I haven't been around for a while, so I'm not sure how things are going on the 'Vine. Has the signal:noise ration gotten any better? It's sad that development has slowed so far down. While there are still many great unmatched features, lack of development implies that many of the earliest inefficiencies and suggestions haven't been addressed.
At the time of the sale, Newsvine was promising to integrate some of those web 2.0 features into the main MSNBC properties. CEO Mike Davidson told ReadWriteWeb in 2007 that "over the next few years, Newsvine technology and content will make its way onto msnbc.com, and vice-versa where it makes sense." Has that actually occured? Let's check in with Newsvine to find out.
