Too Cruel To Cuil?
So it’s been a few days and we’ve had reaction here, here, here, here and here.
Oh and here, here, here, here and here, and my favourite being here!
Most, if not all the feedback and comments have been less than positive and I’m sure the management team have not been sleeping easy, nor have the investors.
I said on Monday we needed some time to assess the relevancy, and was reserving judgement as I’ve been involved in launching big profile products and it’s not for the faint-hearted!
So when is a good time to launch a new service with such huge press fanfare? How ready does it have to be?
I would suggest that it should be able to cope with a huge tug on servers, and that “about” & “feature” pages should return information and not 404 errors.
But what of the rest? What is the baseline for pushing the button? What are the “go/no go criteria”?
And how long will you give it before you try Cuil again?
