Feedster’s product response to Jeremy Zawodny’s attack post was to announce improvements to the site and service yesterday. They’ve sped up search and simplified the look and feel.
I don’t want to pile on, but I will. This is too little too late. Former CEO Scott Rafer now heading up Wireless Ink (very cool startup), and co-founder Scott Johnson is at his new startup Ookles.
I’m not saying the Scott’s could have saved Feedster. Maybe they just saw the writing on the wall and knew it was time to leave.
Feedster has too high of a mountain to climb to get back in a leadership position. And new, well funded competitors are on the way. I’m not betting against Jeremy on this one.
