Jason Calacanis has just used to his blog to chew out his sales team:


Wow! Amazing coverage of E3 team Joystiq!!! (with the assist from team Engadget) resulted in over 1M page views yesterday. Huge...

[ Note: As a publisher I'd rather have the quality without the sales, than the sales without the quality.... but we gotta get both lined up for next year.
