Checking my server stats today, I found a slew of referrals from searches for some combination of “Convio” and “GetActive” close to two dozen, with most coming from Google but several from Technorati, the blog search engine. Considering that I only wrote about the merger mid-afternoon yesterday and that the stats updated at 4 this morning, that’s a BUNCH of activity for such a short period of time. Another indicator, along with email traffic on advocacy lists, that this development in the industry has people interested and in many cases concerned. Personally, I’m not a huge fan of losing diversity among vendors and also don’t want to lose the good qualities of GetActive, a company I’ve been using for two years and several of whose employees I’ve come to know well. We’ll see how this one shakes out.
