We are giving birth. Literally.
“Beta” literally translates to “son” in Hindi language. So yes, we’re in labor trying to give birth to our one ‘n only and our much awaited “son” - Moshbag beta. The only question is when?
Now I have to admit, we had initially planned to launch Moshbag in July to coincide with our birthdays (Yes, both founders are July borns!). But we both knew that it was far fetched. There are 2 reasons for this: first, we started work on Moshbag only in June this year & second, we have day jobs (this is of course to fund this project. We don’t intend to meet any Angels at this juncture & would instead prefer to meet Bootstrap Bill!)
We have a ridiculously short gestation period, going by the principles of Lean. So, we’ve compromised on a fancy UI & you won’t find a zillion features to begin with. Just the basics - artists will be able to upload their new stuff on Moshbag & subscribers will be able to signup & stay updated. That’s it!
I’m also not embarrassed at all to reveal that the entire UI was built using Weebly! It has allowed us to mock-up a quick website with limited coding skills. But don’t worry, we’ll be working on our Moshbag Baap version once we celebrate our baby shower & set things rolling. Oh, and btw, “Baap” literally translates to “father” in Hindi!
I still haven’t given out our launch date, have I? The doctors say we’re due sometime in the first week of next month, i.e. September, 2012. So here’s hoping that all goes well & we have a healthy happy Beta arriving!
You can have a look at him once we’ve confirmed the delivery. Till then, I thank you for your patience, support, & encouragement!
