My guess is, like everyone else the people at Wallop wanted to get something out there--so they could point to a specific milestone to say, "We've made some progress here."

And to me, seems like in business and software development today, you don't have to have everything absolutely figured out and nailed down before you start to talk about it. That's how you get feedback, hear what people think about things. Before you invest lots of time and energy into them.

It also goes to show that just because You have launched the latest service/something at your library back in 2003--your customers might not have heard about it then. So when you do another "ta-da" news release in 2006, you may be reaching new people for the first time...who will be excited and eager to learn more!

I found this amusing - Put in your email address to be notified when they launch and if you live over in the UK, spend an entertaining few minutes wondering why you cannot put an @ sign in you email address. Then realise that these folks have not figured out that there are different keyboard layouts in various parts of the world. Doesn't exactly inspire confidence does it. A bog standard web form would have sufficed, but Nooo - they had to go do something cool.
