ScobleShow Interview

June 29, 2007

I was recently interviewed by Robert Scoble about Leopard for the ScobleShow, and I’m happy to say that the interview was just posted a few hours ago!

This is some of the best press that I could ever hope for, and I think the demo really proves the point about how easy it is to create programs in Leopard.

Here’s a memorable Scoble quote: “This rocks!”

Hopefully you agree.

Thoughts on NECC

June 29, 2007

NECC has come and gone, but the two days that I was there were fantastic. With something like 18,000 teachers and educational administrators in attendance, there was never any shortage of people to talk to about WeatherBug Achieve and Leopard.

I was able to demo the tool a number of times, and each time, the reaction that I received was very favorable. Since the event was held in my home state of Georgia, I had the opportunity to meet a lot of local teachers, and we’re going to start making plans to visit some of their schools in order to demonstrate Leopard in the classroom.

The contest was also very well received, and I’ll be posting some more detailed information about it a little bit later. Overall, I had a lot of fun, and I’m looking forward to participating in other events like this one in the future.

NECC: Here We Come!

June 25, 2007

I’m currently sitting in a hotel room in Atlanta and preparing for the next two days to be full of Leopard demos and discussions with teachers and school administrators at NECC. I’ve been eagerly anticipating this conference, and I can’t wait to spread the word about Leopard to thousands of educational technology representatives.

We’ve issued a press release to announce that WeatherBug and its programming partners will be at NECC, and to let everyone know about the newly formed National Online Science and Programming Fair that Leopard is a part of.

Purchase Leopard

June 8, 2007

Now that Leopard v2.1 has been out for a little over a month, we’re just starting to take orders for the registered version. When you purchase Leopard, an e-mail will be sent to you that contains the link to download the registered component so that you can create executables that run independently of Leopard.

If you’re involved with education, then please contact us directly to take advantage of the special educational rate.

Thanks for your support!

Palo Alto Trip

June 6, 2007

I’m flying out to Palo Alto tomorrow morning to do a video interview about Leopard and will be coming back tomorrow night. It’s a quick trip, but this is a great opportunity for me to talk about Leopard. This will be my first time visiting this part of California, and since it’s the technology hub, I’m definitely looking forward to it. It’s going to be nice to finally visit a place that I’ve read and heard so much about.

Details will emerge as soon as the interview is published.
