WASP: Looking for advisors

The level of interest toward WASP is increasing. Users as well as interested parties such as web analytics companies and consulting firms are sending in feedback and feature requests, or asking for free market data. Considering WASP is still far from being a commercially mature product, granted it's a free tool done "on the side" that doesn't actually bring revenues, I don't want to rush into a direction and spend a lot of time without making sure it's a viable path. At the end of the day, there's still a business case to make and an ROI to justify!

Some facts

À la "Visa":
  • wide visibility in the web analytics industry,
  • 72 tools detected: web analytics, ad networks, a/b & multivariate,
  • 35,000 downloads since v0.021,
  • 6,000,000 pages analyzed per month,
  • 125,000 sites analyzed per month,
  • $250 in revenue... priceless...

What I'm looking for

I'm looking for individuals for two main things:
  • WASP users, either implementation specialists, consultants or analysts who are willing to provide feedback and test new versions
  • Angel advisors who are willing to advise me on the business side: which revenue model is most promising, what's their reading of the market, which business pain point WASP can help solve or ease, etc.
I heard the WAA was talking about creating a WAA Lab to foster innovation, R&D and provide advice. That's exactly what I'm looking for :)

If you are interested, please contact me.
