We’ve been relatively quiet recently, so we wanted to share an update.
After completing an Alpha test of AEP we had some ideas which we felt would be good to explore incorporating into the first release. So we put development on hold for a while, reducing expenses while we figured this out. The result is that we now have a refined plan that we are excited to share with you, as well as a few new members who we are welcoming to our team.
The role of VP of AEP Development has been divided into two positions. We brought in two new employees to drive the completion and future development of AEP.
Bill Seitz is our new AEP Product Manager. He’s responsible for our strategic plans and coordinating the daily execution of those plans. He has built the technology/teams for 4 internet startups in the past 15 years (and he’s an ex band-geek.)
Rob Capili is our new AEP Marketing Manager. He’s responsible for the details of design and communications, and will be hiring a Community Manager to help artists get the best use out of AEP. He comes from a dance background and, among other things, was on the Dance/USA Board of Directors and served on the Dance/USA Technology sub-committee.
During this time we also made changes to our Board of Directors and added to our Advisory Board. You can read about both those groups on the “Boards” tab of Misnomer’s site.
We expect to go into Beta test mode in January, with our public release in March. We’ll have a separate announcement shortly about our new product plans.
You’ll be reading more frequent posts from all of us here, and we are excited to share the next steps of this process with you.
That’s the word from AEP.
