Population Statistic: Read. React. Repeat.
Sunday, October 14, 2021


It’s time to lift the veil, such as it were.

I’ve been doing some behind-the-scenes work with the team starting up The 8trk Project, chiefly on the business-development and marketing side. That’s recently included a smattering of posts to the official blog. I chose “free_agent” as my moniker there, a double-entendre referring to both my role with the venture and my relationship with regards to “head coach”, who’s one of the founding partners.

What’s 8trk about? As I’ve alluded in previous posts here, it’s an attempt to bring the worlds of social networking and music enthusiasm together. How we bring that together is already an evolving process, and it’s fascinating to see how all the pieces are falling into place — in both positive and not-so-positive directions, depending on everyone’s perspectives.

As the post just prior to this one indicates, I’ll start cross-posting entries from the 8trk Blog to here. I don’t know that I’ll do it consistently; while I plan to markedly increase entries there, they won’t always be a good fit on PopStat. Besides, in the short time that I’ve been posting there, I’ve tried to cultivate a different, more off-the-cuff blog voice for 8trk, so it makes sense in my mind to limit the crossover. We’ll see.

More details as I deem appropriate. It’s my first real experience with a Web startup — let alone a Web 2.0 startup — so I’m really soaking things in at this stage. Where it goes is almost besides the point right now.

  3. Break a leg (as they say in theater)! I hope this really takes off. Living in San Francisco I’ve seen people really fly with startups. Just remember to have fun with it ;)

  4. Honestly, it can wait until my doctoral qualifying exams are finished. I’m exactly halfway through today.
