Exclusive First Interview with Woopra Co-Founders

I was honored to be the first to interview Elie Khoury and Jad Younan, co-founders of , the exciting new web analytics program currently in beta. We were at the LT Pact Conference in Las Vegas.

The interview is featured in this week’s WordPress Podcast with Charles Stricklin. We talked about Woopra and the Woopra WordPress Plugin.

Woopra is currently under private beta testing and will be approving more beta testers soon, as resources become available. Elie and Jad shared some of the new features they have in mind for the Woopra WordPress Plugin including the ability to track your blog stats and analytics from within the WordPress Administration Panel, as well as with the desktop client program and through the Woopra Members Page on their site. The Plugin makes it very easy to add Woopra to your WordPress blog, too.

This was the first interview Elie and Jad had done in English after having arrived in the country from Lebanon only a few days before. They were nervous about their English, but both speak it fluently and were delightful to talk to. I’ll have more interviews coming up with them over the next few months.

    @ Kerry Webster:

    We all did – do! It was so hot there – for me, but even Jad and Elie said it was too warm. 😀

    I love Woopra……is there a self help group for it yet?

    @ Kris @ Fresh Focus:

    Self help group? That sounds like it is a Woopra addiction recovery group. 😀 The Woopra forums are filled with people helping each other learn how Woopra works, and there is a new friendfeed for Woopra Members with chat rooms.
