EPNW: Gist makes social networks easy to manage, but will people pay for it?

In this episode of "Entrepreneurs Northwest" T.A. McCann explains how his latest startup (Gist) provides a portal, and filtering mechanism, for all the data streams people have to deal with from their friends and acquaintances. Unlike his previous ventures, Gist has been well endowed with capital by investors, and has been able to take the time necessary to build a good product before taking it to the broader public. The real challenge will be to convince users there is enough value to pay for subscriptions when Gist begins monetizing their service later next year.
