Well, it’s been quite the whirlwind debut week here at Play The Future headquarters.
On opening day, we flipped the clock by drinking champagne at 9:00 a.m. and coffee at midnight. After 18 months of planning, seeing how you guys reacted on Day One was inspiring and intoxicating, to say the least.
Over the next 48 hours, we gleefully watched hundreds of players play thousands of predictions, as billions of their brain synapses were stretched in ways they never thought a mobile application could.
And now, as we finish up our first weekend, we are taking some time to reflect on the flood of feedback you’ve given us. While the nature of our business is asking YOU questions, by far, the two most popular you’ve asked US are:
“When is the next batch of questions coming?”
“When are you coming to (insert country name here)?”
Well, here are your answers:
Initially, we were worried about overwhelming you with too many questions at one time, and/or at too many times of the day. So we decided on a thrice-daily drop:
five at 4:00 a.m. to be there when you wake up
three at 11:45 a.m. to munch on at lunchtime
and a nightcap at 9:00 p.m. to give you something to dream about
That’s the simple answer, but the truth is, given your insatiable desire for knowledge (and points!), we have since fast-tracked two items on our roadmap in response, namely:
As they say, coming soon to a smartphone near you!
2) Our first year-goal was to set up a robust marketplace somewhat quietly in Canada, and once rock-solid, roll out into the USA first, and then around the world.
The plan has stayed the same, but it looks like the timeline has accelerated somewhat. Even after five days, we realize that we’re onto something here. And if we can believe our Tweets, email and YouTube comments, so do people in the USA, and from as far away as Brazil, Australia, Japan and India.
So the answer is “We’re coming…” Don’t know exactly when, but trust us, faster than anticipated. Until then, the only solace we can offer is the catchphrase from this classic TV commercial of the ‘70s.
So here we go. We’re firing up the espressos and buttoning up the windbreakers.
We’ve got a Future to play!
