Hi, I’m back from Boulder, CO!
Well, not JUST back. It’s been over a week actually. But we’re just now getting the chance to blog about it. As part of our prize for winning the 2009 Rails Rumble, we (me, Jonathan, and Max) got to spend a week out in Boulder, CO at TechStars meeting people and working on Hi, I’m.
Our host for the week was Andrew Hyde. Andrew manages community for TechStars and runs Startup Weekend. He set us up for some meetings with some incredibly smart and insightful people who shared their startup stories, gave us some great advice, and answered our questions. Big thanks to David Cohen, Eric Marcoullier and the Gnip Team, Derek Scruggs from SurveyGizmo, Allison Kent and the crew at Boulder Digital Workshop, and Jeremy Tanner for the conversation and rides to and from the airport (we owe you).
We also got to spend a few days with our heads down working on the Hi, I’m product. We’re trying to keep making progress on fixing bugs and working in the features we want to build while still maintaining the commitment we have to our Koombea clients. Getting a week to focus on Hi, I’m was great and we were able to squash some bugs and launch the new customization feature which was incredibly well received.
We came home as excited as ever about the future of Hi, I’m and we’re looking forward to getting a lot done in the days and weeks ahead. We’ve got some pretty big ideas for where we want to go and can’t wait to keep building Hi, I’m into the best way on the Internet to introduce yourself to people.
