NoteShare is now shipping
It's appropriate that we're making this announcement on our company's web log site first before the press releases go out. In fact, I'm working in NoteShare right now while creating today's blog post. It's "way of life" software for me when it comes to outlining, thinking, writing and organizing. NoteShare has all the same information processing capabilities of NoteTaker but with the enormous power and potential of instant sharing (peer-to-peer) seamlessly built-in.
My new NoteShare-based workflow model is a three step sequence consisting of creating the notebook, sharing the notebook and collaborating on the notebook. It's just so easy now to brainstorm and work from the desktop and then shift right into sharing mode with users who may or may not be in the same room or building or even the same time zone. I can't adequately describe the moment you first start sharing and then see or hear an alert that another NoteShare user has opened the notebook you're sharing. It's magical to say the least especially if they're half away around the globe.
NoteShare 1.0 is just the start of an innovative year ahead for AquaMinds. Our cross-platform development is moving rapidly now as NoteShare Express (our universal solution for working with shared notebooks) will be our next big product technology release this year. We continue to work on NoteTaker for the desktop with new generation versions planned as well. We're very excited about NoteShare and what's coming next. And by the way, it's a Universal Application.

Many thanks are in order especially to our NoteShare development team led by Mike McNabb with Mark Goldstein. And as always, great support and on-demand technical assistance from Noah Edelstein. This has been a major effort for the company and we're excited to finally reach the summit of this project mountain.
We also want to thank a number of people who have given us inspiration, ideas and the challenge to do something that others said was either too difficult or too costly to attempt. Although you know who you are I would like to publicly thank and acknowledge some of the incredible people that have been working and testing NoteShare with us including David Mash, Doug Snow, Marc Gerstein, Ruben Puentedura, William Barnes, Kevin Sheridan, Maxx Judd, Gerry Smith, Dan Shafer, Rich Ramos, Bob Trikakis, Richard Dreves, Jim Chiavacci, Richard Siegel, Charles Jacobina, Melanie Chasse, Stefani Langol, Keith Lew and all the early access, pre-release users who joined us in the last month. NoteShare has truly been a collaborative effort of many.
