Will pigs fly?
It is with mixed emotions that I bring to your attention this fantastic write-up of LearnDog by Gail Plowman from www.pigswillfly.com.au. I have been following Gail's stories of grassroots community and business issues for some time and had the pleasure of meeting her at the ConnectinUP conference a few weeks back.
In a Napolean Dynamite style "sharing of skills", I have tried to help Gail wrestle with the geekery of blogs, rss feeds and podcasts and she has responded with a write-up that captures the essence of LearnDog in ways that I couldn't possibly articulate. In a single sentence she captures the essence:
"The global scale of the idea - to create a positive learning experience to help kids make better life choices and deal with the youth dangers of depression and suicide - is huge BUT it fits both a world-wide need AND the e-medium."
"The plan is:
- set up a ‘Public company limited by guarantee (Non Profit) under Australian federal law’;
- seek tax (Deductible Gift Recipient) tax status;
- set up entities in strategic countries around the world.
“We could do with some help,” says Mike."
So why the mixed emotion?
Well, you see, I have spent the last couple of weeks preparing to put this little puppy into 'hibernation' for a while (can puppies hibernate?). I have already over-stayed my one year tenure as product manager of LearnDog and unfortunately, without the legal/accounting infrastructure mentioned above, we are not in a position to sustain the level of growth we need.
