Empressr crosses the pond

Wednesday, October 8th, 2008

We (myself and Mike Davis, @globalcitizen) started a European tour last week. We started out joining Werner Vogles (the awesome dude that runs tech at the very cool company Amazon), for lunch and then attended his birthday party that evening. It is amazing to spend time and interesting conversations about technology and life with the CTO of a major global company, what an experience. I posted some pictures on my flickr.

Next Stop was Ibiza Spain to meet with the guy that puts on one of the largest music conferences in Europe, more to come on this.

Mike had to go back to the states on Tuesday, Empressr is sponsoring SM4SC this Friday October 10, at the Harvard Club in Boston, he will be speaking there, it’s a great cause and I encourage you to attend. Me, I headed to London. Today October 8 I’m at fowa (future of web apps), Empressr will have a stand showing off our newest version of Empressr and I will be presenting at one of the university sessions on Thursday 15:45-16:50 Business and Tools track.

Roadshow: This week, Techcrunch40 then Flashforward

Thursday, September 20th, 2007

I’m at the third show of the Empressr Fall roadshow. It has been a hectic week, Monday and Tuesday in San Francisco for the Techcrunch40, where Empressr was part of the demo pit. Then the red eye to Boston Tuesday for the opening of FlashForward. Today is the second day of Flashforward and I have been demoing the new Flex interface of the Empressr Composr. The Composr is where you create and edit presentations. It looks great, everyone I’ve spoken with loves it and can’t wait to start using it. It looks and performs like an application that resides on your computer, but is 100% browser based. We have greatly expanded the media capabilities and added a ton of new features, I’ll follow up with a post shortly covering the new features.Check out the “Sneak Peek” empressr of the new interface that I posted a few days ago.We are planning a private beta release in about 4-6 weeks. If you are interested in being part of the private beta sign up now. People that sign up before the end of September will have the opportunity to participate in the private beta of Composr.
