Hello World!

July 19th, 2006 by Adam

Adam at DeskWelcome to the Exbiblio blogs!

I’m Adam Behringer, and I’ve been asked to throw open the doors of Exbiblio, introducing you to our team and the work we are doing. We’ll have plenty of opportunity to dive into our ambitious plans to transform the experience of interacting with paper documents, but if you want a sneak peek, take a look at our website.

I would describe myself as an entrepreneur and a creator. I also play piano and I like to apply the improvisational and collaborative ideas of a small group jazz ensemble to business and software design. For the past month or two at Exbiblio, I have been a part of a software team that is rapidly prototyping sample applications of our technology for our internal use as we quest to find the critical utility that will be the core of our future product.

We’ve also engaged british business journalist Hugh Fraser to blog his perspective of our work. Hugh is a fabulous writer and it will be fun to have an outside perspective represented on the blogs.

I also wanted to send a shout out to Timothy Appnel for handling many of the technical details in getting this blog system launched. Thanks Tim!

Lastly, I believe I speak for all of us when I say that the “success” of this blog will depend on the quality of the conversation we can have with our readers and the community. I encourage you to ask questions, challenge our assumptions, share your experiences, and join us in the quest to bring new life to paper documents.

    Thanks Grant. I’ve always enjoyed your blog as well.

    For those who haven’t seen see Grant’s “Home Office Lawyer” blog, it is an interesting look at the issues facing a lawyer responsible for his own technology and environment. Actually, Grant’s observations apply to almost any home based business.

    At Exbiblio, we are playing around with some “office productivity” applications of our technology which have great potential for professionals, so stay tuned!
