Some big updates to the mailing list were just added. First off, we added flash based widgets that you can paste on any website to collect mailing list members. They fit great in an external blog or in your MySpace page. Second, we revamped the way we collect location information. The new system works with Zip/Postal codes so they are much more accurate that the old region list we had. This will let us do things like send mailouts within 100 miles of a city, for example. Finally, the mailing list form now asks visitors if they want to receive notifications to their cell phone. We'll be implementing cell-friendly messaging to the mailing list soon, so you can start collecting their info now. Look for an improved sending interface next week so that you can take advantage of this new member information. Let us know what you think!
