The Changing of the Seasons

Each season is started off with its own little rituals, whether it be installing the A/C for Summer, or doing demos in the early Autumn.

The season of Ick has just been officially inaugurated, as I zip the lining into my raincoat. Razza-frazzing-35-degree-rain. I want a refund on Fall, which seems to have only lasted about three weeks this year...

The Few, the Proud, the Funded

Okay, it's up on the company website, so I'll allow myself a brief brag: we got a Series B!

This is no small matter. The last two companies I was at developed mondo cool technologies, but ran out of money before we could actually market the things. This time around, though, it looks like we've got the cash to really go for it, which is no small feat in the current economy. (And sometime soon I'll be allowed to publically describe what the heck we're doing. It's been very difficult, not being able to burble on the subject.)

They also changed the name of the company to "Convoq" (pronounced "Convoke"), which gives me some spelling heebie-jeebies, but is at least much easier to type and say than "Applied Messaging"...
