Gnip comes a-gnocking

I wanted to cover a nifty-looking service that’s just launched — Gnip.

It’s a simple premise: instead of asking every social networking service what’s going on, Gnip will tell you what’s up (they’ll even POST it to your website). They’re going to be — Atlas-style — lifting a huge weight off of social networking providers. I hope they do well.

Of course, in the interests of disclosure, I know Eric.
