So... took Friday and Monday off for a long weekend to visit the folks, only to come into the office to find out that our internet's been down that entire time, and is still down, and there's literally nothing I can do in the office without it.
And, best of all, didn't being my phone charger in today, nor did I bring a book, so I've got literally nothing to do until the network is brought back up and can only access the web recreationally for as long as my phone has juice.
Weird pays, means there is more sometimes. Kudos to this guy for following through in spite of all else I am sure he had to deal with.
Oh of course, not everyone can start a successful company. I'm sure he worked really hard to make it all happen.
He was always a brilliant guy. Near the top of the class, went to an Ivy League school. He just seemed to get a kick out of acting strange. He never was so strange it was uncomfortable -- actually he was pretty popular -- but just enjoyed being very different from the norm.
One of those things where it's just funny to look at it in hindsight. If you had asked me at graduation who was most likely to start a successful company, he would've been a very average pick. Far from last, but plenty of other kids seemed way more determined/business-savvy.
Yet he's the one who pulled it off. Nothing but respect for him.
Made an iPhone app to find nearby pickup sports games.
No ****. Congrats to him. Excellent work. I have a way better idea for an iPhone app. I wonder what you have to do to get it going. Do you have to actually write the code and all of that ****? Wish I could talk to this guy. I have got to get a lawyer or something to help me with this ****, tired of wasting my ****ing time.
Unfortunately, doing a little searching, I found that someone already made my app two years ago. It was a birthday app that automatically texted a pre-programmed message to the people you put in so you don't have to worry about forgetting. Oh well. I have millions of ideas. I just need to find some direction to getting them out there. Too bad they don't have think tanks people can just go and work for. I'll figure this **** out somehow. I keep thinking getting a lawyer is important, at least for my writing. I'm paranoid of even telling anyone my stuff due to it getting stolen. I guess I need to get some copyrights in place and take it from there.
