We’ve gone stealth mode.
At this stage in a project it’s hard to talk about what we’re working on because we don’t want to tip our hand and there’s nothing to show. But for history’s sake, we’ve got an app, an app, and a widget in the pipeline.
The widget is all done and just waiting for a massive transfer to S3. App #1’s prototype is completed (only took a few hours) and was almost released, but were holding off a few weeks to “formalize” it.
We’re working round the clock on app #2. There’s a couple of big milestones at the end of next week that we’re trying to be ready for. Depending on how things flow, we may even release app #2 to a limited circle. Considering we broke ground on it only a week ago, I’m curious if we can pull something of by then.
Major YC karma mojo for us if we do.
So the big news this week is we finally acquired cloudskipper.com. I’ve been hooked on this name since we started our migration from Mixwit, but the domain was already taken. Fortunately, the previous owner was a great guy and open to letting it go. I’ve been holding my breath (and tongue) until this transfer was complete so I could start talking about our project. Although cloud.tv is our company brand and destination, our core application is called Cloudskipper. But like any new app, it’s good to lock down the dot-com address from the beginning. I can check that off now =)
This week we also finalized the alpha for Mixwidget (the open source mixtape based on Mixwit) so I could finally move on to prototyping Cloudskipper. Mike’s goal is to have something to show people by SXSW in March so we’ll be building the prototype quickly.
For now, I’m just stoked that I’m finally free to show off the logos I came up with earlier this month. I’m very happy with the design, which was probably the easiest type-conversion I’ve done yet. Here’s the results:
You’ve reached the end… and the beginning. Thanks for playing. On we go…
