As promised in the last post, we've got quite a bit of good news to share today.
First of all, we are very pleased to announce the addition of Porter Gale, author of Your Network Is Your Net Worth and former VP of Marketing for Virgin America, to our advisory board. I met Porter nearly two years ago at a conference and eventually came to the realization that she would be a valuable person to have a conversation with regarding the vision for spherre, especially after reading her wonderful book. It was actually during that conversation that I made the decision to change the tagline and general feel of spherre, mostly in order to concentrate more on the human connections that could be possible within the unique spherre experience. Of course - we will continue to give back to your favorite charity as part of our business model as well - because that's the way it should be.
Speaking of the unique spherre experience, I would like to be transparent and admit that there has been a long delay in creating a prototype for spherre. This is because we have been through a very long line of programmers from all over the world who have either told me what we were trying to do could not be done, or otherwise tried and failed to complete the task. Therefore, I am super excited to announce that we now have a working prototype that demonstrates the unique nature of the spherre experience. Please feel free to contact me directly if you would like to see a demonstration, and I will be happy to tell you more.
And finally, big kudos to Smashing Boxes in Durham, NC for finally solving the prototype problem we were having. I am thrilled that they have agreed to be a strategic partner with spherre - and most certainly will be a huge asset for us as we move forward towards launching our first beta site. We look very forward to working with you into the future!
