First Class Tech in the Second City
Crain’s Chicago has published a new two-part article on The new face of technology, and we’re glad to see a few familiar faces in among the companies being featured.
FeedBurner, the popular (and widget-enabled) feed management service uses Movable Type for their Burning Questions blog, and is featured in the story with a big picture of FeedBurner CEO Dick Costolo. Clearly, having a blog for one’s business makes one photogenic.
Need more proof? 37Signals’ Jason Fried is also pictured, with extensive mentions made of Signal vs. Noise, 37Signals’ super-popular blog. Signal vs. Noise, of course, uses Movable Type for publishing and FeedBurner for feed management, so what’s not to love? As Crain’s reports:
In the last year Mr. Fried’s 37Signals has popped up in the pages of Wired and the Wall Street Journal. The company’s blog, Signal vs. Noise, attracts 25,000 readers every day. “A lot more has to happen but it’s a good first step,” Mr. Fried says. “It might inspire those who are here to say, ‘I don’t need to leave Chicago for San Francisco or New York.’ “
Now that you’re sold on Chicago technology bloggers, head on over to the recently-redesigned Gaper’s Block and find out where Chicagoans are hanging out, online and offline. With the combination of your new nightlife and your Movable Type blog, pretty soon your pretty mug will be in the paper, too.
