In 2011, I was living in Singapore and wanted to know my new neighborhood better. So I decided to produce 16 books about 16 countries in Asia, mostly for my own self-knowledge.

From 2012-2014, 140 researchers, writers, and editors produced these 33 books. The raw data is now available to customers.

In 2014, I asked Janet Chang to be CEO, and she produced the GoToLaunch series.

In 2016, with no new books planned, I shut down the business, and dissolved the corporation. I like the name, though, so I'll probably use it for something related, some day.
