One Degree Calling

When I took iStudio to task for not having a feed, iStudio fixed the problem and let me know via a comment at One Degree within an hour of the post going live.
This morning I started wondering if any of the other web shops and interactive agencies in Canada are paying attention to the blogosphere. The scientist in me figured an experiment was in order.
So, here is a list of ten randomly selected Canadian interactive shops. Let’s see how long it takes them to spot their company name and URL and add a comment to let us all know they found this contest they didn’t even know they were participating in.
I’ll update the post with “time to reply” updates as they find us.
Results To Date:
* silverorange (1 Hour 43 Minutes)
* Dunedain (21 Hours 15 Minutes)
* Twist Image (21 Hours 45 Minutes)
* Teehan+Lax (1 Day 3 Hours)
To Be Heard From:
* Blast Radius
* Critical Mass
* Devlin
* Henderson bas
* Indusblue
* N5R
Note to our competitors: To make sure comments are legit, e-mail me from your work e-mail so I know the comment is really from the company and not from a “passionate customer” helping you out!
Note to those reading our feed: To make sure those monitoring feeds instead of blogs have a fair chance I’m posting the whole post rather than an excerpt this time.

    A ping from silverorange here – noticed this in my newreader this afternoon – I, and I believe a few others in the company have a feedster search for silverorange subscribed to. Makes a fairly decent tool for seeing what people are saying about you.

    Hi Ken, we are flattered to be included on your list . This was actually brought to my attention yesterday and I hadn’t had the chance to respond…
    While I’m responding I would like to extend an invitation to yourself and any other OneDegree readers to come and visit us at a reception we are having tomorrow:

    Late reply from iStudio here.
    Ever since I was introduced to the magic of Bloglines, I stay on top of the blogosphere…except when I’m on holidays! I’m less keen on monitoring the iStudio name than keeping on top of the online marketing/communications “big picture” – which is sometimes easy to lose when you get caught up in day-to-day work. Which is where One Degree comes in!
    Thanks for another link, Ken.
