Recently I helped with an appendix covering the ROI calculation when dealing with online advertising campaigns. I thought I would include it here in case it might be useful […](image)

Paper Prototype User TestingRobuser test flyerpaper prototype user test

Sun, 26 Sep 2010 16:52:31 +0000

A much needed update!  I joined Liftopia back in November as VP of Product.  My primary role is to lead the charge on the technology development side of things but as is the case with all startups, everyone does a bit of everything.  I joined the team right as we were heading into our peak […](image)

I recently met a scrappy entrepreneur who is working on some very interesting technology that has potential to help large enterprises.
