Wow, we're live!

by Mattias on December 19th, 2008 in MyLavasoft blog.

Oh, you made it! Welcome to MyLavasoft. And without further ado, let me introduce the team that made this happen:

Hi from the Web Team

I have to admit that I'm still a little shellshocked that we actually are live right now. This project has been a pet idea of many employees at Lavasoft so to see it launch in this early form is very exciting for us.

The core concept of MyLavasoft is "community done right". A lot of social communities out there care little about user privacy, asking for or collecting information without giving any reason or notice. Some also fail in security, unintentionally exposing their users to malicious threats and providing a good distribution platform for the makers of spyware and malware to make a profit from.

With MyLavasoft, we want to present the world with an smarter and more secure alternative. A haven of sorts where discussion takes place that benefits the users of not only this community but also users of other social communities worldwide, a change driven by the ideas and concepts that spring forward in the discussion.

Bold statements, but change is necessary. Social communities aren't going away - we all love them (because we love to keep in touch with each other). But something or someone needs to push and advise them that they need to change and improve to better protect and respect their users.

Together we can be that someone and that something.

And I do promise that the next blog post will be a bit more on the lighter and brighter side... :)


Excellent idea!

Very well said. Lavasoft, through it's flagship Ad-aware, has an opportunity to become a major player in the important niche of which you speak. I'm not sure about others, but Ad-aware is just one of two or three pieces of software (other than anti-virus) I use to keep my machine clean. Having a goal of reducing 2-3 to one whould be a great step forward for many users, especially those not so savy when it comes to computer maintence and security. Product upgrades have made an important step in this direction...but I feel there is a way to go. And then, making the public aware (lol) there is only one program you need.

In answer to Calamity Jane's question:


Daniel and Calamity Jane, how did YOU get MY avatar? And why doesn't it animate like over in the Forum sections?


 


But seriously, did you choose that independently or did some behind-the-scenes transfer happen?

Hi, this seems like a great idea. The web can be a frustrating resource when looking for knowledge. The path to the answer is not always straightforward, the information may be outdated or flawed, or difficult to understand and apply. It is a good idea to put many minds from many backgrounds to work on a solution. Thanks for the invitation. I will be glad to do my part to help make it work.


Good to meet you all .

It's a great start and a unique concept for a software company.  But why not involve the consumer?  Other companies take note...!

But are you ready for prime time?  I ask because of what happened to Intuit this year with their program and price changes for TurboTax.  If you have not, you should go to the Amazon.com your communities page and then to the turbotax  community.
