Hunting Sploggers We Will Go, Hunting Sploggers We Will Go…

October 23, 2006

We have decided to make life easier. Thanks to Peter Cashmore for the feedback in a very insightfull conversation. Sentinel will, for the pay per month subscriptions have pre-generated DMCA and other notices that can be sent to a sploggers ISP along with a report. This will speed up the process for the user to combat the situation.

Due to liability reasons Sentinel will not automaticly send these out on the first hit. It will still require a “3 strikes your out rule”

All of the pre-canned notices and anything else we come up with that will assist will be drafted by attornies and meet to the ISP and DMCA standards. 


Invited to DEMO

October 20, 2006

I am proud to say that Blogwerxhas been invited to public launch at DEMO at their opening event in the 2007 year.

Who’s Who

October 16, 2006

Over the past few weeks I have been either contacted or been in contact with some of the major players in the blogosphere. Some of the people interested in the future of Sentinel and what it can mean to content plagiarism.

I wanted to thank people such as Robert Scoble, Peter Cashmore Johnathan Bailey and others who have given me feedback and, or encouragement. It helps to know that you are going down the right path from some of the big names out there. I would rather ask questions now then built it and ask them later.

New Resources have been added

October 16, 2006

We needed help. Easy enough to say but finding the right people is something totally different. At the start of Iwerx, Blogwerx parent company. Finding the right type of person that wasnt going to go MIA after a few weeks was to say the least, very difficult.

After finding Mark Buckman code guru and now Co-Founder. It has been just the two of us. Well we have brought on Rick Cofrancesco a good long time friend of mine with years of back-end coding. Both him and Mark will be the back-end guys making Sentinel come to life. Then there is another guy, old then all of us so he brings wisdom and creditability to the table as well as the day-to-day operations that will need to be done. Seeing as we are so small right now there isn’t a great deal to do, but having that right person there in the wings is great for when we do need it.

Getting Busy

October 16, 2006

Things have been getting very busy as of late.

  • We are close to a beta version of Sentinel.
  • We have several large entities that are very interested in Sentinels capabilities.
  • We are currently looking for seed funding.

Thats about it for now, but then again there are a million smaller parts to all of those. So we’re keeping busy.
