Why AwayFind? To escape from email (quick clip from SOB Con 2008)

May 8, 2008 by Jared Goralnick

AwayFind - away to escape...a way to be found The following is a short video that explains why I created AwayFind (and touches on how to batch your email). I delivered this as a presentation to the School of Blogging Conference in Chicago (under the parameters of 20 slides presented in 5 minutes). I hope you’ll enjoy this, and will participate in the private beta. Feel free to skip to 0:42 for the meat of the presentation…

But first, to those of you who I got to enjoy this past weekend with at SOBCon: thank you so much for your energy, passion, and discipline–you’re an inspiring bunch. I hope to more than keep in touch with many of you. Here are are my photos from the weekend.

If you’re interested in AwayFind, you can sign up in the upper right corner of AwayFind.com. Don’t worry, there’s no charge for the beta, which will go on for a while. We’re letting in folks daily and would love to hear your feedback.

You can keep track of AwayFind on Twitter by following AwayFind.

It’s long been my dream to create products to help people better enjoy (and escape from) their technology; I’ll be writing about that dream and AwayFind more in the coming months. A big thank you to my team at SET Consulting for making this a reality.

If you have any questions or comments about the product, feel free to voice them below. No need for congratulations, I’ve got a long way to go.
