I still don't think that raising is that newswothy.  Feels more like an ego thing.

Doing market research for < $3K?  Easy.  Executing?  Much harder.

Good read on how we approached researching, identifying and addressing the Rivet & Sway opportunity.

Apologies for the forthcoming mass of posts and content.  While I love Google Apps, the confusion that reigns having two separate Google + accounts is hitting a crescendo.  btw, if you are running Google Apps, realize that you may have issues if you're using a business email address and a personal email address to login into Google +.  Brutal.

This is a huge problem. I've got two identities on Google also. Funny to see Google telling me that I should be friends with Chris Rodde.

You're either making or selling product?  Be worried if you're not doing either.
