#INTERNET Ah, we're back! Like we said, we were just "chilling out" for like 3 years. Feels good to have the team back writing. Still us three: Chuck, Benjamin, and Virgil. Got new interviews coming up, and hopefully we'll be posting on a regular basis, who knows. We also interviewed each other, check: CHUCK, BENJAMIN, VIRGIL...

Launch day! INDISTR, Beta 1.0!

And it’s here… Nervous, absolutely. Excited, absolutely. Curious to see what first day sign-up numbers look like?! Honestly, I would love it if I could force myself NOT to look at those for like a week - cause I’m going to obsess over it for these first few days - and the truth is that, its small time organic growth with something like this, so it won’t be super huge. Even though it would be awesome if it was, ha. Either way, starting a ‘real’ business has been quite a trip. I have run really, really large web projects in the past - even some that felt like their own businesses - but none that relied solely on the public’s whims. Especially musician’s whims. So this once presents new challenges. I’d like to note to all that this is indeed our ‘beta’ and that being privately ‘micro-funded’ as I call it has its pluses and also has a few negatives that you might not think of. And no, I am never 100% satisfied with anything - and the design/interface if no exception to this rule - we are already working on phases 2 of this. Either way, I love it…this ‘beta’ will grow, change, stretch, bend, mold, and probably break a few times - but I really believe in it, and I am absolutely thrilled with the ‘engine’ behind the payment piece that I think artists will love. I got a handful tricks up my sleeve. Thanks to all who helped during the process - a huge thank you to my investors. So yeah…here is to risk, reward, and sleepless nights. ***alright Chuck or Virgil, post something today so this doesn’t look like such shameless promotion! This post was longer than I wanted it to be…
