Celebrating 10 Years

The year was 2008.

We were jamming out to tunes like “Viva La Vida” by Coldplay. Katy Perry debuted with her smash hit “I Kissed a Girl” and immediately proved it would not be a one hit wonder with “Hot and Cold”. Miley Cyrus proved to the world she’s got much more in her career than Hannah Montana. Lady Gaga showed the world her “Poker Face”.

On the big screen we were watching films like “The Dark Knight”, “Mamma Mia”, “Benjamin Button” and “Kung Fu Panda”. Our vampire fascination was fulfilled with the first episode in the “Twilight” series. Finally, the Marvel Cinematic Universe kicked off by letting us know that Tony Stark is more than just a Billionaire Playboy in “Iron Man”.

In the technology front, we were starting to believe Facebook’s 200 million users may catch up with Blogger’s 222 million. MySpace was still on the scene with 126 million. Apple was pushing the edge by giving us GPS technology in our pockets with the iPhone 3G. They also launched a little project called the App Store. Google decided to give Apple a run for the money by introducing the Android Device. YouTube pulls the classic April Fool’s day prank of linking all videos on their main page to Rick Astley’s “Never Gonna Give You Up”.

It’s hard to believe all this happened 10 years ago.

This was the same year we released the very first version of WishList Member. Continue Reading →

A Step Forward

A Step Forward…

In the first week of September I received a message from my business partner Stu McLaren. He wanted to make sure that both Mike Lopez and I would be on our weekly partner meeting. Stu said that he and his wife had been making some major life decisions that would affect his future both personally and professionally.

Initially, I replied that I planned to be on the regularly scheduled Friday meeting, but I quickly realized that something just seemed different. We then pushed the meeting up a day early. Continue Reading →
