- Propulsive Start-off – A good website with a great Launch makes a Deadly combination. A GigiOm backing and followed media & web publicity will definitely add to the OStatic ‘s reach.
Why it may prove to be a Web struggler !
- Healthy Competitors – When it’s about Open source Blogs, there are some other ones which are already there in the market and having their decent presence on the web : TheOpenforce , TheOpenroad , Rand($thoughts)
- Lacks conventional market – Inspite of Open source, being a significant player in IT industry, OStatic still has to grow in a situation where the majority follows the Proprietary softwares and technologies
- Core concept – Core concepts are good but miss out from attracting the masses. An Open source technology blog has a market but a limited one. One shouldn’t expect OStatic to someday attract a huge traffic like Wired because of being non-generic approach.
