We did it!
We set out to get Uncharted public in 2007. In mid December, we met that goal by showing our families and friends and getting search engines to crawl the site. We also executed limited testing during the summer (thank you to everyone who helped with that), but now the whole world can visit http://uncharted.net/ to jouney with us. Here’s a snapshot of what the site looks like:
Take some time to check it out and let us know what you think. There are features on Alligators in Idaho, hiking the Jewel Basin in Montana, Geocacheing, and more.
We’ve kept our momentum since the public release in December. We released as http://www.uncharted.us/ but have since acquired the .net URL. Now we’re focusing on the next phase, which will make it easier for you to upload content. Slowly but surely the word is getting out and we’re making more contacts that are interested in this project. Its been really exciting and I hope I can update you more often.
The biggest thing we need right now is to get the word out about the site and to get everyone’s feedback. Some of you have given us some great inputs and we wouldn’t be where we are without it. The nice thing about the web is that you can always change and adapt.
I must admit though, that turning an idea into reality on the web is not always the easiest cup of tea to drink! Still, when you look back to my earlier post that shows where we’ve come from, it truly is exciting.
