and what you don’t, and most importantly to keep reading!
I wish you and yours the very best in 2006.

By all accounts, Flock is not going to be the browser of choice for my sisters, my uncle or his friends, or many of my professional (non-blogosphere) contacts.

In both examples, the power of the verticals is at work. People like services that do one thing extremely well over doing many things just OK. They enjoy visiting sites that produce content around one subject.
