A bunny suit means I'm helping

This is the flyer for the 2010 Creative Core $200K Business plan competition

Standing Out of Place

Mezmeriz is on this flyer because we won the event in 2008. What's funny about the flyer is the picture. First off, I've only been into the clean room twice. This picture was one of two times, and it was just so they could take a picture of me in the clean room. Equally amusing is that I don't ever get to touch the wafers or mirrors or anything fragile. I tend to break fragile things. However in this picture, it looks like I am Shahyaan's able and indispensable assistant. Shahyaan, You're Welcome!

Anyways, you should enter this event. It's a great focal point for any startup. If you want to hear about how to win a business plan competition, check out these videos.

Sometimes entrepreneurs get married too

This past weekend I had the pleasure of attending the wedding of my longtime friend Andy Lufburrow. I could tell you all about what a great entrepreneur he is and all that sort of stuff I tend to write about, but really it was about seeing a good friend take a major step in his life.

The start of a new venture

Some of you may remember Andy as a regular feature on this blog and most famously as SightSpeed member #4, others have more colorful recollections that I'll not post here. Nonetheless, he's a great guy and a great entrepreneur who I count as one of my closest friends.

Not the first time I have leaned on Andy

In closing, I'll quote Andy's brother John quoting Scottish sages:

"To make a marriage a success, you should never lie, cheat,or drink.

However, if you must lie, lie in Heather's arms.

If you must cheat, cheat death.

If you must drink, drink with us!"
