Role:
Business Channel Architect, Product Manager, Producer

The Story:
In 1997, Peter was brought in by the CEO as Site Architect to help re-orient the company's pioneering content, community & commerce site for Asian-Americans into a mainstream USA retailing site.

Results:
While page views and revenues grew significantly during 1997 holiday season, financial market 'contagion' in the Channel A's predominant fundraising sphere - Asia, led to staff defections, cash flow problems and eventual closure in 1998.

Press:
ZDNet: ChannelA.com Focuses On Asians
Red Herring: ChannelA.com Goes Off the Internet -- for good.
