Burst.com Launches New Web-Based Software Platform

Collaborize™ Introduced at Demo 2010

SANTA ROSA, CA--(Marketwire - March 22, 2010) -  Burst.com (PINKSHEETS: BRST) today announced its long-awaited new direction with the launch of Collaborize™, its new easy-to-start, easy-to-use communications and decision tool for groups of all sizes. Collaborize is an online service designed to help both external audiences and internal teams of nonprofits and for-profit organizations address issues both large and small and drive toward actual implementation of collective solutions. The public announcement of Collaborize™ was made at the Spring DEMO Conference. 

Burst.com is in the process of changing its name to Democrasoft™ to underline its new strategic direction. Collaborize is the first in an anticipated series of Democrasoft products built upon a common platform.

Collaborize arrives on the scene backed by the company's 20 years of technology expertise and beta partners that include Medtronic, Robert Cringely, TechSoup Global, Monitor Group, Maverick Media, Wine Industry Network and others

Because of the flexibility and scalability built into its "cloud computed" technology, Collaborize can cost-effectively empower groups and organizations of all sizes: businesses, non-profits, governments and their citizens. It taps into the "Wisdom of We"™ to turn a group, organization or social network into a functioning community that can organize conversations, capture great ideas, collect votes and streamline group decision-making, all online and in real time.

"Collaborize was conceived because the world's challenges are so large and pressing that they can't be solved just by individuals. We must rely on collective wisdom," says CEO Richard Lang, serial entrepreneur and CEO of Democrasoft. "Everyone -- the individual, the voter, the enterprise, the small business, the non-profit, the association, the online community -- has a need to be heard and something to offer. Collaborize can help them drive important decisions in real time."

Collaborize can be deployed in minutes to turn any functional group into a powerful online community.

"We chose Democrasoft's Collaborize as one of our launch companies at DEMO because it is easy to use and affordable, and we think it can make a difference in the world," said Matt Marshall, editor of VentureBeat and organizer of DEMO.
