2016

By
As the year 2016 comes to a close, it’s time to thank some of our stars during the past year – those of you who have contributed time, efforts, and even money, to help us in our quest to be the best website ever for creating and sharing digital picture books. First, to my dear wife Shuli, who as CEO has lent her vision and support (and of course half of the investment), to partner, co-founder and resident web genius Ran Shternin, who continues to make the site better and better (check out the new Activity Feed on the homepage, for example), to our social queen, Maya Hed, for spreading the word (well, the books, actually) far and wide, to Nik Peachey for publishing such a beautiful piece about Ourboox ( http://bit.ly/2aihOSG)  to Stephen Pohlmann and Alon Cohen who have provided financial assistance, our advisory team (Tal Givoly, we are planning to use your awesome idea in 2017, and yes, Avi Shechter we must meet!) with a special shout out to Jeff Pulver who is always full of great advice. our wonderful lawyer Guy Lachman, our prolific writers (Amnon Yoged comes immediately to mind), the thousands of teachers who are using Ourboox with their students (Malu, you deserve a star here), and our millions of writers and readers. Go on, give yourselves a big like!!!
New features are in store in 2017, so be prepared to be surprised. Wishing us all a wonderful year!!!

About Mel Rosenberg

Mel Rosenberg couldn't make a living writing and giving away children’s books so to make ends meet he took on odd jobs as a professor of microbiology, inventor, jazz musician, singer and French toast cook. More recently he has teamed with Ran Shternin (and a whole bunch of wonderful volunteers) to create ourboox.com, an international community of writers and illustrators who make amazing books together using a unique platform.
