Thanks for the info, and the good advice on the mix of traditional and
Webism art on the example gallery demo, it's definitely something that
we are aiming towards doing now.
I look forward to hearing from Ingrid, and will make sure that the
product we deliver will meet your needs etc.
> Personally I am considering setting up a new web site exclusively
using your software as my virtual museum. Hope to get the personal use
price as its a contribution to world cyberculture and nothing will be
for sale. I personally look forward to working with the beta.
That sounds excellent, and we'll definitely come to an agreement where
the gallery can be used for free on your site.

>>>Very interesting demo. How do I get to know more? Is your product done or
>>>still working on the beta? How much is it?
>>The product to import all of the images is currently in alpha, and will
>>be ready for release in about 12 weeks ( we're hoping for a beta in
>>about 8 ). If it's going to be used for personal / home use, there will
>>be a very low cost for the product ( $30 to $100 ), we are still working
>>on costings for commercial usage. If you have any suggestions or
>>thoughts on the pricing, we're open to hearing thoughts from potential
>>users of the art gallery.
>>>Want to use some of our art for
>>>demo? Webism is up and coming and more appropriate that those old
>>>traditional artwork you have in the demo.
>>We would definitely be interested in using some of your art... do you
>>have any pieces that you would particularly like to show? If you have
>>20 to 30 pieces that could be placed in two different rooms ( maybe
>>showing 2 different styles of the webism art ), we could use it to
>>populate two of the rooms of the final web demo.
>>>Most interested if it's easy to use for tech dummies like me.
>>The interface will be extremely easy to use, and will allow you to
>>attach other information to the various images ( name, author,
>>description, price, specify a voice-over etc ). When we reach beta
>>stage, I can contact you to try out the software if you like.
>>Thanks for replying, I have been looking at some of your previous
>>projects and they are very impressive. Hopefully we can deliver
>>something that you will be able to use for future projects ( we're based
>>in Northern Ireland, but are keen to work with creative people from
>>right around the globe ).
>>Do you have any links to projects you are working on at the moment?
