Thanks, guys! :) This has been vexing me no end, trying to figure out how to roll back to earlier versions, for testing. As ever, you guys rock!
And I really hope the technology you were working on last summer makes its debut, some day - I still tell people how jaw-dropping it was.
What an awesome initiative! Wish I was in the position, geographically speaking, to avail myself of the opportunity.
Totally agree that lyrics are bad news - I just start singing along. Which isn't good for my focus, or anybody else's ears. I also find that different styles of music fit at different times - ambient / new age for design, experimentation or prototyping, post-rock / trance for code crunching, heavy techno / industrial for bug-splatting.
I guess I've always viewed self-proclaimed experts with extreme scepticism - "think you're an expert? *I'll* be the judge of that!" Akin to the line that those who seek power are often those least fitting to be entrusted with it.
You'll find the right arena for your many talents, Sarah - right for *you*, that is - and maybe that'll have less emphasis on areas that others want you to be prominent in. You said "It seems like a lot of people would like me to" - of course! Because you're so very good at it... and maybe because, if you do it, then they don't have to. I could (but won't) wax lyrical on the dubious merits and probable pitfalls of taking on roles that others want for you.
If I've learned anything - and it's doubtful whether I have - it's this - do what's right for you, and by so doing you'll discover the resources and determination to do right by those who matter to you, be they individuals or groups.
And coffee? Dinner? Awesome! Well, it *would* be, if I were in town...
You guys ROCK! :) I said so from day one... well, Demo Night #1, to be precise, but, who's quibbling?
I cannot tell you how pleased I am for you all - and how excited I am to see all that you'll achieve, together.
I seem to recall saying, early in June, that of the ten Techstars 2008 startups, Foodzie was the one I'd invest in - so this news delights and pleases me beyond measure! :) Congratulations to Emily, Nik and Rob.
And to all at Techstars for helping to make their vision more than just a vision.
Now all I need is an excuse to visit New York! :) The office looks great, guys - keep up the amazing work.
Great work, Andrew! Glad to have kept up my 100% record of staying off-camera, too! :)
