Needle Configurator


I can't get tired of saying ' i just built a needle configurator'

Sounds a little Dr. Who? It isn't.

It is infact all Merrow. In an effort to make our products easy to undestand we've built a tool using MIT exhibit technology that organizes and cross references our needles.

It is ... well, awesome.

t minus ....


the origin of T minus Fritz Lang's 1929 film Frau im Mond

how about the website

today we built the agent stores. why is this cool? because the merrow store is getting better every day and now anyone selling our products can have their own branded store...

that's right -- we've built stores for hundreds of agents. custom stores...custom content, custom everything...

it started off as a novel idea-- how can our website help people sell.

Most everything we've done with the website is try to help people understand what we do. So on a lark we tried building a store for an agent... and that's when the *ah-ha* thing happened.... we can do this for everyone. or everyone who it would matter to.

So now as long as the agent signs up and agrees to customize the content we'll release a custom storefront for them.

How's that for innovative...

And the blank stare says 'when are we gonna see it.... ' . Right.

on its way....

3 month rest


for three months we've been readying our new website. 3 months inside with fluorescent light and very little else.

This blog has suffered -- as I resolved to not post until the new website was released on ...cough,cough.. june 4.

so that didn't turn out so well. now it's august 9th and we're almost there.

this is exciting stuff. we've invested thousands of hours into this project with the modest goal of releasing the best site in the industry.

----
the new blogeresolution will be to post bits about the site until it goes live --

While you wait check out some of our stitches on flickr
