* POSTSCRIPT: The other day, Dan Bricklin came up with an idea for a

research project that we like a lot. Dan's suggestion is that we begin to compile data on what might be called 'sales cycle profiles." In essence, we'd compare monthly unit sales figures for a variety of products in different categories, starting with their rollout date and cutting off after three years. Our goal would be to identify normal growth curves, sales ranges, and any other benchmarks that the industry could use to take some of the guesswork out of the planning process. we've already tried out Dan's idea on a few publishers, who like the concept and have agreed to participate. Since there seems to be a good deal of enthusiasm for this project, we're now looking for more developers who'll share a sample of sales data with us (on a confidential basis). If you'd like to be part of the study, please call or drop us a note and we'll fill you in on the details.
