Networking Leads: 1/6/2006

I thought that this batch of networking leads would be a little thin, given the holidays. Now that we’re into the new year, things are really picking up! Enjoy this latest batch of leads, and happy networking!

And of course, the proverbial ground rules: I must be careful not to disclose too much information – I certainly want to be respectful of the confidentiality and trust I have established with people. However, I do think we have a unique opportunity here to create a virtual platform for the exchanging of networking leads. In certain instances, I realize that I may need to act as a conduit for interested parties, in order to protect the anonymity of certain of these leads. However, I will aspire to provide as much information as possible here in the text, so that you can contact each other directly (I really *don’t* want to get into the habit of playing middleman, other than passing along contact information).

If you have something that you would feel to be of merit for this new section of the Pothole, by all means, let me know (spammers and open solicitors need not apply).

Craig Larson, the CTO of VuBotics, gave me a quick demo of their product called “VuIT”. It is an on-the-fly viewing utility for Blackberry handhelds. In the demo I saw, it basically turned that tiny email text into nice, big, easy-to-read text. Great for executives on the move!

I came across a consulting firm that has a need for 4 Software Architect’s with senior level experience. The openings are in Cleveland, OH and here in Atlanta.
