Weeknote #-7 (week 7, 2010)

Regarding my new business, the last week was quite short because I went to visit my girlfriend and my daughter at their health resort at the Baltic Sea on Wednesday.

I’ve decided to change our web meeting service provider. Up until now, I’d used GoToMeeting to do webinars and online trainings. It worked okay; only an audio problem that made people sound like the Chipmunks when I used an USB headset on the Mac had been annoying me for some weeks. Not until Acquia recently switched from GoToWebinar to WebEx, I realized that an important part of our customer base couldn’t join our webinars in the first place: There’s no Linux client for GoToMeeting. It didn’t take me much more time to decide to switch to WebEx, too.

For starters, we won’t incorporate. I discussed my plans with my tax consultant and she advised me not to incorporate early on but start lightweight as a sole proprietorship company.
