Wow, did I ever get behind in posting, I was doing so well keeping up the info stream…  Well I had a pretty good reason I’ve been heads down in code on a tool I have wanted to release for some time now.  It’s a relatively small tool (though I could see it morphing into something bigger) but one I think will be very useful dealing with some of the data rot we all face as we interact with more people and do more things.

I am not releasing a lot of details at the moment but I am pushing hard to release a small beta to a test group then the full on application soon after that.  It’ll be a desktop application (yup they still exist) and will release first for the Apple platform.  This is a new way of deploying for me as I have always released for the Windows platform first (and in most cases only) but working with my new MacBook Air has inspired me to go Mac first. 

While I am not sure of the pricing model I may go with something like the Freemium plan outlined by Fred Wilson way back in 06.  One thing is for certain it won’t be an ad-driven model as it doesn’t fit the application, maybe a business pay / consumer free model. It’s odd… coding seems simple compared to finding the right revenue model in today’s marketplace.
