An early player on an increasingly crowded field of entertainment news sites, Entertainment Drive was delivering movie previews, celebrity chats and awards show coverage to online users via CompuServe (NYSE: AOL) as early as 1994. In contrast to many start-ups which are now no-longers, Entertainment Drive's migration to the web was gradual, having reached full occupancy only this year. "The hype about the web was pretty furious a couple of years ago," observed Michael Bolanos, founder and CEO of Entertainment Drive. "We already had enough experience to know that success in this media is based not on speed but on accuracy. Considering we've seen 100% growth every month since moving all of our products to the web, we're very pleased with the strategy."
An industry pioneer in connecting fans with entertainment news, events and celebrities online, New York-based Entertainment Drive (eDrive) was cited as an innovator by the Smithsonian Computerworld Awards, and is included in the Smithsonian Institution's National Archive on Information Technology, Entertainment Drive was featured on the cover of PC Magazine as part of "The Changing Face of Online" issue; and was named one of "12 Great Online Areas" by Compute Magazine. The eDrive website at http://www.eDrive.com was named one of the "Top 100" by PC Magazine in their "Best of the Web" issue; is a Premier Active Channel on Microsoft (Nasdaq: MSFT) Internet Explorer 4.0; and has received many awards, including the coveted "Webby." eDrive is also available in Japanese on Japan's leading commercial online service.
