Official Prosper Blog Coming Soon

It started with an eagle eyed lender on the prosper.org forum spotting an interesting tid-bid in a Prosper job posting on the San Francisco Craigslist employment area. Prosper is looking for a temp to fill in for a while, and running the Prosper Company Blog (noted as forthcoming) was one of the job responsibilities.

Prosper has now confirmed to me that they will be launching an official blog in the near future. This does have interesting implications for how they intend to communicate to their users, but the proof of the pudding is in the eating.

I'll note that the software recently deployed for the new forums, Community Server, also has a blog component to it, so we can probably expect this platform to be running the blog as well.

I sure hope they use a tested blogging platform... Wordpress for example.

It will likely be a huge flop like the Forum transition! Prosper is dying due to poor management decisions.

You know, you could just ask me to write about the legal mess.
