Apologies to Technorati

This morning when I checked my e-mail I found a note from Liz Westover sent to the Technorati Developers’ e-mail list. Liz mentioned some changes to the site David Sifry would announce later in the day but the developers received early notice.

One of the features mentioned was very similar to feature I knew existed behind-the-scenes on the Technorati site. Something anyone could enable but was unpublicized and not publicly known. Tantek Çelik and Richard Ault let me preview a new site feature and I was supposed to keep my mouth shut since the feature was not yet public.

Well I saw the related item was public and assumed it was okay to post about the unannounced feature. This information was not yet public and not ready for public consumption, and I apologize for releasing that information prematurely.
