There are many reasons that I have fallen off the face of the earth.

  1. I graduated
  2. It was summerBut now that it is no longer summer, it is only fair to discuss the third reason:
  3. I started a business

Yes, back in June I participated in the now quarterly event Startup Weekend where the entrepreneurial inclined come together for a weekend to develop and pitch a business.  The teams really did cover the gamut of businesses, from sample sales to porn.  One of those groups was allows users to collect, manage, and share their online and offline achievements in one fun environment. Users can hook into their preexisting awards services like Foursquare and Gowalla to use as a wallet for their achievements. They can also earn specific badges for their other activities on services such as Facebook, Netflix, and Kiva. But, best of all, we partner with businesses, schools, and organizations to recognize the achievements of their employees, customers, students, and participatns in a valid way.

After Startup Weekend concluded, we didn’t. Thus, a flurry of activity commenced. We won prize money from AOL, partnered in Microsoft’s BizSpark program, and were just chosen to participate in NYU and Columbia’s InSite program. Through it all, we have been deveotedly working away to develop the service for our users and partner organizations.
