Where I've been spending my time lately

I thought I'd share with everyone what's been keeping me busy the past few months. Some folks may already know I've been working on a new LGBT social site called Friends You Know. Well, the secret is out! The site is live.

I'm pretty excited about Friends You Know. Not only do I get to work with great people, like our own Cathy Renna and Simon Aronoff, but I get to help grow a new site to benefit the LGBT community.

Friends You Know is built by the LGBT community for the LGBT community and a portion of the profits the site generates will be donated directly to LGBT causes and organizations. How much gets donated depends on all of us - the site only makes money if we use it.

And really, I didn't spend the last 4 months sweating over this thing everyday for nothing. I want to see people signing up, inviting their friends, and helping us grow it into a real online community!

So go - check it out and send us some feedback. We've got many more features planned for the next release, including instant messaging, photo tagging, and much more.

Pretty fancy there big guy. Is there any way for twitter to update my "status"?

That's a feature we want, but we're not there yet. Hopefully in the next few months. We have a long wish list, but better Twitter integration is one of them.

I have a personal account (that I need to fix up now that the site got the upgrade) and I also made one for Bilerico Project so folks can find us there.

Hey Jerame...congrats! The new site looks fantastic.
