Empressr is heading back out on the road, first stop is at VizThink conference in San Francisco. This time I’m doing things a bit different, coming along with me is my wife and biz partner Laura, my daughter Kassandra and Victoria, a friend. VizThink is all about the visualization of ideas and information, it should be a lot of fun. Empressr is a perfect fit, and the perfect tool to assemble your visual ideas into a linear or nonlinear story. If you are interested in going see my post on the Empressr blog for a discount code
After almost a year of development it’s live, not perfect, but very cool. We will be working over the next few weeks/months to squash any bugs and add more cool features.
We are a week or two away from inviting the first users to test out the new Flex based Composr interface for Empressr. We are excited about the development of the new tool and can’t wait to get some feedback. The interface has been completely re-thought, re-designed and re-coded, we think we did an awesome job… but I’ll have to wait to find out from the people that will be using Empressr. So Sign up now and you’ll be part of the initial beta v.3 users.
