And on to some big news!!! Zach had an in-person meeting here in Natchez with one of the Directors for the Mississippi Technology Alliance and a conference call with their Entrepreneurial Team in Jackson about Gameday Map. They have been helping him flesh out options regarding further development and most importantly deciding on a revenue model. The MTA then put him in touch with Dream Logic, a young company in Jackson, MS who develops web applications along with iPhone and Droid applications. They are experienced enough to work with large companies in Jackson but young enough to know what Gameday Map needs. Then they pitched it to another company in Jackson and received and unbelievable response. They want to partner with Wyatt's Torch, Zach's LLC, and aid in development and marketing of the product! They plan to come to Natchez to present Zach with the plans and if we decide to move forward they would like to have something to market by Football season...WHOA! We were elated to hear it could be a real possibility to see it become an iPhone app and android app sometime this year. All this good news came to us last week on our way to Oxford, ironically enough.
I hope this is somewhat of an excuse or explanation as to why I had such a long blog-cation. I remember the days when summer meant sleeping late, relaxing, swimming, and occasional errand here or there. Instead, our days seem to be go-go-go from the moment our head leaves the pillow until the moment it returns.
One final note: While we were in Oxford this weekend for a wedding, a law school friend of Zach's told me she keeps up with us on facebook and was wondering exactly how many businesses we work for and/or have started between the two of us. So I counted them up and the answer.....7.
