The good news is: the app he created (Trees for Cars) is now the #5 best-selling app on the Apple App Store.

The bad news is: now my boss will be throwing this in my face..."hey, where's that app already? If Leo Grand can do it, what's your excuse?" :)

But seriously: good for Mr. Grand. Hopefully, Mr. McConlogue could see his way to clear to giving him a job, and help get him off the streets for good.

You can get the app here:

I teared up when I watched the opening video. I'm so glad we had Donna and Peta from +Black Girls CODE at Strata + Hadoop World last week!
