I had the opportunity to catch up with Eric Pettit from Livescribe this week as he made a whirlwind trip down under to try and get a grasp on what’s happening here. In conjunction with John Ong from the regional master distributor we had a great chat and I have to admit I came away really excited about what Livescribe is planning for this year in terms of core development, new development, and new ideas.
A couple of points stood out for me.
Firstly, Livescribe are listening.
They know there are a few things they’ve not done the best job on, and they’re committed to doing things better in the future. As I’ve commented many times here and in my direct communications with you, Livescribe’s a company that’s still relatively new and growing so it’s important we give them constructive feedback but also exercise some patience as they learn and grasp what they need to do better.
Secondly, they have a vision
They have a vision for where the Livescribe product is going that fits in with much if not all of the feedback that you’ve given us over the past 7 months. This applies across the many facets of the user community as well as those of you who want to develop applications. Some of the dates for new features mightn’t be what we’re expecting but we’re heading in the right direction.
I promised Eric I wouldn’t spill the beans so stay tuned as we work closely with Livescribe over the next 8+ months. It’s going to be an exciting year – there’s some great things being worked on.
