We Got the ‘Beat

September 20, 2006

Our very own Joyce Park just submitted a guest post to VentureBeat, “The Downfall of Female Role Models”:

There are few terms more abused in public life these days than “role model”, of course — I always admired Charles Barkley’s take on the subject, and certainly none of these women could be said to overtly have volunteered for the role — but like it or not they enter into the calculations of many women below them…

    On your front page, you should have the two screenshots link to full-size pictures. It’d be easier to tell what’s going on. Also, consider having more screenshots. Just a suggestion. Keep up the good work. Renkoo looks very cool.

    Thanks, James. The front page will be changing soon, and soon we’ll be in public beta so anyone can try Renkoo.
