To be spam, or not to be spam: that is the question.

We found that some of our invitation e-mail is in spam holder of private beta participants, especially their e-mail address are xxx.yahoo.com. I do not know why such things happen. It may be our domain ‘gazopa’ is very new and servers regard us as Unknown senders. I also heard same things have happened at other start-ups.

Since so many requests of invitation are arriving us, we issue invitations in turn. If you request us to issue a private beta invitation and no invitation has arrived so long time, please contact us ‘contact

New YouTube Video

We uploaded two new GazoPa Videos to YouTube. One is for drawing and the other is for plugin.

You can search for images by your drawing. I saw one blog that the blogger drew notebook PC and got nice search results. I tried boots, T-shirts etc by myself. Just try it!

Search by plugin is also a nice and useful feature. You just right-click on the image and similar images are retrieved. I hope people use this feature routinely. Installing plugin is very simple step and you just follow the instruction on your display. Also you would know how to do it after seeing our video.

Please watch our video and give us your feedback.

Join the Berkeley Digital Media conference (>play)

We’ll join the Berkeley Digital Media conference (>play) at Haas School of Business, UC Berkeley on Nov15 http://playconference.org/. It is also because one of their staffs knew us at TechCrunch50. It’s the first time for us to participate in the conference at school. I’m very excited that we can meet promising students and professionals. GazoPa provides cutting edge experience and I’d like to talk with persons who are very sensitive to new technology and service. I also envy students in West Coast for their chance to touch and feel new trend directly. These atmospheres encourage entrepreneurship. It’s one of the reasons that I like West Coast, although I always suffer from jet lag.

Meet us at >play on Nov15.
