I have been in CSPI for about a year. But CDIR is a much better story. A new breed of search engine was launched today by Concepts Direct (CDIR). No dead links and intuitive reasoning descriptions. Check it out at www.botweb.com. Concepts Direct has $70 mm market value and $50 MM in revenue. The CEO is a pro at databases and will tell the CDIR story soon in New York. They also own igift.com themusicstand.com -lindaanderson.com and will launch more soon.
pitch on the CSPI board? Here's the Yahoo! profile:
Concepts Direct, Inc. is a direct marketing company that sells personalized paper products and a diverse line of merchandise (gift items, home decorative items and apparel). For the nine months ended 9/30/99, net sales decreased 31% to $34.9 million. Net loss increased 6% to $1.9 million. Revenues reflect a decrease in sales due to a change in the Company's strategy. Higher loss reflects a decreased gross profit due to lower sales over which to spread fixed costs.
