A word of thanks
Arnab Nandi isn't exactly a household name, but his handiwork is all over the Blogosphere; it was Arnab who invented BlogSnob, the tiny text ad that gives you a random link to another blog.
Eventually, like so many such ventures, it got to be a full-time job and then some, and finally Arnab has decided to anoint a successor: Kalsey Consulting Group, which operates the TextAd exchange, will assume responsibility for BlogSnob.
I don't know how many new readers I got by way of BlogSnob; I do know that I discovered many new blogs from clicking on the random ads, and I'm grateful to Arnab for creating this little service and sticking with it long enough to make it work correctly.
