Unremarkably, without data that expresses a relationship, it's impossible to model that relationship.  A lot of engineers will definitely tend to miss this because we start out with a huge pile of life experiences that enable us to inference a wide array of situations correctly, leading us to believe that it's generally possible to model our way out of the lack of scientific data.  

In the case of product development, this tendency really limits progress, so I'm creating a tool to keep pace so that more entrepreneurs can figure out how to ship products out of what they're doing already.  Don't miss the launch news!

Entrepreneurship is frequently very egalitarian and socially productive compared to the rent-seeking and "toner head" behavior you see from entrenched players.  While bootstrapping my business on Android applications, I decided that product dev is such an important, under-taught business skill that I could make a service that would be really useful to younger and less established entrepreneurs, something I would have benefited from tremendously years ago.  

This is going to be a service about individual mobility and learning how to build businesses that are product-driven.  Don't miss the launch ^^

Don't miss the launch!  Surfboard is a product focused squarely at organizing the bootstrap phase of product development.  Users who are an ideal fit want to bring their first product to market, but haven't gotten totally away from contracting or employment yet.  Surfboard is about individual mobility, and I'm extremely enthusiastic about delivering value because of that.

Developing a cat-centric moving puzzle experience.  Usual.  Cats in space etc.  I could take it really psychadelic.  Crank it up to 11?  http://t.co/2sE61sgNCg

Every Kivy user has to go through pong at some point.  This was about a year ago.  Check out my latest application at https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=org.knapps_apps.reduce    I'm starting to do some PR now that early user testing tells me I'm getting close.  I need to call more attention to the Warp button and I'm making more intermediate levels as well as serving up easier ones at the start.  New update out tonight.

Made a promo video for may Android game.  Quick & dirty with Openshot, the most unstable, but still kind of easy to use video editing program ever.  Working on new levels today.  #meowmeow #reduce.  https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=org.knapps_apps.reduce

The new share thing is pretty fun.  The app purrs in a self-centered manner, exactly like a cat.  Very happy with Android intents.  Share to Google+, Facebook, and Twitter, and pretty much anything were all reasonably good although Facebook kills the text.  How are we liking space kitty?   App is published but needs time to upload to all servers.  https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=org.knapps_apps.reduce

New branding for reduce.  Cleaned up bugs.  Made a level generator to start the work of cleaning up the levels and getting away from random levels.   What do you think?
