"Tri Digest" vs "Tri-Biz Reader"?

Post by SBRMJ » Sat, 05 Jan 2002 02:24:20


I see where Dan Empfield is putting up a daily tri-newsletter, beyond the very
informative Slowtwitch site.  I'm wondering if this is going to cover the same
ground as Katherine Williams' Tri-Digest?
Any thoughts on this? Seems like both services might be in competition for a
lot of the same news.
Katherine has done a good job with her service. There has been some honest
journalistic controversy at times (ITU, etc) but it's always been an
interesting clearinghouse of sorts. I wonder if Dan has a different focus in
mind.
Any news on this?

I'm beginning to wonder about the entire Slowtwich thing.    I ordered one
of their very bright jerseys a couple months ago, they wasted no time
charging my card the same day.   Last month I sent an e-mail inquiry as I
had never received the jersey.   I got a response from Dan saying that they
were not even made nor ordered yet.   That they would wait till they had a
large batch then order.    Nice way to get an interest free loan from your
customers.

Be careful doing any business with this outfit.   I still have no jersey,
just a charge to my account.

Ken,  You obviously do not know Dan Empfield and the incredible reputation he
has for being an honest, helping and straight-forward person.  He is a man that
would never rip anybody off.  Instead of complaining about your money here on
RST, why don't you give him a call and ask him for your money back.  I will bet
you it will take you less time to do this than to write a thread like this that
most people in the Newsgroup will beg to differ with your opinion about one of
the most important people in the history of the sport and the industry of
triathlon.

If you would like his phone number send me an email.

Emilio,

You are right of course.    I do know that Dan and his operation would never
rip off anyone.   Heck, I don't want my money back but some day I would like
to receive that very bright, well designed,  high visibility Jersey.   I do
hereby strike my last sentence of my first post.

Slowtwitch is good reading for all of us.  Dan, Amy and group have done good
with it.   I suspect that Tri-Biz Reader will provide much valuable and
interesting information on current triathlon events.

Ken
