  1. Hi Joe. Hyperlinks to the restaurants you frequent would be cool. When are you going to reveal what your next big idea is? Al

  2. Hey Al

    I added a few links. Sorry, I’m getting a bit lazy I guess.

    “TF meetings” are about the new idea. ETA for a first demo is about two weeks.. but I’d imagine we’ll only start a closed alpha/beta early next year.

    I’m glad to report: I’m still alive and well and Tuesday’s almost finished! Can’t say the same of that blabber-mouth across from me though. :D
