James Taylor:

Exactly! Hence his wording of tentative, projected, caveat, etc. Nevertheless, he at least pointed us to a "tentative", "projected" ship date. Which is what I was stating originally.

Don't you think it would have been more transparent last October for Faithlife to give a "tentative", "projected" ship date of July or August 2016?

If and only if that was the tentative ship date that they themselves had at the time.

Well I missed this thread...

Ben, it would be helpful if you provided monthly updates, even if there is no update.  Just coming on to say, that the project has not been forgotten nor put on the back burner, that you are still actively working on it is really all that is needed.  Perhaps the first of each month for example...

We're still aiming for end of July or August (with all the previous caveats still in place Wink)

Most people get excited about the latest movie release, sequel to a novel, the latest model Corvette, etc.  We, however, are on the edge of our seats for an encyclopedia.  Our mothers would be so proud Smile

Ben, do you anticipate being able to announce anything when this ships regarding if/when any updates will be available and at what price? I seem to recall reading a long time ago that incremental updates likely would be available for this resource in the future but that nothing more specific had been worked out. Thanks.

Are we still looking at an August ship date? Would love to have this before I start fall semester.

I'll go ahead and sign up for the slot Friday to ask Ben are we there yet.  Though, judging from the server-iferous L7 issues, I'd hate to be in Ben's slippers.

I already have reading time slotted on our west coast extravaganza for Brittanica ... I'm that stupid.  I already decided which app to host it.  

Selling Brittanica was my first job. I didn't think it was possible. Then someone wanted to buy a set. I was truly shocked.

I recommend selling encyclopedias or a more modern equivalent, to learn marketing. People.  They're truly amazing.

When I left school and was desperate for a job, any job, I spent one month with a company selling Brittanica. I never sold a thing. That's when I knew sales wasn't my thing Big Smile

Yasmin, same for me!

The key marketing principle I was taught, was to walk fast.  Find the customer needing the product.  I was exhausted.

Hi all,

Obviously we're getting close to the end of August and there is no ship date on the product page yet Tongue Tied

I just sent in a request to get an updated status. I'll let you know as soon as I hear something (as you can imagine, things have been a bit hectic over the last few days!).

(I will say that I have actually seen portions of it for testing, so it is actually quite close to being complete.)

If for some reason it does go into the first week or two of September, please remember that I tried to be very clear that July-August was a very tentative prediction. 

As I said, I'll give you an update as soon as I have it.

I really do believe we're close!
