The efficiency-minded among us cringe when we see the reinvention of a wheel. Simon Murtha-Smith reinvented the wheel by spending months connecting personal data/social APIs, and his startup ran out money before he'd had a chance to build real features. Before, during and after Simon's experience, people were solving these same problems on their own. So, he and two co-founders set out to solve the problem for everyone. Simon will recount this story and share how he was inspired to build a more connected web.

Simon Murtha-Smith

Simon is a tool maker. He grew up in New England with LEGO, LOGO, and Paul Simon. His career has been about learning: learning how to lead, learning how to follow, and learning how to help. He believes in the overwhelming power of positivity, music, and community.
Prior to Singly, Simon founded Introspectr, a personal search engine that aggregated social services and provided a single place to search for them. He is a recovering mechanical and jet propulsion engineer.



Pixate was founded in May 2012 with the goal of enabling designers and developers to create beautiful, native mobile apps quickly and easily. Pixate's flagship product, the Pixate Engine for iOS, integrates a CSS-based styling engine, graphics rendering system, and a SVG-subset for supporting scalable vector graphics. The CSS-based stylings can be changed at run-time and can be downloaded and updated on-demand. The Pixate Engine for iOS version 1.0 is currently available for purchase or for trial download at Pixate was a Y-Combinator Summer 2012 participant and raised early funding through a successful Kickstarter campaign in 2012. Pixate is based in Palo Alto, CA.

Paul Colton

Paul Colton is the CEO and co-founder of Pixate. Paul was previously the founder of several startups. Paul founded Aptana in 2005, creators of Aptana Studio, an open-source web application IDE with over 7 million downloads. Aptana was acquired by Appcelerator in 2011. In 2003, Paul founded Xamlon to create a cross-platform XAML (aka Siverlight) runtime. Prior to that, Paul founded Live Software in 1995, and created JRun, the first commercial Java servlet and JSP application server. Live Software was acquired by Allaire Corp in 1999, and JRun continued to be sold under the ownership of Allaire, Macromedia and then Adobe.

    Hey everyone - Make sure you check out the parking info. It's a bit awkward. Parking in front is limited and the garage is for employees. Free guest parking is around behind the garage. Just follow Patrick Henry Rd. past the garage. Park and walk to the building.

    Look forward to my first meet up and hope to make new friends. I'd like to introduce BudFlash, an app in iOS and Android, which makes it very easy for friends to exchange contact info. Hope we can flash each other during our networking time.
