Ryan Smith writes "I wanted to reply to Zonk's article that was posted yesterday. What no love/mention/props for the company that actually developed the mobile creation tools? Yes I mean Roundpoint, the company I work for.

I was going to make a comment to the article but I would have been torn apart by the slashdotters as an advertiser or some shady guy. So I thought I would contact the Slashdot team directly.

Been reading slashdot for years now, I also read Arstechnica and TechReport on a daily basis. I was wondering when Roundpoint's mobile efforts would be pick'd up by you guys, that WSJ aritcle yesterday did the trick I guess.

With our mobile creation tools we helped come alive along with many other mobile pages. These tools are also integrated into our mobile social networking product called The Cerkle ( We introduced it at the 3gsm conference in Barcelona but you guys never picked it up. /. really concentrate on US only, should really take a peek into the European scene more...they really are ahead technology integration wise. Contact me if you want to know more...not to mention I contacted Commander Taco almost 2 years ago now. Roundpoint was interested in doing a mobile verion for Slashdot, you guys still interested in that?

Let us know, would love to hear from the /. team! Keep up the great posts, hope to hear from you soon!
