At Gangplank-Tucson — despite our industrial warehouse location surrounded by 9 acres of asphalt — we’re always planting seeds. And sometimes with the Monsoon rains they grow. Check out this great news from Andrew Holloman, http://on.fb.me/N3mg3J.
This week also brought us some exciting, new anchors, Alex Ebadirad and Steve Addock, also known as Forward Intel Inc. As students of this summer’s Lean Startup program, they’ve launched a new business intent on revolutionizing intelligence derived from scraping the world’s already massive and ever-burgeoning datasets. Their vision not only pertains to internet-based data such as Google Analytics, but also could extend into many other areas, for instance, genomics, business and meteorology. They’re big fans of open source, especially MongoDB, and ready to discuss all of the above with you. Please welcome them on their journey into entrepreneurship.
