The People's Market on Empire Avenue opens Feb 23, 2010

Well, the invites are out for our launch event at Transcend Coffee, lists of Beta Invitees are being prepped for their site invites next week, and the press releases are being written. I don't even know what else to write! We're going to open up the site to a Friends and Family Beta on February 23rd, 2010. The first beta is going to be closed by necessity. We need to test out the systems, we need to test out our economy, we need to shake down the bugs and we need to watch server load. But you can be invited into the beta; just enter your email address on the front page for a chance to get in… or if that opportunity isn’t enough for you, email us and tell us why you think you should get in before anyone else. We happen to like chocolate. Just saying.

Thanks to the fine folks at Transcend Coffee in Edmonton and to caterer Meghan, who will be helping us host our small Launch Party on the evening of the 23rd. The party is also Invite Only and those that come will unlock a unique Achievement on the site. If you're coming, great! If you want to come, also drop us an email… we have a couple of spots available for people who really convince us they should be there!
