Glassboard Business Plan Follow-Up

Okay, it’s probably not strictly accurate to say we don’t have a business plan or model, as reported yesterday. We do. We have a bunch of details to fill in, though.

The gist: free app, no advertising, and things-to-charge-for. We haven’t worked out the details on the things-to-charge-for part, but we have a bunch of ideas. (And are open to more, of course.)

In other words, it’s a fairly traditional idea. Not about “monetizing eyeballs” — it’s about creating quality software that people like and selling additional somethings that people will pay for.

There’s a follow-up on the blog.
