Happy birthday to FeedBurner, the Chicago-based feed management company, which celebrated two years since its pre-alpha launch today (February 25, 2006). FeedBurner now manages more than 208,474 feeds for more than 135,238 publishers and continues to add new publishers like wildfire. So to extrapolate the numbers a little bit - on average FeedBurner has added:
- 286 new feeds a day
- 185 new publishers a day
- 12 new feeds an hour
- 8 new publishers a hour
This is an amazing feat for such a short run. FeedBurner admits it feels a lot older than it is by saying:
"Since it is the Year of the Dog, after all, we're going to say we feel more like 14."
I would have to agree the speed of a technology year, especially in the Web 2.0 space, is a lot quicker than other types of business. Happy birthday and kudos to FeedBurner for excelling and continuing to grow and adapt in the Web 2.o space.
