Well, I’ve been a bit consumed with getting our software into Alpha as of late. I took a quick look at Bloglines yesterday and saw 3,000 odd unread posts. Even this number seemed to be limited by Bloglines’ 200 message limit per feed (which has been hit by about a dozen feeds). Anyway, I’ve got some catching up to do…
As for our progress… we’ve had our website up for a couple of months and we’ve been kicking it around a bit. I still hate navigating through the text of the site, but I feel that the Demos finally do their job; although, like all things I do, they’re a little long winded. Anyway, here is a link to our demo about CozmoTV and CozmoTV Networks (which we should be releasing early next year). This week I’m going to spend some more time talking to people about the site and getting people ready for our product launch (which looks like it’s probably going to occur in mid August.)
The application is coming along beautifully. We made some last minute changes to the interface which has pushed back our ultimate delivery date by a couple of weeks, but the changes have been well worth the effort and delay. I’m really excited to get some feedback from the community on the project. The plan is to release to a group of Alpha’s in the next few weeks (basically friends and family), before releasing it to the Beta’s that have signed up through our site. If you have an interest in participating, simply click on the big yellow button that says “Sign up for our Beta” on the right hand side of our site. You can’t miss it. (And we really are going to give away a TiVo to someone. Since the Beta list is still less than 150 people, your chances of winning are pretty solid.)
We also got a mention in the San Jose Mercury News a couple weeks back as a result of an Elevator Pitch that I tagged for Fred Wilson. Not exactly what we had planned, but we’ll take the free (if premature) PR.
The whole CozmoTV team (all two of us) is really looking forward to changing the way people think about TV. I think you’re going to like what we’ve done.
