So what's the company anyway... and what time is it?
After a punishing Saturday night, my roommate and business partner (Rajiv) decided we can't binge drink anymore. That'll probably last a week. It's like a New Year's resolution, except even less likely to be followed. Speaking of business... anyone watch Flight of the Conchord's...and know what time it is? (Video above).
On the topic of business, I thought I'd talk about what our company is and how it came to be. This will be short - I'm sure I'll get into more details in future postings.
So, Rajiv and I are avid travelers. We felt that travel sites out there don't really cater to individual preferences and tastes as well as they should - so we decided to improve on this. Realizing that people, even friends, share wildly different preferences for what they like to do, we spent months trying to figure out a way to connect the millions of unconnected users in cyberspace who are outside your "circle of friends" (ala MySpace, Friendster, Facebook, etc.)
We came up with a science to do this. It's not the semantic web, but rather a complement to it. We're focused more on the user. We want to empower you and allow you to define who you are and how you use the information online. We hope it works. It will make finding information a more efficient and productive process.
