…and they were kind of enough to write this article about some of the stuff I said.
My favorite bit:
The company, Spunlogic, moved out of his mother’s basement and into an office after landing a deal with a New Zealand company. As hopes heightened and excitement built, the New Zealand company went bankrupt without a penny spent on Spunlogic.
“It was the worst thing that could have happened at the time, but I always wonder what would have happened had it not happened,” Hilimire said, further explaining that the potential New Zealand deal provoked Spunlogic to move into a real office and take on a couple of new employees. Essentially, it made them begin the begin, which is Hilimire’s blog name as well as his favorite R.E.M song.
As I recall after I mentioned R.E.M. and no one whooped or hollered, I gave them grief about it and joked that I guess I should be talking to the Athens Chamber of Commerce. They hollered about that a little ;)
