Apologies for the slight delay in posting recently – i’ve been busy helping* a new exciting startup company get through their initial launch this weekend with their first customer, and they are already generating revenue!
The company, comprised mainly of young smart space tragics, is only tangentially related to space, in that one of the key components of their system is taken from the free signals being provided by the GPS constellation. The rest of the technology comes from the internet and wireless world, and combines some great bits of clever engineering/integration to go after a wide open, multi-billion dollar market.
So, without further ado, I’d just like to offer a huge congratulations to the team at SnowSports Interactive and the launch of their whispar service at Mt. Buller in Victoria (that’s in Australia). Special congratulations to Steve Kenny, the Managing Director/CEO, for taking them from idea to implementation in 7 short months.
* “helping” – v. normally means to assist, but mostly i just stood by the sidelines and cheered them on.
