This Week in Google 309 - TWiT (Snapzu gets a video review!)

The episode is long but has some great discussions about tech (mostly Google), but what stood out was that they also included a nice (somewhat lengthy) review of Snapzu starting at the 1:42 mark. Good to see Snapzu getting some love out there.

    "if there's another problem over at reddit" - more like when. This AMA I think will be the "thing" that will cause another split.

      I think so too. And I also think that they have more than 1 straw left, but each time it will be a bigger event than the previous. Reddit is a big beast and these are just minor flesh wounds.

        You'll never get rid of a problem. Facebook is still around, and look at the trash that is spewed into feeds each second of the day. When I first heard about that AMA I thought "gee, you've not only stirred up the hornets nest, but you've knocked it to the ground and set it alight". Trying to hold a discussion to fix the problem might rebuild the nest, but you're going to have to build it through a very pissed off swarm of homeless hornets.

        As I said to my partner last night, Reddit was perfectly fine a few months back. Sure there was bad stuff, but you didn't go to those subreddits if you didn't want to see/read that content. Now that they tried to "fix" it by forcibly removing the content, the content is everywhere and you can't go a day without seeing something that you wouldn't have seen a few months back.

    That was a really great review of some of our flagship functionality! Special thanks to @aaronnewcomb for taking the time to give us a shot, we really appreciate the mention! Oh, and /u/geoleo, thanks for bringing this to our attention! :)

    Really cool to see people around the net talking about the site. Also, didn't know about this show. Actually looks sort of interesting. Nice concept.

    "They call their subreddits, 'tribes.'" LOL I didn't know subreddit was a generic term now.

      I think its more the communicative purpose of the term. There is no better way to explain a tribe in one word!

    That was a pretty nicely done quick overview of Snapzu. It is really nice to see it getting this kind of publicity now.

    I keep forgetting that TWiT exists. Thanks for the reminder. More podcasts for the podcast dump.
