TalkFloor is the creation of John Simonson from Webstream Dynamics [also author of Flooring Insights & Tips blog] and Dave Foster, of FloorRadio.
Here's how John and Dave describe the site:
"Who is TalkFloor.com?
TalkFloor is the vision of two flooring guys. One guy with a microphone (that's Dave Foster of FloorRadio) and one with a mouse (that's John Simonson of Webstream Dynamics). We felt there is a real need for a great flooring industry web portal to keep flooring professionals up to date on the latest happenings in the flooring industry. A web site that is totally committed to bringing the latest news and audio interviews, as well as product videos, expert blogs, resource guide, marketplace, industry events, job opportunities and lots more exciting things. If it is happening anywhere in the flooring industry you will find it here first!!"
Key words: web portal and expert blogs. That what makes TalkFloor particularly unusual. The first flooring industry portal to feature blogs!
Here's the visual lineup [I know the images are small - Can you pick me out?] And, more detail on the TalkFloor blogs, which cover a wide range of topics.
