Video Sneak Peak: The New myAOL

Posted on June 19, 2007

I am really excited to share a video of the new myAOL that my friend and TECH cocktail co-founder Frank Gruber put together. Frank is the Product Manager for myAOL (that’s why he moved to the D.C. area) and has been working day and night with his team on myAOL for a while now.

That said, I have read some of the criticisms of the product in the Tech Crunch comments (i.e. the product is not innovative, AOL is a year behind everyone, etc.) but I think the thing we all forget sometimes is that we are on the cutting edge of technology and not everyone is.

AOL is helping to bring the technology and ideas we’ve all proven out over the past few years to the masses. They help ideas and technology cross the chasm and that’s important.

For example, some people still don’t subscribe to feeds. I know… it’s crazy but it’s true. I think this product will definitely help more people understand feeds (among other things) and I think that is a very good thing.

myAOL should launch later this summer. Make sure to subscribe to the myAOL blog to stay up to date with Frank and team’s progress.
