Dailymile Launches

Posted by JeremyGThomas Dec 18, 2008

Congrats to Ben Weiner and Kelly Korevec for the public launch of  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.

The Active Lifestyle

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.
