The Race is on!
That can only mean one thing...we are in total crunch mode to get the next version of our platform tested and out the door.
The impending upgrade to the gofish platform will incorporate many new and exciting features that tap deeper into a very rich search and discovery experience for consumers. First and foremost it will be the absolute largest search engine for legally downloadable media (audio, video, mobile, games) in the world by a long-shot. Secondly, we think consumers should be able to search and sample any and all kinds of media before they buy, as well as receive recommendations and explore other people's affinities very simply.
We continue to work away here and are recruiting some super additional talent for our engineering team as well.
In the coming days you you should see one web-search engine launching their integarted version of our platform, and one somewhat larger partner launching with our technology soon afterwards.
Looking forward to comments and product ideas from the peanut gallery.

GoFish Technologies Launches!
Michael Bazeley from the San Jose Mercury News wrote a pretty good summary of our technology here , although it does sound from the article that we are really focusing more exclusively on the downloadable music market, in actuality the mobile content category already represents a marketplace that is more than 10X the size of downloadable music.
For those of you who are not familiar with the GoFish search technology, we have been working hard to create the most effective union between the world of search (Google, Yahoo, MSN, etc.) and the rapidly expanding world of downloadable digital media (music, videos, ringtones, games, etc.)
The focus of the business and our technology is largely based on our (the GoFish Team) experience in digital media, and understanding of the search industry. There are a few fundamentals that shape our approach.
- The demand for downloadable media among consumers continues to grow
- The volume of digital media available for consumers to download is growing very rapidly
- The number of merchants/brands who want to sell digital media downloads to consumers is also growing at a very rapid pace
- Currently, over 20% of all searches at popular web search engines are for entertainment media oriented terms.
- Search as it relates to entertainment oriented downloads differs dramatically from traditional web-search both in terms of technical/business requirements and consumer experience.
At the www.gofish.com website you will see a link at the bottom of the page to a "GoFish-enabled" web search engine (www.zenkicker.com), this is the most direct example of how our technology will be used in the search world. Fundamentally, any web search engine can integrate our digital media results into their existing search framework, resulting in a consumer experience that returns more relevant search results and allows the search engine to expand into a profitbale category of data without changing their core business model.
