Dear Friends,

It has been a long time since our last update. The reason for this wasn't that we stopped working on Newsgrape, but rather that we spent the past five months developing what will be our largest leap forward yet.

To be more precise, we've been working on the next phase of the project: A semantic extraction based news reader/crawler, with the aim to deliver a diverse media perspective and change the blogging infrastructure, using an innovative plug-in that allows bloggers to synchronize their content directly with Newsgrape. All of this contributes towards creating a perfect news portal and making reading and discussing news more fun.

During the past months, we've also closed our first actual seed investment round, enabling us to shift gear, increase our team and server architecture and dig into creating awesome software with new and increased efforts.

Last but not least, Leo is about to move to San Francisco for thee months, starting Thursday, to smoothen the launch and our US market entry. Needless to say, if you know any cool people in the Bay Area, Leo would be very grateful for introductions!

If you are interested in a more thorough update, please have a look at this Development Update in English or German!

All the best, 

Felix, Leo, Bernhard, Luis and many more
