I thought it was kinda neat to see, but point taken - gone (though the URL
still exists for the curious).

...no more than linking to Technorati does. Or any other tag vendor, for
that matter. I'm just trying to level the playing field - one link to link
'em all, so to speak. Fool's errand, maybe - but I've gotta try.

We don't really have an API, per se - just a simple form at this point. That
said, I'm hoping the developer will be attending the forthcoming TagCamp in
San Jose (wherein gada.be is a sponsor).

Thanks for the nod, Roy. We're getting additional servers this weekend, just
in case we get featured on Digg again (or, heaven forbid, Slashdot).
