Dailymile Launches

Posted by JeremyGThomas Dec 18, 2008

Congrats to Ben Weiner and Kelly Korevec for the public launch of dailymile.com.  I admire the way dailymile focuses on building user communities around events.  The UI is easy to use and intuitive, and they've amassed a good userbase while in private beta.  I especially like the feature where users can submit events, and this is something we're contemplating doing here at Active too.

 

You can read about their launch here.

 

update: turns out we have an older feature that allows users to submit events here.

The Active Lifestyle

Posted by jspitzberg Dec 4, 2008

I guess this is what passes for fun around here.

 

 

 

The lesson, as always, is don't brag that you can do the same number of sit-ups that you could do when you were 12 unless you can do the same number of sit-ups that you could do when you were 12!

 

This is all the result of a "warped" corporate culture here at Active where we are encourage to... well, BE active.  A great example of this is the Active X program that our Art Director, Arch Fuston has put together.  There's a full and a lite version for those of different fitness levels.  It's great fun and a killer workout, as I'm sure Damon will attest.
