On April 3rd http://www.amigan.com will launch. [..] This web site is owned by the newly formed Grapevine Computers Inc., and will eventually include many features, at this point I'm not sure which ones will be operational at launch date. It is being run on a fully Pearl/CGI enabled
Linux web server with a secure site certifcate for secure online purchases.
The business model outlined below doesn't seem too trustworthy to me. My advice would be to be wary. Any comments/thoughts?
The idea behind this corporation is that it will be 100% owned by Amiga users, and at launch date users may purchase shares of stock no matter where in the world they live (We've contacted the IRS on how to do this). We want to compete with the very few online vendors of Amiga products that have a monoply like effect selling upgrade parts and replacement parts for very high prices for classic Amiga. We will also be a dealer for the new Amiga.
I've contacted Bill McEwen but I haven't heard back from him (he's a busy guy I'm sure), to get the offical Amiga blessing. All shareholders will get a discount on items for sale, and right now were planning on members of the board of directors getting products at cost. Shares of common stock will be sold for $1 US, and anyone can purchase a few as one share. It is a privately held close corporation, in in will operate pursuant to the Texas
Close Corporation Act (my lawyer talking there).
Were also looking for a couple of people. One, someone to translate the site into German and and server as a coordinator and contact for operations for German. Second, someone to serve as a cordinator and contact for operations in England. Stock will be traded in consideraton for these positions, and they will eventually will be paying positions when we get off the ground. This is by no means full time (it's not going to be full time for me either, even
though my girlfriend sure thinks it is). Interested persons can e-mail email@example.com . If their DNS servers are not updated yet, they can e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org .
Further details will be released on April 3rd on the website. Anyone having quesitons can e-mail me.
