Web directions update #3: Campaign monitor

I just attended the talk given by Dave Greiner & Ben Richardson who created Campaign Monitor and it was the first talk of today that really hit home. Don’t get me wrong, the other talks have been excellent, but this one, for me anyway was about something that REALLY interested me. That is, creating and marketing a online application that solves a specific problem, all while working somewhere else full time. For those of you plpaying at home, I’m doing exactly that with 88 Miles.

It was very reassuring that these guys went through simple experiences that I have had or am currently having. I’m going to stalk, erm, filnd them after all the talks finish and picks their brains.

I’m currently in John Allsopp’s microformats and mashup talk. It is filling my geek quota quite nicely…

More soon.
