I'm in Northampton MA right now, at Joe Edelman's place. It's nice to be out of the City. It's even nicer to see Joe excited about Groundcrew. The guy who worked on the user interfaces for Blogger and Twitter is doing the design and there are some cool opportunities. It also looks like the project has taken a clear direction on one side - while leaving open the community side for later. The main problem is the cost of text messages, which should have been free by now. It's insane that many people are paying more than half a dollar for sending a kilobyte worth of data in 2009.
