With apologies to NASA…the Piper has landed!
That’s right, readers! This is a momentous day: After a somewhat abbreviated beta testing phase, we have officially launched our initial “freemium” model! That’s right, Pied Piper’s robust compression-based platform is now commercially available and can be downloaded gratis from our website, the Apple Store, the HooliStore, and so on, in the hopes of selling premium services to businesses on top of that, at a somewhat later date. Huzzah!
I must say, it has been a rollercoaster ride up this point. Pied Piper has been menaced by lawsuits, city zoning inspectors, bad press, short-sighted “professional” CEOs, money problems, the incompetence of prepubescent cloud experts, fire and so on. I personally have been threatened in various ways by Gilfoyle, Erlich and anonymous voice messages from would-be assailants who in fact turned out to also be Gilfoyle and Erlich, having some fun at my expense.
And still we rise! Pied Piper’s future is so bright, one should avoid looking directly at it for prolonged periods, for fear of damaging the eyes! It is too soon to consider what I might do with my share of the billions we may soon be worth, but my blue button-down shirt is getting a bit worn at the elbows…and I have been thinking of going “non-iron”! Wheeeee!
