Ravelry got a blurb on Tech Crunch (via Amy). Now, the blurb was a little bit condescending, a smidge smartalecky, but I have no real problem with the blurb. What I do have a problem with = obnoxious male commenters who think knitting is not nearly as cool as their BOY STUFF. But it’s cool, the women have it covered. Zumagirl said, for example:
Smart business people will do a little research on the myriad of online communities before assuming that any one group is not tech-savvy enough to be worth catering to.
Yeah. Stick that in your techie startup pipes and smoke it, pals. Don’t make me send the Yarn Harlot over there with stats about knitting, knitbloggers and the power of the almighty knit-dollar.
In happier news: a producer from the local morning show (That’s Life, with Robin Swoboda) called this morning and so we’ll be demo’ing nuno felt and talking about the Stitch Cleveland launch party this weekend tomorrow. For you Clevelanders, that’s FOX 8 at 10:00 a.m. on Tuesday.
My mother has already yelled at me about my hair.
Keep your fingers and blow dryers crossed, willya?
