Organizing operations

When we first started up, I generated a list of Goals and Objectives, designed an organization, put together some processes for operating and generally fleshed out an entire organization for building and operating rVibe.

Making money in online music

There continues to be discussion around a-la-carte versus subscription online music services. Some say subscription is the future of music; I still disagree (as does 400 years of history).

Operations – $$$

As we work through some of the performance things with Beta 1 (some people would be content with it, but I am not), we’re faced with the $$$ predicament.  We’re at the point where in order to seek additional investment, we really need to turn our product out.  But the issue is this – we’ll…
