Exactly 15 years ago, on October 15, 1998, my partner Harry Emerson and I formed a company that we soon named SurferNETWORK.
Our vision was to create a ‘Just Like Radio’ experience for radio stations broadcasting on the Internet – a lofty goal since buffering and waiting was the rule. Most of America still connected to the Internet using dial up services, if they connected at all.
Despite those challenges and others, we accomplished that goal of creating a ‘Just Like Radio’ experience by developing and patenting ‘Instant On’ and ‘Ad Replacement’ technologies, hosted on a state of the art streaming platform.
There were many lessons learned in the past 15 years, too many to share, with the exception of two.
- SurferNETWORK would not exist without you, our loyal and supportive Clients
- SurferNETWORK would not be successful without the dedication and commitment of our Employees
My partner and I wish to extend a sincere appreciation and thanks to our Clients and Employees for enabling us the privilege to operate SurferNETWORK for the last 15 years.
SurferNETWORK is rapidly moving ahead, implementing our plans to develop innovative technologies and business strategies – all of which is dedicated to our new vision for Internet broadcasting. Once again, we thank you for joining us on the journey so far, and invite you to participate with SurferNETWORK in creating the future of Internet broadcasting.
