Yesterday I attended a fascinating conference.  It isn't often that you can attend a conference in Sydney with the line-up of Martha Stewart, Russell Simmons, Muhammad Yunus and George Clooney.

As a startup, one of the main problems we face is bringing in new users to our products cheaply.

Popular web applications CheckDog, ManageFlitter, EmailSociety and TourCow now have a new home - 89n.

We are based in Sydney, Australia but have world-wide appeal. By taking unique approaches to solving real-world problems we create LIFE out of binary.

Our apps range from tools for Twitter account management to real-time online content proof-checking for editors, an ever-growing stream of email newsletters to a smart website tour system. Soon we will have even more and we are always looking to make things better.

89n is co-founded by Kevin Garber - an Australian (ex-African) entrepreneur who likes yoga, tofu and shooting staff members with lasers (seriously), and James Peter - a man whose brain has most-likely been sent back from the future and augmented with...
