Back on track

The LEC is printed and is being folded and stapled today. So now I owe humongous amounts of money to our local xerox shop (along with everybody else) and a major project is about out of the way.

Not sure how to contact you guys so I thought I'd try this...

I just launched my new site, SwitchPlanet.com, and we are currently in private beta while we work the bugs out.

Basic concept...recycle the things you have and no longer need to get the stuff you want all for free(no sign up fees, no transaction fees, no monthly fees, etc.). Because it's free we give members the option to make a donation that goes into our SwitchFund that gets distributed among charities and non-profits. Members can also create profiles and socialize and all that great stuff.

I'm a one man shop, with a dev team, but no funding or marketing "guru" to help get the word out. So I'm looking for some popular blogs to help me reach the masses.

A quick look into the future…I'm looking to add SMS member verification before we come out of private beta and then start rolling out new features like friends and groups as well as branch out into the UK and into other switch-able items like books, tools or whatever else the members ask for during the open beta period.

So I would love it if you could take a look at my site and offer up a review for your readers. If you're interested let me know and I will get you a login ASAP.

I would also like to welcome 100 of your readers to take part in the private beta and of course once we come out of private beta everyone can join at that time.

I'm available for interview to answer any questions you might have.

Would you bring a couple of copies of the LEC to knitting this Saturday? I think Brie wants to get one.
