Robert Scoble is impressed by Blogtronix

OK, over the weekend we (George and I ) went to Seattle at the Blog Business Summit 101.
We wanted to show Blogtronix to few people there, including to Microsoft.
So, since Robert Scoble was there to teach businesses how to blog, we set up a meeting with him before hand.
After a few hours at the conference, I was able to get to Robert and pull him a side for a demo of blogtronix.
So what did Robert has to say about it? Well, he wants to test it himself before he gives a final verdict, but also he blog this about Blogtronix:

"But, yesterday at the Blog Business Summit I saw two things that really are interesting. Here’s why. When I go to companies to speak, they keep asking me “how do I do something similar to Channel 9.” That isn’t easy. We had two developers working on that for quite a while. They started with Community Server from Telligent (Microsoft’s employee blogs are run on top of Community Server — we have more than 2,000 now and a TON of traffic, so it holds up very well. The new Xbox.com forums are built on top of Community Server as well). Our tech team on Channel 9 (Charles, Brin, Adam, and Jeff) mashed in video components and a Wiki and other stuff and then hacked the heck out of it to make it Channel 9. I’ve been hoping that a company would come out with a set of tools/service that would make it possible to do a Channel 9 style site.

BlogTronix is the answer. It’s awesome. Has all that and more (and has security built in so you can blog both internally and externally very easily). I’m going to get a test blog there and will write more after I actually can try it out."

Not too bad for a start.
We are putting some 700+ beta test users in 10 days to test the new Blogtronix systems, bugs will be fixed and even new features will be available in Dec.
Stay tuned.
