I was chatting with Kris Bruland (creator/owner of Handweaving.net) at lunchtime today and he mentioned that Handweaving.net gets 10,000 hits a day. On a slow day.
This amazes me. I had been thinking on a fairly small scale, like about 5,000 active users and an overall registered user base of about 30,000 users, if we were lucky. That’s the subscription size of Handwoven. But it looks like the weaving community is way, way, bigger than that…so there is much more potential than I had originally thought. Whether we can capture it (especially with the international community) is another matter…but there are apparently more weavers between Heaven and Earth, Horatio, than were dreamt of in my philosophy.
Kris also said that integration with Handweaving.net shouldn’t be too hard, and offered to help our developer(s) with it if and when we got to that point – great news. I’ll keep it in mind.
