    Associate Press gives a shout out to

    Happy Friday. I wanted to share some more good news about eGuiders. Yesterday afternoon a story about the site came out in the Associated Press. Jake Coyle, the writer of the article, got some great quotes from Jerry Stiller and Anne Meara. Many thanks to Jake for getting the human element of our story. I don't know, but I'm thinking a Pulitzer Prize could be in his future for this piece... The article has since been picked up by over 100 news outlets in North America.

    Marc Ostrick & on Fox Business Network

    Today, I was interviewed on Fox Business Network live via satellite from Los Angeles to discuss the launch of It was one of the most unnatural and anxiety provoking experiences I have had in a long time. But I have to admit it was still a fun challenge.

    It's tough to stare directly into a camera (with a 1970s smiley face taped on top) and pretend like I am talking to a person who I can't see. I had an earpiece jammed into my ear and could only hear their tinny audio - the audio feed sounded as if it was coming from China.

    Overall, it went well, but the two hosts, Tom Sullivan and Cheryl Casone I don't think visited the site over the weekend just to get the idea of what was about. They busted my balls a bit, but what do you expect at Fox. I'm just happy to have a platform to get the word out. It took a few seconds for me to loosen up a bit, but by the end I was getting the hang of it. I'm curious to hear your thoughts...

    Wow. What an exhilarating 24 hours...

    Today was a great day for, a new online video site that I launched in December. We had two really fantastic write ups from Mike Snider in the USA Today. We were also featured on ABC News and several other major publications.

    The first piece, "eGuiders cuts through clutter of a gazillion videos online" - was on the cover page of the Life section of USA Today. It establishes the mission of eGuiders as the "TV Guide for the Internet" and discussing the impetus for the site.

    The second piece - "eGuiders' human voice' leads the way to worthwhile videos" - highlights the human element that makes eGuiders unique and discusses the talent involved, including a sidebar of video suggestions from eGuiders.

    Following the USA Today article, ABC's Tech Bytes -- a consumer technology news site that is distributed to all ABC affiliates nationwide --
    featured the launch of eGuiders in a segment: "TV Guide' for Internet
    Videos - New Web site organizes the seemingly endless numbers of videos
    available online."

    eGuiders is currently one of the top tech stories on and is
    the lead segment on Tech Bytes.

    Last Friday, we were also very fortunate to have a mention in Time Magazine. The article is entitled "Viewing Outside The Box" and it looks at the various websites that are giving consumers additional choices for where they can watch their favorite programming online.

    We also got a great nod for eGuiders on David Bianculli’s blog, TV Worth Watching. The whole day was quite thrilling, full of hugs and high-fives...
