2005, Were are still Here
1000 Planets, Inc. was formally incorporated on January 1, 2001 at
12:01 AM, in the state of Washington. Many did not think that we
would last this long.
1000 Planets was founded on the same formula as all of the internet
companies that went bust several years' back. When I came on board
there was a lot of hustle and bustle and expectations that 1000
Planets would make a mint real quick and move on to other things.
As a hard core realist I knew that it would never happen. If 1000
Planets was to succeed it would have to be a real company with real
expectations and goals. It would have to have a real base from which
We are not there yet and we are still trying. Too many people have
the expectations of instant success but as a person who has been
playing in this field for almost 50 years, I know better.
When the pervious CEO and founder decided to bail out, I decided that
the existing organization was worth saving and at least trying to
give it a real chance of succeeding. We are still struggling to make
it work. We have not made any real break troughs and have not built
any rocket ships yet but we are still young.
Nothing exciting happened at 1000 Planets, Inc. in 2004. People have
come and gone. All was expecting things to be done magically quick.
The 10 or so people who are actually in it for the long run have done
what they could to make progress and maybe we have. Some new plans
have been proposed and some things are in development.
