Measure Map has been aquired by Google. I had actually read this earlier in the day, but I just received this email:
I want to share some important news with our earliest users of Measure Map.
Since its inception, my colleagues and I have seen tremendous potential for Measure Map to influence how people blog, and how they understand participation on the Web. We have always expected it to be big, and as such, our desire was to give Measure Map its start and then send it out into the world to grow and evolve into a strong, meaningful application.
Through the dedication of a fantastic team, along with your tremendous support in the form of feedback, feature requests, and overwhelmingly positive comments, have built a product that is fundamentally different from every other analytics application available today. We’re both grateful and proud.
So I said there was news, and here it is: I’m writing you to announce that Measure Map has been acquired by Google, effective today. For the near term, you will see no difference in its operations. In the not so distant future, you can expect great things from this acquisition. We couldn’t be happier to find such an ideal home for Measure Map, and are thrilled at the possibilities.
I currently use both Google Analytics and Measure Map to track statistics of my sites, but this site has always been my test bed. I would like to see more analytic type of functionality with the format Measure Map tracking, although lately the comment tracking has not been working for me. I also hope that the statistics RSS will gain some more functionality.
