This is the front page of the Winnipeg Free Press, February 15, 1997 (I'm in the blue suit), the day after we launched CR6. In the short time
it was on the net, it got a lot of attention, it was even a Yahoo! Pick of the Week.
Yahoo! said: "CR6 is the creation of Clickable Systems International, a Winnipeg company redefining the limits of the Internet. Imagine a storybook where, as you progress through the
pages, you can choose different characters to hear their thoughts or follow them down
private pathways, or ... again, we shouldn't be telling. But while the technology side of this site rates high on the gee-whiz scale, the characters are what will keep you coming back for more every week."
The whole thing came apart the way many music groups do; in-fighting. It finally got so bad that I withdrew from the project, selling the rights to all the intellectual property to the cast (They did NONE
of the fighting).
In the end, it was a great experience and I wouldn't trade it for anything. After all, how often do you get to hold a press conference in a place like the Manitoba Legislative Building, with three Ministers, ALL the media in the city, AND be quoted saying "feces and genitalia" on the
front page of the paper the next day?
