October Update, plus a new face
Wow…what a rewarding three weeks its been at Unbounds. We have been away for a bit on this blog and we apologize, but it is all worth it because we have so much good news to tell you about. In a way it is good that we saved this all for one post.
For those who don’t know I am a new member of the team and have been on the team for about a month now. I had been keeping up with Unbound even when I was not on the team, and when I finally joined I was absolutely impressed at how driven and focused everyone was. After the first couple of group meetings I realized that they had so much focus on what they wanted to do and that I had to catch up if I wanted to be effective. At early stage start-ups everyone is doing everything they can to get things up and running as fast as possible. I have been doing many things, but my primarily job been spreading the word about Unbound to publishers. Since our last post we have engaged the Association of Canadian publishers and had our first in-person meeting. What a great meeting it was! We were able to make the first steps to developing what we see as a very important relationship going forward as the Association has a lot of publishers under them that we would love to get out to you guys and gals to read. Unfortunately many of the things that we talked about cannot be discussed here, but it went as good as we hoped it would, and now we are focused on the next step toward getting licensed content on our servers.
With that being said all eyes are on tech now to perfect the model and we are doing everything we can to get this going. Oh, and the other somewhat menial thing that us non-technical folks are working to get is…FUNDING! FUNDING! FUNDING! We are ready to pour some real green into this, and it gives me the shivers to see this start to actually happen.
Well thats all for now and we will do our best to keep you guys up to date with all the latest happening as they get thrown at us.
Until next time,
