Posterous is a new blogging service that has taken the “Simplify” process to its ultimate conclusion, and given email a much needed boost in the process.
Interactive agency Big Spaceship is on board, and Newsweek is writing about it.
The new kid on the block is Posterous, which made its debut last week and is already making Tumblr seem archaic by bypassing the need to go to a Web site to write a post—or even embed a video. On Posterous, users start an account and publish new posts entirely via e-mail. All you need to do to launch a new blog—and update it—is send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. In its first week 6,000 bloggers registered with Posterous, according to cofounder Sachin Agarwal.
