Respectance is getting quite some press. Since we found that a lot of our users are women between 25 and 50 we got invited by better.tv. This is a show broadcasted in eleven million households in the States. Rather big.
They made a special about why and how women can profit from social networking. Ranny is one of our early users. She lost her boyfriend in a tragic incident. After a couple of years she found Respectance and created a Tribute for her boyfriend Joe Woods. This has been quite an experience for Ranny, her friends and family. She is very grateful for having the opportunity to experience his life over again. It brought back a lot of memories.
When Ranny, as member of Respectance, and myself got interviewed in the studio, it was pretty emotional. But I am proud that she wanted to be featured in this show and set the example for other women. The scariest thing for living people is to be forgotten. We help them to refresh their memories and make sure that we will all have a place to keep our memories forever.
The middle photo is me with the entry badge we needed for the TV studios. They did not understand my ID, so my first name got changed into Nederlandse. That is in fact my nationality, Dutch.
The TV show will be broadcasted for the first time at October 19. After that it will be repeated and most likely be put on the internet.
