Getting AVC Via Email

Did you know that you can get AVC delivered by email every day?

I've had this feature for as long as I can remember. At least seven or eight years.

But it seems like it is hidden because not that many people choose to get it this way.

You can go here and subscribe via email.

I use a service called Feedblitz to power this. The one feature I'd love to see Feedblitz offer is "reply to the daily email and post a comment". That would be killer.

    Fred, I like getting a lot of different content via email, but for A VC I prefer to visit here directly. That’s a compliment to you and the A VC community, because to me it feels better to “walk in to the bar and say hello” than to “phone it in”. ;-)The comment thread often provides a lot of value for me, social and otherwise, so while options are great, this community is one where attendance is my preference (time allowing).

    1. fredwilson

      That is music to my ears

      1. JimHirshfield

        Early in the day, it’s at your place ( Later in the day, it’s my place (email inbox).

    2. Kevin Williams

      As a long-time email subscriber, this is my first post in the comments and only third time I’ve visited the blog- frankly, I don’t have the time or the tolerance to graze multiple times throughout the day and prefer to get my Fred Fix (also my Seth Fix) via email.That said, I’m ABSOLUTELY missing out on the community and the conversation in favor of the headline and need to do a better job of coming here and taking a deep dive at least once a week. What I can’t do is jump down the rabbit hole every day, it’s fun, it’s satisfying but I’m plain tapped out on bandwidth as it is.

      1. Dale Allyn

        Kevin, I totally get it. For me, I love what Fred instigates here and the juice that comes in the comments, so the comments and community are valuable to me.I’ve been really tapped out on time/bandwidth as well. In fact have stayed (mostly) away for a bit because of it (probably a feature for the community, not a bug ;). Presently, I’m in Thailand and have evenings free to catch up on such things, so have more time than normal to make trouble here.

      2. ShanaC

        no worries – we welcome you when you are here – feel free to shoot me an email anytime – [email protected]

      3. leigh

        i miss the community but crap, i’m with you i literally can’t find the bandwidth. I just signed up for the email bc hopefully it will be my own alert system when i see a post i know the conversation will be juicy i can swing on by. 🙂

    3. karen_e

      Yep. I’m with Dale.

    4. ShanaC

      well hello!

      1. Dale Allyn

        Hello! to you, Shana. 🙂

    5. Donna Brewington White

      I remember the first time I clicked over from the email and discovered the comments. My world changed.

    6. CJ

      I agree I just wish I had the time to hang around here like I used to, new projects at work keeping me super busy.

      1. Dale Allyn

        It’s the same for me Malcolm. With the exception of these past several days (while in Thailand) I’ve been so busy that I’ve had much less time to engage here. New projects, extra work, etc…

  2. Carl Rahn Griffith

    With spam filters being so efficient nowadays email is certainly undergoing something of a renaissance – I wrote of its demise a few years ago (when spam was getting crazy and filtering was pretty ineffective) but I am pleased to see it having recovered, as when it works it is still highly relevant – will be fascinating to see where it goes in the future in this new dialogue landscape we have nowadays – ideas such as this would certainly help to take it to another level.

    1. awaldstein

      Important topic.The web is very location inefficient. Email when parsed correctly can be extremely efficient. And while nothing actually beats a text, there is a big behavioral leap to what you want to receive frequently via email and what you will tolerate being texted to you.

      1. RichardF

        As JLM would say I agree with you more than you agree with yourself Arnold!

  3. Jan Schultink

    Not using email subscriptions anymore, just visit the site once a day. My inbox is my todo list and I want to keep it as short as possible with rigorous archiving, filtering and unsubscribing

    1. Aaron Klein

      I’m with you on that. I just don’t use email for content. I want a “living inbox” that clears itself for content, and I call this inbox “Twitter.” 🙂

      1. karen_e

        Oh, you do have a way with words, Aaron.

        1. Aaron Klein

          🙂 Thanks.

    2. falicon

      I use my inbox as my todo list as well…keep trying other things, but always fall back into this mode/workflow…easiest way for me to really keep up across all the different projects/teams I’ve got my hands into (yes yes – I know that’s part of my problem right there) 😉

    3. ShanaC

      what caused (for you) for your inbox to become your todo list?

      1. Jan Schultink

        It keeps track of presentation iterations I need to do for clients

  4. Fernando Gutierrez

    I’m subscribed since I knew this place and use it a lot. I’m a lot of time on the road and email is always more convenient than browsing.I’d too love that feature you mention, but maybe that would make the comments more chaotic (now you have to come here, maybe you see someone has already commented on what you wanted to say and you reply instead of starting a new thread). Anyway, maybe that is something for Disqus to do. lets you subscribe to comments (emails with new comments, like Disqus does) and blogs (you get an email with every new post). If Disqus sends me an email with the post I guess that the next step should be quite trivial for them.

  5. Rohan

    Email – the ultimate social media channel.I’d wager that most helpful sharing is done via email thanks to the trust that goes with the channel.

  6. William Mougayar

    Fred, I used it a long time ago then disabled it. Sorry to say it’s almost useless because the email arrives 12-24 hour after you publish the post.What would be better is some instant notification when you publish a new post. For a fast moving blog like yours, readers want to be notified right away.That could work via Twitter but you don’t always tweet your new posts right away. Could you set it to auto-tweet new posts?

    1. Dale Allyn

      I’m likely in the minority among this community, but I’d much prefer an immediate direct email notification over Twitter. When I’m busy (most of the time) I don’t even look at Twitter due to the noise and distraction. I get some curated content from Twitter via email which I really do like though. Still, for a site i value (such as A VC), I’d prefer a ping in my inbox. And I’d still want to go directly to the site upon receiving the ping.

      1. phollows

        Dale: That’s basically what we are now delivering for Fred.

        1. Dale Allyn

          Thanks, I subscribed to give it a try. The delayed broadcast of such things is useless to me, but I like the idea of a little notice of a new post so I can visit if I have time.

      2. bsoist

        > for a site i value (such as A VC), I’d prefer a pingAgreed! The difference for me is that I stay out of my email until noon. I’ve invested a good deal of effort into limiting interruptions. The only way to interrupt me is to text me. A while back, I set up a recipe at that would SMS me when a new item shows in AVC’s RSS feed.I set that up because I was having the problem @wmoug:disqus describes above. I read AVC for years but ignored the comments ( soured by decades of online discussion ). After I discovered the quality of conversation in the comments here, I was blown away. I don’t comment a whole lot, but I read as much of the discussion as I possibly can. Fred’s posting time was after my morning scan of RSS, but long before my afternoon scan, so I was missing out on the polls every 15 minutes, so I’m never that late to the party. If the email notice is really sent out as soon as the post is up, a filter in my email to text me would get to me even sooner, but I can live with up to a fifteen minute delay. I want to see a lot of good comments when I get here anyway. 🙂

        1. Dale Allyn

          I don’t avoid my email (but I have separate accounts which get different levels of attention). It’s good that you’ve worked out a good notification method.I stepped away from most online discussions as well, for reasons similar to yours. I’ve found a couple which are of consistently high quality, and A VC is one of them.

        2. Donna Brewington White

          “I want to see a lot of good comments when I get here anyway.”That is one of the advantages of arriving later. Like right now, for instance.But not as good for being part of the AVC content creation which the early commenters get to do.

    2. phollows

      Hi William:Fred changed the schedule from overnight a while back – the emails are sent shortly after the post goes live now. Come on back!

      1. Dale Allyn

        Ahh, that’s news to me, too. I didn’t like what I understood the process to be in the past (delayed broadcast), so avoided it. Thanks.

      2. William Mougayar

        Thanks. I just re-subscribed and was glad to see my older subscriptions there. Couple of comments:- the twitter DM notification is great. why can’t I select both email & Twitter- look at BoxCar for another notification service. they are very easy to work with, your pricing model is targeting the publisher, right? Is it always free for the consumer?

        1. phollows

          Hi William:The authentication models for Twitter DM (OAuth) and email (confirmed dual opt-in) are radically different. It’s too confusing for the casual subscriber to get both in a single UI. If you revisit the form and you can get a DM too. Yes, our pricing model is publisher-centric. We don’t charge consumers. Happy to be reached for more detailed product inquiries as @phollows on Twitter or [email protected]

    3. fredwilson

      I changed the settings on the email about a year ago. It is real time now

      1. William Mougayar

        I just re-subscribed. thanks.

      2. Matt A. Myers

        Why wouldn’t it be user-definable …

        1. ShanaC

          that would be a great idea

          1. Matt A. Myers

            You can never know when someone might want specific contebt, – so why not ask them …

      3. Mike Geer (MG)

        I think their “real time” isn’t quite real time yet. I think on average I’m on a 2 to 3 hour delay, but did notice when you changed it, as I used to be on about a 15 hour or more delay.

    4. awaldstein

      Different behaviors for different folks.I check it when I start to work at 5, then sometimes before meetings then…life takes over.I’m finding that the more I wall off my attention from the business of the web at the start of each day the more productive I am.

      1. William Mougayar

        yes, i dip in and out as well, but i like to be there in the first 30 mins to 1 hr after it’s posted.

        1. bsoist

          the first 30 – 60 minutes is the sweet spot

          1. William Mougayar

            exactly. otherwise, you pay the price for being late 🙂

          2. Donna Brewington White

            Since I am not staying up as late I typically miss the first few hours of AVC…and sometimes don’t get over here until late in the day.But it doesn’t always feel like a disadvantage because by then there are lots more comments and more people to respond to, so sometimes I’m still having interaction around a post a few days later and at times on multiple posts simultaneously. Of course the engagio alerts — miss those by the way — and the daily disqus emails help(ed) keep the convo going longer as well.

          3. William Mougayar

            But you are a pro at sifting through the comments and picking the ones to respond to. It’s like familiar territory. I know…I will miss my Engagio Inbox & where my friends are commenting. Someone (@disqus) ought to build that.

          4. bsoist

            It depends on the topic for me. Often I see a topic I don’t know a lot about, and I’ll purposely come back even later to read more.

          5. Donna Brewington White

            Same here. I often rely on the comments to better understand topics. The wealth of knowledge in this community is astounding.

    5. mikenolan99

      Years ago I set up an Auto-tweet for AVC, Seth and a couple of other blogs I read daily – as much for myself as for my followers. Funny, I just turned them off last night… may have to turn them back on.Also wondering what I’m going to use once Google turns off iGoogle – it’s been my homepage for so long… I think the big G turns it off this fall.

    6. WA

      Interesting. I find that they arrive early in the morning around when Fred posts them. I am almost certain of that. The key is getting to them within 12 hours sometimes.

    7. ShanaC

      this also happens for posts pushed to facebook

  7. OurielOhayon

    that s a disqus feature…they should hook

  8. andrewparker

    All the best comments on my blog are “private.” They are people that subscribe via email (I use FeedBurner email subscription, and I’m surprised you don’t too) and they reply to the emailed post directly to me.It’s high quality, invaluable feedback. I love it.

    1. fredwilson

      I get a fair bit of that but some of it could and should be public which is why I like the reply>disqus ideaI guess your point is the replier should have option of sending it to disqus or my inbox

  9. phollows

    Hi Fred:Thank you for the shout out! We’d love to enable that feature; please hook us up with the right folks at Disqus.

    1. Mike Geer (MG)

      Just to state a caveat here, Phil. By allowing such a feature, you will start to have a lot more comments (possibly a good thing), but they will be all silo’d as the commenter will then not come to the site and see the comments (and reply to the comments) from other readers. This could really affect the feel of the great discussions we have here these days.@fredwilson:disqus definitely a be careful what you wish for product idea. However, in the proud tradition of tech, probably cool to test it out and see!

      1. LE

        “but they will be all silo’d as the commenter will then not come to the site and see the comments (and reply to the comments) from other readers.”Agree.

      2. falicon

        not that he wants the extra work/email…but a nice in-between solution would be for the email responses to go directly to Fred (or the moderators of this forum)…and have an easy way for them to ‘post to site as comment’ from the orig. author. A bit of a ‘approval’ process of sorts that will make it quick/easy for the private stuff to stay private and still give an easy way to make the stuff that would benefit the community as a whole public and part of the larger conversation…

      3. phollows

        Not without its challenges – thinking out of office replies, for example.

  10. Brandon Burns

    I liked MBA Mondays better. :o)

    1. Dale Allyn

      But you graduated with honors, Brandon, so it’s time to goof off for a bit. 😉

      1. Brandon Burns

        lol. ok, spring break. i can dig it.

        1. Dale Allyn

          Yep, “Brandon’s Gone Wild, order the DVD now!”;)

          1. Brandon Burns


          2. pointsnfigures

            Been having trouble sleeping. I think I will order that one on Netfilx.

          3. Brandon Burns

            Your trouble sleeping is about to get a whole lot worse!

    2. fredwilson

      I am thinking hard about what’s next while on my sabbatical

      1. Matt A. Myers

        Monday Book Club (might need to work on the name)?Not necessarily business or internet related. Maybe have guest posts for them – people who have been touched by a book or learned a lot, intertwining with their own experiences, etc.. I think each one could be a beautiful and lovely way to start the week, and where you’d be able to get to know some regular posters more regularly if they do a guest post.I like to read Jonathoan Livingston Seagull every once in a while. It’s been far too long since I last read it – so I re-read it over the past week. I would recommend everyone read it.It’s a beautiful story that resonates with me a lot. I have many favourite quotes from the book, though this might be my favourite one;'”I remember a fierce young bird, for instance, Fletcher Lynd Seagull, his name. Just been made Outcast, ready to fight the Flock to the death, getting a start on building his own bitter hell out on the Far Cliffs. And here he is today building his own heaven instead, and leading the whole Flock in that direction.”‘

        1. Brandon Burns

          Nice guest post idea to give fred a break.I’d also like to hear stories about how people didn’t take well to a book. Par example, I have a love/hate relationship with The Lean Startup; a piece on why it might not be the bible for you would be good to read.Which just takes me to… why not just talk about some conventional wisdoms, in general, that may not actually work for everyone? Like an opinion on why you DON’T want a technical co-founder. Or a success story about a company that never uses data to make decisions. Etc.I always like to hear the counter-opinion. Even if its not the road for you, there are lessons to be found in the journey.Could be like the anti-MBA Monday.

          1. Russell

            hey Brandon, what is your beef with The Lean Start-up. It is the next book to read on my bedside table.

          2. Brandon Burns

            I’m not sure if its the book itself, or how its put into practice, but after completing so many customer validation loops, many people find themselves too far away not only from where they started as a business (which can be good, maybe) but they also loose sight of their personal aspirations, passions, and reason for starting the business in the first place.Sure, lean can teach you how to pivot Burbn into Instagram, but what if you don’t give a shit about photography? You’re never going to build Instagram anyway because you followed the customer validation loop down one road while your heart is trying to find another.Its great for what some people would call “true entrepreneurs” who just like to build businesses and are indifferent to what they are, as long as they’re successful. But if you’re not that person, Lean can leave you a bit misguided.I have more tactical issues with some of the methodology, but the big beef pretty much boils down to that.

          3. Russell

            Yeah, I can dig that. Still going to read it but always like to read reviews of a book to get outside views. If you’re looking for a good, albeit hefty, one check out…. It is taking me a while but the LBJ/JFK dynamic is a slow burning sizzler!

          4. Brandon Burns

            I find LBJ endlessly fascinating. I will surely pick up this book, and the rest of the series. Thanks!

          5. Russell

            Yes – he is really, really interesting and Caro really digs into the reasons, quirks and means for developing and holding power. Fascinating stuff!

          6. falicon

            I’m with you…I have a love/hate with almost every philosophy out there 😉

          7. Matt A. Myers

            Agreed. I think having the ideas of a book as a basis for context would work well, and stir up conversation for those who liked/disliked concepts presented when perhaps ideas shared are rebutted.

      2. Brandon Burns

        if its a true sabbatical, why not line up some fun guests posts for the next couple mondays? and you can enjoy your break?just a thought…

        1. Russell


      3. falicon

        How about ‘Monday Mistakes’…you can give a story or details about various mistakes you’ve made (or at least learned from others making) over your career…you could expand to cover mistakes you’ve seen various startups make and what results or consequences they tend to invoke…

        1. Brandon Burns

          I loooooove this.

          1. falicon

            …that is by total, happy, mistake 😉

        2. Mac

          Like that

      4. Troy Lazarus

        Fred,That should be easy,, touch on global topics that you aren’t even totally involved with.. Kind of something that puts you in wonder( by asking questions) and have the community jumpstart the discussion. Remember you are the starter and we are bench

  11. jason wright

    i get avc to my inbox via rss – is feedblitz something else? does it come with food stamps?

    1. JimHirshfield

      You’re thinking of FeedBlintz

  12. JimHirshfield

    Speaking of Disqus mashups, here’s one that popped on our radar last week: (spoiler alert: Google + Disqus)Built by a high school computer science teacher. Did it as a project for his students to demonstrate how PHP can bring together different web services.

    1. falicon

      I saw this last week as well…I thought it was a pretty cool concept.

  13. Aaron Klein

    Why Feedblitz over Feedburner?I use both…Feedburner is free, works well for daily and was @dickc’s last startup. Feedblitz is what I use for weekly and I have a number of subscribers who like that choice. I’m still in the lowest tier of weekly subscribers, so they only ding me for $3 every month.

    1. Aaron Klein

      This may have been my first downvote. Yes!

      1. Donna Brewington White

        That had to have been a mistake. But funny how it is surprisingly affirming to receive a downvote — just so there aren’t too many of them.Didn’t Andy once say something along the lines of not really being an MVP (FG’s version) if no one hates you.And, I’m having a “duh” moment because I somehow thought Feedburner and Feedblitz were the same.

        1. Aaron Klein

          Indeed. Doesn’t bother me at all. 😉

    2. fredwilson

      i was using feedblitz before feedburner launched their email service. phil was doing a fine job and i rewarded him by sticking with his service

      1. Aaron Klein

        Nothing wrong with that. I just wondered if a particular feature had caused you to go with Feedblitz. It’s a great product!

  14. Steve

    Odd timing because I just re-subscribed to a number of tech/business blogs over the wknd. Maybe email is making a comeback. For me, email subscription is by far the best way to receive blog content.

  15. AlexBangash

    Fred, I get via AVC via email. It used to be delayed but now it is realtime. Thank you for that. As one of my advisors likes to say, people are engaged with their inboxes.

  16. Mac

    @phollows:disqus Phil, at the end of the thread, the comments become mangled-one on top of the other-and are illegible. Something on my end?

    1. Mike Geer (MG)

      I think that’s a question to @JimHirshfield:disqus (Disqus), not @phollows:disqus (Feedblitz), Mac.

      1. Mac

        @JimHirshfield:disqus Thanks, Mike

  17. Aruni S. Gunasegaram

    Email is still my favorite way to get blog posts from people I follow regularly. It would be great if I could post a comment by just hitting reply to the email because there are more times than not that I don’t have the time to go to the site, log in to Disquis, and post a comment. Then when I do have the time, the thought has passed or it doesn’t seem as important to share it, so I move on to the next thing.I get your posts and Seth Godin’s post in my inbox every day. Those along with my Daily Dilbert & Gaping Void cartoons, are usually the emails I read pretty much every day. Well, Dilbert I know I always read. :-)I use Feedburner/Feedblitz as well on my blog. I set mine up on Feedburner, but people can subscribe via either.

  18. falicon

    I’ll do you one better…did you know that you can set up your very own account, then head into the ‘montiors’ feature, put in any keywords or topics you’re interested in and get an email (daily or immediately) any time there is a conversation with that keyword or conversation here on AVC?Kind of like Google alerts…but for the whole conversation across any site that indexes (currently a nice little list of AVC-like sites).

    1. ShanaC

      there are google alerts in I can use it for a spam alert?

      1. falicon

        It’s only a little like google alerts…it’s conversation monitoring (driven by keywords or phrases)…so it would be hard to use in it’s current form for spam alerts because it’s designed to tell you when something specific is mentioned or talked about (rather than to alert you when something is off topic — though that would also be a really interesting system to build).The system at the moment works really well for monitoring mentions of a product, service, link, or name…so for example, when someone mentions in a comment or a blog post (or links to the domain), I get an email within a few minutes of them posting it…and I can then follow the link over to see what they are saying and engage them in a conversation around it if needed…

  19. SAYEED

    Hello Fred, Would you be interested in SS&C Private Equity and VENTURE CAPITAL Solution

    1. fredwilson

      no idea what that is

  20. Elia Freedman

    I’m not in love with the reply to email to start a comment thread. (love it when responding to someone who left a comment to my comment, though.) I always like to review the existing comments as much as possible before posting to make sure I’m not just duplicating someone else’s thoughts. I’d be concerned that reply to start a comment thread would create a ton of duplicate comments.

    1. Mike Geer (MG)

      Agreed. Good thought on that reply to reply scenario too.

      1. Elia Freedman

        That works in the email from Disqus. (In fact I used it right now. 🙂

        1. Mike Geer (MG)

          Very useful, indeed 😉

    2. LE

      The other issue is that some commenters end up editing their comments for clarity or because something becomes apparent once you hit “post”. (Me)I always though disqus should have a “preview” button for this reason.The edit box is small and there are also issues with line endings and use of the limited html tags that sometimes get mangled.

      1. Elia Freedman

        Another good point. I do that all the time, too.

      2. Donna Brewington White

        That is probably one of my pet peeves as well. Also, once the comment goes live, Fred or the person being responded to does not see the change unless they go directly to the site. Even a short delay before the comment is transmitted would be helpful.

    3. fredwilson

      great point

    4. Donna Brewington White

      ” I always like to review the existing comments as much as possible before posting…”That is considerate of you, Elia. Personally, I don’t mind reading the same type of comment more than once because each person brings another nuance to the discussion.I’m surprised that there is not more redundancy than there is.



    1. William Mougayar

      I agree, but Email requires a very ‘expensive’ infrastructure to serve at a big scale. That leaves only Google for solving it.Mailbox has 619,340 people on the wait list as of now.



    2. Carl Rahn Griffith

      Whilst I stuck with Yahoo! (for too long) as my email service provider – personal and small business use – I began to hate email: since switching to Gmail I rather like it once again.

    3. falicon

      I don’t feel like email is broken at all. At least not for me. But I do hear people say that it is all the time…

      “EMAIL IS BROKEN.”Lately we’ve been seeing arbitrary blocking by gmail of mail flow to their servers from IP addresses that they believe are spamming. They will literally cut off an IP and there is no way to get it reinstated. Since so many people use gmail accounts (or forward to gmail accounts) this presents a real problem. Others do this as well with the RBL’s which aren’t particularly well tended to and some even charge to get an IP removed from the list (what a great business opportunity that is simply get yourself on RBL checking sites, start to block IP’s, and then charge for someone to remove their IP. Even if no value some people will pay you.Back to google there has to be more to this strategy by them then simply wanting to cut down on traffic inbound to their massive infrastructure.

          1. Google is free2. Our customers use google3. Our customers customers/contacts use google4. Google blocks email inboundAs an aside this has actually become an opportunity. When faced with email stopping (and not fully understanding enough to know where to point fingers or care) customers seem willing to pay more for a robust solution to getting better results with email for example by having their own IP address and instead of using a shared server having their own VPS. Possibly even something racked, colocated and managed.In the past this was a much harder sell. But the minute someone has a bad experience their immediate reaction (seeing how valuable things are) is to spend money to solve the pain.They key is designing a solution that gives people something better but doesn’t provide a guarantee because as you know even the best solutions can have issues.This by the way on Amazon is paid but it’s still a clusterfuck waiting to happen, big, complex with many points of failure.

    I’ve consumed AVC via email for years now. Love it. But then, I do work for an email company! 😉 I would *love* to comment via email. That would be awesome, though I do also love stopping into the “bar” when I have time …

      That’s a nifty service. Like Yahoo! Pipes for non-geeks.I signed-up & will compare to Feedblitz.

    I got the emails for the first year or so between midnight and 2:00 a.m. and that was my signal that I should go to bed. So AVC became a bedtime routine. Then, I discovered that you were actually posting 20 – 24 hours before the email arrived and that there were COMMENTS! That’s when I began checking in directly most mornings rather than waiting for the email to come that night. My life has never been the same since. — and of course sometimes the NEW post comes in just before I go to bed. ;)BTW, the emails stopped coming over a year ago and then resumed briefly a few months ago only to stop again.

    I’ve been getting A VC by email for a couple of years now. I love getting it right into my inbox especially since I can archive my favorites for easy access since they’re so chock full of good information. Getting it by email doesn’t hinder me as I often click over to the site to read the comments as you’ve built a great community here. That said, I would love the a “reply to the daily email and post a comment” feature.

    The technology exists to reply to an email and post a comment directly inside the mail – it’s called PowerInbox and it’s revolutionizing email – check it out at

    I get all my AVC posts via e-mail and wouldn’t read the blog otherwise. A reply to comment would be fantastic. Why doesn’t Disqus do a feed reader that integrates with their comment system automatically?

    Thanks!Set up is still *way* more clunky than it should be (I gotta get a UI/UX person to help out on that I think)…but once you get over that hurdle, I think it can provide a ton of value to anyone that uses it. 🙂

  32. awaldstein

    News to me that this existed. Useful.For me especially as my relationship to this blog is very topic specific.

  33. ShanaC

    i actually know a UX person in boston looking for work

  34. falicon

    It’s been a hidden feature since the start…this *might* be the first time I’ve publicly mentioned it (mostly because the UI/UX for set up is so rough that I knew most people will struggle to set it up properly — but I’ll take that as motivation to get it cleaned up/fixed faster now).It’s also not just for AVC, it works for all conversations across all of (and actually monitors content flowing through a few other popular destinations on the web like reddit).Though it’s really just a little feature of the overall service, it’s been my personal favorite (and most used) since the start.Hope you enjoy it as well (now that you know about it) 😉
