I’ve been starting lately to send emails to our members after 9 months of being in the dark. It defiently brings out the good and bad out of people as i really don’t want to email people that don’t want to get emails. My point is that now that we actually are starting to send emails we are going to try and get more orginized maybe 2 times a month with the updates of the last two weeks(besides our prime members that we will bug more often as we want them to get there value out of the dollers they invest in us.
Speaking about spam we have this blog for less then a month and i already have 40 comments i need to filter through to figure out whats spam and whats real(mostly spam so if your message is mixed in there somewhere but i’ll get up to speed in the next 2-3 ). Ahh yea my point i was looking for something to block spammer from entering there frustrating messages and i found it ‘NuCaptcha’ very cool – personally i’m the guy that never knows what the old captcha words are and need to try it 20 times until i get through or give up. i love this new concept(new to me) its an ad that has integrated into it a few letters that you just need to type as you watch an ad for something I like it very smart idea – we could of done something cool in flash.
I know its the CS5.5 mad days so i shouldn’t talk about anything but that but if you know me you know that buzz never really maters to me even if i’m really happy to play with new toys in the end of the day our core learning is way more importent then anything else as with it you can use any tool at any time.
Last note i was talking with a friend about how our site really needs a good slogen, originally it was ‘School is in’ but i don’t think anyone cared for it (as i’m not really a copy writer) and then it was ‘Not another Wanky tutorial site’(reflects my personality but i don’t think it touched the cord by anyone but me) and i’ve been playing with the idea of ‘Education Revolution’ i just think thats a cool thing to say even if it sounds a bit cold war words so back to the thinking… A friend said ‘Learn Flash in a Flash’ – thats kind of cool but as i ponder that i was saying to him that we don’t relaly teach in a flash our point of the site is that if you really want to learn something you need to have lesss FX and more learning. if people can’t sit down and learn the hard things so he said yea that doesn’t change the fact that by learning these things our users will get flash in a flash or be capable of flashing… i like that idea but before i go aruond and changing things again what do you think ? any ideas?
