Fred Wilson suggested Zemanta on his blog, so I’m giving it a shot. I’m going to try it out by writing a few random sentences.

So far the photo results don’t match up. A lot of Freds or Wilsons, but not Fred Wilson. The links are popping up good things though (see below).

What if I wrote about the fact that it’s 90 degrees out here in Boston today? Hot and Humid. And that I’m trying to decide whether to go for a run or a bike ride.

Looks like it may need more specificity? How about that the Celtics rock and I hope they win tonight. Will Larry Bird show up to a game?….[updating results, please hold] There we go! Ah, good, Pierce will play tonight (he’s such a drama queen). But shoot, no old school photos of the big #33…. I was definitely hoping for that…[update]…..

Prognosis? Zemanta, on first run through, looks like it’ll be a lot of fun. However, I’m wondering why it substituted the photo of Boston that I inserted with the Celtics logo instead of added it afterwards. And what does this button do at the corner of my editing space?

UPDATE TO POST: See the comment below from Jure Cuhalev of Zemanta…. talk about customer support and PR! So far, experience has been flawless…

    Thanks for giving us a try. Firstly, our suggestions engine works better with more coherent text, writing random sentences doesn't help the machines :)

    The image was substituted because right now we support only one image insertion, we're working on extending the image gallery to be able to insert more images and also have greater control.

    Lastly, reblog in the bottom then allows others to “reblog” your post, give you proper attribution in their blog and continue the conversation across the blogosphere.

    If you have any problems or just ideas, we have a great forum at getsatisfaction.com/zemanta or just drop me a mail – jure@zemanta.com
