This week in San Francisco I got the chance to finally meet up with my cofounder after just over 7 months of working together. It was a pleasure talking in person with Tyler and his wife Heather, they both made the long journey down from Portland by car. Our first meet up was to attend the Tech Crunch 5 year reunion, which was a little too loud for conversation level. We headed out early to catch a trolley down to Fishermen's Wharf and hung out on the patio by our hotel playing with the iPad and talking over interfaces. Thankfully Heather and Michelle kept each other company so neither of them was too bored listening to Victus Media techno babble.
It feels like both an eternity and the blink of an eye when we began working together last October on an alpha version of the Intelligent Media Manager. We've refined the design of that social browser to focus it much more heavily on people instead of ads, and since then added several more utilities to our reportoire. Both Tyler and I have made big strides with web development which is helping towards our next hurdle, achieving social proof with a product (traction, membership growth, etc).
