When you hear bad news sometimes you’ve got to get it out of your system. We were in the early stages of being acquired but things were looking very positive as both sides appeared to want it to happen. However, we heard today that it isn’t happening – so I’m flat. Not for any personal reason based on me getting a big fat cheque (I never expected that). What I thought was that with this new partner, giving us some money to invest, we could make a much bigger difference.
I’ve got a massive backlog of ideas I want to implement, all making TRIP so much better. To introduce these needs investment, not much, but enough to do it properly.
If you look at what TRIP has achieved (see this post & this one) with our amazingly low budget (around £25,000 per year) just think what we could achieve with a decent investment.
However, it’s not only the money, it’s help with other things – such as publicity – to help get the message of TRIP across.
So, my disappointment is that I really did feel I could have helped change the world. For the time being that’s been taken from me – so flat as the proverbial pancake.

I just wanted to drop in and say you, & your team, and TRIP is phenomenal. You are one of my favourite sources for EBM. It's really inspirational that you take the time to listen to user feedback, and if you were acquired, for some reason my first worry is that you'd have to limit your directions.
So many thanks again for your excellent site! Keep it up! There are others like me promoting you, so hopefully soon more opportunities will come your way.
