Ning in the SF Chron: Let's not get too excited, OK?

Well...a front page story today in the SF Chronicle about a new Internet company, complete with
photos from the launch party (held at Ruby Skye), analyst quotes overflowing with optimism ("...social networking is about to become, in the words of Forrester Research analyst Charlene Li, "like air. You can't escape it, you have to have it. It will be built into everything we touch and do online.") and lots and lots of promises of overwhelming growth.

The Chronicle seems to have gotten over its crush on Google, so that's good news. But it seems like they're ready to dive back to the heady days. We'll keep a close eye on them.

Hey Gary!

Just to clarify: that wasn't a launch party for a company, or if it was, it wasn't a launch party for our company, Ning.

We're busy working away in the office! :-)

Thanks!
Gina
ceo - Ning

Hi Gina!

My apologies: I'll make the update and thanks for the note. I'm sure you all are going strong and I wish you the best of luck.
