I know I’m involved in WineQ and therefore a little biased but I just wanted to post quickly about the service.
For those that don’t know, WineQ is a site creating the NetFlix of Wine Clubs through the use of Web 2.0 technology. I tool around alot with so-called Web 2.0 products and sites (just look at the sidebars of this blog!) and some of the service I find are completely useless but cool, and some are really useful.
This morning I am literally involved in about 10 different things (which will affect the length of this post) for a product launch I’m leading at Cisco. At the bottom of my “to-do” list? Buy some new wines to try. I’m thinking I’m literally never going to get to this. Jump on my e-mail and I find this comforting reminder:
From: WineQ firstname.lastname@example.org
Subject: Your Q order is ready to ship!
Like I said, I’m involved with the site so I wanted to have that transparency, but I have to say that was pretty nice to know that WineQ had me covered with wines that I had been meaning to try but didn’t have time to get around to purchasing them. Don’t have to think about it. Don’t have to pay shipping. Three wines that I had been meaning to get around to buying are on their way (because I had them in my Q)!
If you know me, I value free time over anything else (other than family). If something is going to cost me free time it BETTER be damn good. Folks, I am spending free time working with WineQ….
