Ma.gnolia Social Bookmarking Sponsors Typo Theme Contest


SAN FRANCISCO, Ca. OCTOBER 18, 2005 – Ma.gnolia Systems, LLC, a San Francisco-based technology company developing a user-friendly social bookmarking system, has donated a grand prize of an iPod Nano to the theme contest for Ruby on Rails-based Typo blogging platform.

Though Ma.gnolia’s launch date is still several months away, the Ma.gnolia team decided to donate the prize based on a desire to promote two of the principle Ma.gnolia philosophies: supporting online communication and information sharing and contributing to the development of Web 2.0 technologies that can enhance usability and accessibility for virtually any end user.

Said Larry Halff, Ma.gnolia founder, “Of course, we at Ma.gnolia are focused on the ways in which people form communities and share information. These days, blogging is almost synonymous with community and information sharing on the web. We chose Typo for our own development blog because we like to blaze the trail with all things Ruby on Rails. When we caught wind of the Typo Theme contest, we saw an opportunity to contribute to the development of a favorite piece of software.”

Geoffrey Grosenback of, organizer of the contest, stated, “When starting the Typo Theme Contest, I wanted to attract top quality sponsors. Ma.gnolia was one of the first to respond and was absolutely awesome for donating an iPod Nano. Their support sparked immediate interest in the contest and will help motivate designers to produce top quality themes for Typo. Being sponsored by the up-and-coming Rails-powered social bookmarking site also lends credibility to the contest. I’m excited to see what develops as Ma.gnolia is released in a few months.”

The Typo Theme Contest runs until November 10th and winners will be announced shortly after. For more information on the Type Theme Contest, please visit is currently preparing for its beta launch. For more information or to join the notification list, please visit
