June 29 - Sorry
for the gap between updates but we've been busy. We've launched,
or are about to launch, three good-sized Web sites (Alan
Brasington Network, New Paltz, NY; Lady
of the Lake Learning Systems, Phoenix, AZ; and ShootingStar
Gallery, Kittery, ME). All three have secure e-commerce areas
and Alan Brasington Network incorporates RealPlayer streaming video
clips. They will be live by mid-July at the latest.
like to bid a fond farewell to yourphotos.com.
While the concept of allowing the general public to create and publish
their own photo albums on the Internet might be a good one, we are
not a marketing company and never brought the idea past the development
stage. More out of curiosity than anything else, we decided to put
the business up for auction on Ebay, and lo' and behold, it sold.
We wish the best of luck to the purchaser.
Finally, we'd like
to welcome The
Barash Group, our first New York City agency, to our growing
list of interactive development shops contracting our services for
back-end development. We're assisting in the development of dynamic
and administrative features for a multi-billion dollar investment
firm. We'll keep you posted on a launch date.
I'd like to express my enthusiasm for Ebay. We listed yourphotos.com
because we just had to "see what all of the fuss was about,"
figuring no one would find the listing and bid on it (you know there
are over 2 million auctions going on, on any given day). But people
did find it, and we're really impressed with the whole operation.
It was easy to register, easy to list an item and we received terrific
support during the whole auction process. Try it and you'll understand
why they are such a hot commodity.
