As many of you know, I’ve been focused on a new digital music venture for about 2 years now, starting with a pretty “web 1.0” path (write business plan, create financial model, talk to VCs) and subsequently wising up to a more pragmatic approach (tap friends and 401k, build and iterate on product, attract people to site).
I’ve been working with a talented group of friends over the last year to get this new service, called 8tracks, off the ground. We launched an alpha version of the site at the beginning of the year. Informed by feedback, our team — including our first full-time developer, Rich Caetano — launched a beta version of 8tracks about a month ago. We’ll be bringing in new users over the next 2 weeks, before public release a week from Friday, on August 8th.
The new 8tracks blog is up and running, and our first substantive entry explains more about 8tracks.
Please check it out and let us know what you think!
