The only classes I went to in high school were Jazz band, music theory, and chess club. If I had graduated I would have been 2nd from the bottom of my class. Something about being told to be somewhere at 7:40 (AM) everyday seemed so ridiculous. College was cool though - I have a B.A. in Political Science.
I run a tech start-up called picphix (sounds like Pic Fix). We invented an iPhone camera (an app) that literally makes it impossible to take a bad picture. How you ask?
See if you can figure it out. ;)
"PicPhix is such an interesting idea, it's so simple that you wonder why no one has thought of it before, but PicPhix is first." - Chris Bernard, Chief Experience Evangelist, Microsoft
It's still in Beta - so if you really wanna check it out, click "proceed or continue" when it prompts you with the security warning (that's just an expired security certificate) - no biggs.
Anyway, we burned through all of our seed money developing our web experience and iOS camera. Didn't wanna 'nickel-and-dime' our stock so we're trying to bootstrap it till we can make it fly. The money we make from bookings helps us finance the development of our second iphone camera and specifically, a feature called "artist offers". It's gonna allow our artists to send ideas for photo editing to anyone with our iPhone camera app. Imagine swiping a push notification to reveal the "before" image - and then scratching it off to reveal the enhanced image. You won't believe what some of our artists can do - click "browse artist" on our website, sort by average price, the look at some of our artist's profiles. ;)
In terms of guests - don't really care too much. Special preference to artists, musicians, or entrepreneurs. The more verified you are the better - have something about yourself in your profile - connect it to your (website hidden), and (website hidden). Just nice to know that people staying at your place are connected and have a story. ...and if you think you can drink at a steady enough pace, you're welcome to join us for dinner or drinks (where ever we happen to be).
